Edward's Hobbies & Creations
Ed Gein's "habit" of exhuming corpses and using the parts to make his own warped and disturbing creations was horrifying.
(props to his creativity though)
Ed Gein's Creations - aka Human Taxidermy:
- bowls made from human skulls
- belts made from ni@#%*s (keepin' it school appropriate)
- chairs made of human flesh
- masks made from at least 9 women
The police were able to make a connection to Gein based on eye witness accounts and a receipt from the hardware store. Since Edward was clearly mentally unstable and was declared insane by a board of specialists at the state hospital, they deemed him unable to stand trial for the murders. Although in the end he did end up standing for trial and was convicted of murder.
The missing corpses were most likely a known problem and people would have known about it. To ensure that it didn't happen again, and that we'd catch the culprit I would have people watching the grave site(s).
