The fingerprinting of a decomposed corpse sometimes requires the medical examiner to remove the deceased’s fingertips and slip them over their own gloved fingertips, which then allows them to take the prints.
This is false.
No. It really isn’t false. A quick google search would show you that…
And considering the original image I posted is from a forensic pathology textbook I’m going to say again, nope, not false.
When police arrived at Ed Gein’s farmhouse to question him about Mrs. Worden’s whereabouts, they came upon the body of the fifty-eight-year-old grandmother in the summer kitchen behind the house. Hanging by her heels from a pulley, she had been beheaded and disemboweled - strung up and dressed like a butchered deer. The stunned and sickened officers called for reinforcements. Before long, a dozen or more lawmen showed up at the farm and began exploring the unspeakable contents of Ed Gein’s house of horrors. What they found during that long, hellish night was appalling beyond belief.
Soup bowls made from the sawed-off tops of human heads. Chairs upholstered in human flesh. Lampshades fashioned of skin. A boxful of noses. A shade pull decorated with a pair of woman’s lips. A belt made from female nipples. A shoe box containing a collection of preserved female genitalia. The faces of nine women, carefully dried, stuffed with paper and mounted, like hunting trophies, on a wall. A skin vest, complete with breasts, which had been fashioned from the tanned upper torso of a middle-aged woman. Later, Eddie confessed that, at night, he would lace the skin around himself and go mincing around the farmhouse, pretending to be his mother.

The doll in Captain Grant’s House - This doll is actually a sand filled weight used as a door stop in the Adelaide Room. It has a strange habit of disappearing and then showing up in the weirdest spots around the inn. Other objects in this room have done the same, including a bottle of window cleaner that went missing in the blink of an eye and then turned up weeks later.
My parents stayed here several times and only afterward found out how haunted this place is. Freaked Mom out to no end. I laughed.
