1. The video diaries of the killers of Cassie Stoddart.
Cassie was murdered by two of her friends when she was alone, house sitting for family. The killers wanted to be prolific murderers and chose Cassie only because they knew she’d be alone. One killer led the police to where they buried all the evidence, never mentioning the tape. The murder is not filmed, but the moments leading up to and immediately after the murder are taped
Ed Gein (pronounce ‘Geen’ with a hard G) was born on August 27, 1906 in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His father was a timid alcoholic, and his mother was fanatically religious. Gein and his older brother, Henry, grew up in a household ruled by their mother’s puritanical preachings about the sins of lust and carnal desire.
Ed ran the family’s 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield, Wisconsin after his brother died in 1944. When his mother died in 1945, Ed was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor, still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life.
