I just read the Ed Gain Story.
This is what they found in in house. Sick Fuck

Four noses
Whole human bones and fragments
Nine masks of human skin
Bowls made from human skulls
Ten female heads with the tops sawn off
Human skin covering several chair seats
Mary Hogan's head in a paper bag
Bernice Worden's head in a burlap sack
Nine vulvas in a shoe box
A belt made from human female nipples
Skulls on his bedposts
Organs in the refrigerator
A pair of lips on a draw string for a windowshade
A lampshade made from the skin from a human face
