Edward " ED " Theodore Gein By: Hunter White

Type of killer Organized or Disorganized ?

Ed Gein was a organized serial killer because when he murdered his victims he would cut them up and practice human taxidermy. Also after his mother had died he began to start to rob graves and once you rob graves nobody is going to realize that the bodies are gone.

Early Life

Edward Gein was born on August 27 , 1906 in La Crosse Wisconsin. He was the son of a very religious mother and an alcoholic father. While the household ruled by his mothers religious teachings and the sins of his father, once his mother died he soon turned to killing.

What Ed did to his victims

When his mother died in 1945 he never left his house or dated women. After her death he began to start to grave rob and cut off body parts and keep them as trophies. In 1954 he turned from grave robbing to murder. When the police started the investigations they found out that he practiced necrophilia and experimented with human taxidermy. In that same year he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and was unfit to stand trial. He used skullcaps for bowls and stitched skin to make lampshades and chairs. On special occasions he would dance under the moon light wearing other peoples skin. After his death in 1984 he was buried next to his mother in the Plainfield Cemetery and his tombstone was stolen.
