Gloves made from human skin found inside Ed Gein’s home.

Gloves made from human skin found inside Ed Gein’s home.

On November 16, 1957, Plainfield hardware store owner Bernice Worden disappeared and police had reason to suspect Gein. Worden’s son had told investigators that Gein had been in the store the evening before the disappearance, saying he would return the following morning for a gallon of anti-freeze. A sales slip for a gallon of anti-freeze w
as the last receipt written by Worden on the morning she disappeared. Upon searching Gein’s property, investigators discovered Worden’s decapitated body in a shed, hung upside down by ropes at her wrists, with a crossbar at her ankles. The torso was “dressed out” like that of a deer. She had been shot with a .22-caliber rifle, and the mutilations performed after death.

Searching the house, authorities found:

Four noses
Whole human bones and fragments
Nine masks of human skin
Bowls made from human skulls
Ten female heads with the tops sawn off
Human skin covering several chair seats
Mary Hogan’s head in a paper bag
Bernice Worden’s head in a burlap sack
Nine vulvas in a shoe box
A belt made from human female nipples
Skulls on his bedposts
Organs in the refrigerator
A pair of lips on a draw string for a windowshade
A lampshade made from the skin from a human face

These artifacts were photographed at the crime lab and then were properly destroyed.
