Ed
 Gein was arrested 58 years ago today in Plainfield, WI after the 
remains of a local hardware owner were found on his property. After his 
mother’s death in 1945, Ed began exhuming the remains of recently 
deceased women who reminded him of her. He felt as though he had the 
power to resurrect the dead. Spiritland Cemetery, just a few minutes 
north of Plainfield near the town of Almond, is one of three cemeteries 
where Gein desecrated graves to procure body parts for his ghastly 
hobbies. The cemetery got its name because a man claimed to commune with
 the spirit of his wife there after her burial. Numerous reports of 
paranormal experiences in the cemetery have lead some to believe that 
Gein’s tampering left the spirits restless in Spiritland.Photo via cultofweird
