He made bowls out of their bones!
Edward Gein, listed as the most heinous murderer of all time is also known as the Mad Butcher of Plainfield. When the crime scene was investigated, the police found some really terrible and inhuman works by him.
He was born in Augusta and George Gein on August 27, 1906. Since childhood, Ed never had any friends. He spent most of his time alone. This led him to the dark corners of his mind.
His mother, Augusta was a profoundly religious woman and his father George, was an unemployed alcoholic. In 1957, police first suspected Ed of a missing store clerk, Bernice Worden. That night, while a search operation going on in Ed’s house, police made the first terrific discovery.
Worden’s headless body was hanging upside down and was tied with ropes. Her trunk was empty and the entire ribcage was torn out. After that night, on further inspection, police found out some more ruinous and horrific objects.
This will shake you:
Human skulls at the corners of his bed and were also used as bowls, couch covers were made of human flesh and even a human heart. A belt made of female nipples and a vest made out of woman’s torso was also found.
Upon questioning, Gein revealed that he used to dig up freshly buried graves and steal dead bodies from them. These dead bodies were mostly of middle-aged women, who resembled his mother.
He also refused to have sex with any of these dead bodies just because ‘they smelt too bad’. Even after committing the most inhuman crimes, Gein was not sent to jail as he was declared ‘unfit for trial’. Doctors claimed that he was not in a sane state of mind and he spent rest of his life in hospital. The law of insanity saved him from the arrest. Ed’s house was then burnt down and his car was sold in an auction in $760.
On July 28, 1964, Gein died of cancer which caused heart failure and respiratory breakdown. His gravestone was stolen by some souvenirs in 2000 but was recovered soon and is now kept preserved. So, this was all about the most insensitive and obtuse person I have ever read about.
