Ed Gein was born at the turn of the century into the small farming community of Plainfield Wisconsin Gein lived on his family homestead with a weak ineffectual brother and domineering mother who taught him from an early age that sex was a sinful thing Eddie ran the familys 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield until his brother Henry died in 1944 and his mother in 1945 When she died her son was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life The rest of the house however soon degenerated into a madmans shambles Weird old Eddie as the local community knew him began to develop a deeply unhealthy interest in the intimate anatomy of the female body - and interest that was fed by medical encyclopedias books on anatomy pulp horror novels and pornographic magazines He became particularly interested in the atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Second World War and the medical experiments performed on Jews in the concentration camps Soon he graduated on to the real thing by digging up decaying female corpses by night in far-flung Wisconsin cemeteries These he would dissect and keep some parts heads sex organs livers hearts and intestines Then he would flay the skin from the body draping it over a tailors dummy or even wearing it himself to dance and cavort around the homestead - a practice that apparently gave him intense gratification On other occasions Gein took only the body parts that particularly interested him He was especially fascinated by the excised female genitalia which he would fondle and play with sometimes stuffing them into a pair of womens panties which he would then wear around the house Geins fascination with the female body eventually led him to seek out fresher samples His victims usually women of his mothers age included 54-year old Mary Hogan who disappeared from the tavern she ran in December 1954
