  • Hi, to our lovely True Crimer's, thanks for listening and please help us spread the word by telling your friends and family about us.
  • This week Kim is covering an American convicted murderer and body snatcher.
  • Ed received widespread attention in 1957 after Cops discovered he had exhumed corpses from local graveyards and made trophies and keepsakes from their bones and skin.
  • Gein also confessed to killing two women:
  • tavern owner Mary Hogan in 1954 and hardware store owner Bernice Worden in 1957.
  • Gein was initially found unfit to stand trial and confined to a mental health facility. By 1968, he was judged competent to stand trial;
  • he was found guilty of the murder of Worden,
  • but he was found legally insane and was remanded to a psychiatric institution.
  • He died at Mendota Mental Health Institute of respiratory failure, on July 26, 1984, aged 77.
  • He is buried next to his family in the Plainfield Cemetery, in a now-unmarked grave.
  • This guy had a difficult childhood and grew up to be totally depraved.
  • Definitely Mummy issues and a whole lot more to go along with that.
  • listen to all of the sordid things that he did and created if your stomach can take it.
  • have a listen kick back and get ready to have your mind blown by the depravity of mankind.
  • Please take care and stay safe, Love Steph and Kim xx
