Ed Gein was a notorious killer and grave robber. He inspired the creation of several film characters, including Norman Bates and Leatherface.
- He was born on August 27th 1906
- He was obsessively devoted to his very religious mother (Which is a theme in Bates Motel, Norman Bates).
- Once she died, he began grave robbing
How to do the Job the Right Way
- I would of brought him in sooner and started questioning him right away, instead of waiting two days for him to confess to the murders.
- Since he showed no remorse or guilt, I would've gotten him some help. But that's just me.
- Although he was only officially linked to two murders, a couple of “fresh” va@#&as were found in his house that could not be matched to his known victims or any cemetery records. (I would've ran a DNA test on them to see who they belonged to.)
- He was also suspected of killing his brother. So I would've tried to collect more data and evidence.
- 1958 a judge deemed him insane and he was sent off to an asylum. He was a model patient and died there. He was buried next to his Mother.
- When he was alive: About a decade after he had been in the asylum, he was ordered up with trial and proceedings. He was judged competent to stand trial. He was found guilty, but criminally insane.
- I would've sent him to the asylum right away, once all of his collection of body parts were found.
