Good one!  I will work on that and put it in the queue.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Follow Up:  I have been researching this one since it was requested, and I have come up empty handed.  I am not sure if there was no mugshot photo taken of Gein when he was arrested, or if the photo has never surfaced.  I will continue to look and hopefully, one day, I will have a photo to post.  Here is his Wikipedia page, with a photo, if anyone wants to learn more about him.

In 1992, Dahmer’s trial began where he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.  The court found Dahmer sane and guilty of 15 counts of murder.  He was sentenced to 15 back to back life sentences, totaling 957 years in prison.
