So some tidbits from "my" life I had a classmate whose grandmother was neighbors with Ed Gein and said he was just lovely. Now remember Wisconsin neighbors aren't that close in that neck of the woods, but yeah. Super effing creepy barf.
I also used to post with a woman who was a teen at the time whose sister in law was murdered by a serial killer-- Reinaldo Rivera--sicko
He killed 4 women and was caught when he was trying to kill a 5th and she called for help. The sister in law actually had her infant daughter with her at the time and thank heaven's for some reason he decided to leave her at a safe haven. He's on death row and has been for way too long. Southern Fried Homicide did an episode on him. He's hinted he "practiced" on prostitutes.
