Edward Theodore "Ed" Gein (/??i?n/) (August 27, 1906 – July 26, 1984) was an American murderer and body snatcher. His crimes, committed around his hometown of Plainfield, Wisconsin, gathered widespread notoriety after authorities discovered Gein had exhumed corpses from local graveyards and fashioned trophies and keepsakes from their bones and skin. Gein confessed to killing two women – tavern owner Mary Hogan on December 8, 1954, and a Plainfield hardware store owner, Bernice Worden, on November 16, 1957. Initially found unfit for trial, after confinement in a mental health facility he was tried in 1968 for the murder of Worden and sentenced to life imprisonment, which he spent in a mental hospital.His case influenced the creation of several fictional killers, including Norman Bates of the movie and novel Psycho and its sequels, Leatherface of the movie The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Jame Gumb (Buffalo Bill) of the novel The Silence of the Lambs, Ezra Cobb of the movie Deranged, Bloody Face of the TV series American Horror Story: Asylum, Carrie White of the novel Carrie, and Eddie Gluskin of the video game Outlast.

#Fact
1His intelligence was measured at average, with an IQ of 99, signifying average intelligence; a pretty good score for someone who dropped out of school in 8th grade.
2While Gein was in detention, his house burned to the ground. Arson was suspected.
3Although he is often characterized as a serial killer, only two murders were directly linked to Gein. The "artifacts" he made from body parts were mostly gathered from his grave-robbing activities.
4Grindcore band Ed Gein is named after him.
5The Nu Metal group Mudvayne wrote a song called "Nothing to Gein" paying homage to the serial killer.

12Bunny Gibbons, a sideshow exhibitor, bought his beat-up Ford sedan. He then displayed the car in county fairs and charged onlookers to see: "The car that hauled the dead from their graves". This provided the inspiration for the name of the punk rock group "Ed Gein's Car".
