You may not have heard of Ed Gein, but you definitely know the stories that his twisted tale of murder and grave robbing inspired. Although Gein only officially killed two people, his grave robbing hobby made for one of the most shocking police raids in history…
1. Gein was born and raised in the town of Plainfield, Wisconsin, the same location of his crimes. Gein and his brother, Henry, were raised mostly by their mother in near-complete isolation on the family farm.
The only time that he and his brother were allowed to leave the farm was to go to school. Gein’s mother made a habit of punishing her boys for even trying to make friends. Despite receiving a substantial amount of abuse from his mother, Gein was obsessed with pleasing her. She was his best friend.
