Annals of Crime #101


Original Caption:

Wautoma -- Edward Gein, 51-year-old farmer, is shown in Wautoma court where he was arraigned on charges of armed robbery Monday after his arrest following discovery of a truck owned by a hardware store which was robbed recently. The truck was found parked beside a shed on Gein's farm. Further search uncovered the body of the store owner, Mrs. Bernie Worden. Since then 10 skulls were found, but today the grisly figure jumped to 15 when remains of more bodies were found after a new search of Gein's dilapidated Wisconsin home, where he has lived for the last 12 years alone. (1957)
