"Got ya nose!" - Ed Gein

This week I tell Russ all about the killer and body snatcher, Ed Gein a.ka. The Butcher of Plainfield. This bizarre and tortured soul was the inspiration for 3 of the most infamous horror film characters of all time. It is estimated that he exhumed the graves of over 40 women and took many body parts to decorate his home. Ed was tried for one murder but was suspected in three.


Ed had an extremely dysfunctional and unhealthy relationship with his mother Augusta. In the end he was obsessed with the idea of embodying her....literally. Moral of this story... Moms, GET IT TOGETHER!



This is Augusta Gein.........
