Plainfield, Wisconsin Historical Events

On an autumn afternoon when oak leaves scuttle down the lonely roads and a sun, like warm tea, does little to warm the sky, it's easy to give yourself the creeps on a tour of the Ed Gein homeland. It was fall, 43 years ago, during the deer hunting season, when Gein was finally caught, after murdering a woman at the local hardware store and taking her body home to hang in his shed. Witnesses said the body was "dressed out like a deer." The hardware store is still there, and so is the ramp where he backed up the pickup truck to load the body. Gein was also a grave robber who would dig up women's bodies and take home their body parts. He would tan them and sew clothes so he could parade around his farm in women's skin and body parts. He also made them into furniture and sometimes ate them.
