Ed Gein
Claim to fame: A polite man, quiet, kept to himself alot...turned out to have a dead woman on a meathook in his shed and many others in various forms of dismemberment. He was the original American Psycho, who's real life antics in backwoods Wisconsin later served as the foundational basis for fictional killers such as Robert Bloch's Norman Bates and the terrifying Leatherface from Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre
 
 
Ed Gein
Where are they now? He was arrested in 1957 (remains of 15 dismembered women were recovered on his premises), and served 10 years in a mental institution before being declared competent to stand trial. He was found guilty but criminally insane and sent to Central State Hospital at Waupon and then later moved to Mendota Mental Health Institute, where he died in 1984, aged 77.
