Have you ever heard the phrase he's a pschyco or you're a pschyco? I have and I never really paid it much attention until I heard about Edward Theodore Gein. He really put the meaning to pschyco!!

Edward Gein was born on August 27, 1906. His parents were Augusta and George Geid, he had an older brother named Henry. When Ed was two his parents bought a farm in Plainsfield Wisconsin.
