List Rules Vote up the most horrifying photo of a killer in his victim's clothes

It is common for some murderers to take "trophies" from their victims, and in some cases, those trophies are their clothing. Photos exist of serial killers wearing their victim's clothes. In other cases, these criminals were caught on surveillance cameras playing their macabre game of dress-up. Some murderers were even arrested while clad in their victim's clothing.

Below you will find an offering of each variety, from actual serial killer photos, serial killer victim pics, and accounts of murderers donning their stolen trophies. Be warned that some of the images are NSFW.

Ed Gein

Ed Gein didn't wear his victims' clothes, but he did wear his victims. No photos exist of the serial killer, grave robber, and cannibal "dancing in the moonlight" in his infamous skin masks and suits. There is, however, a fair amount of photographic evidence of these repugnant creations floating around out there. This is one of the less graphic photos available. Note that this skin mask bears a striking resemblance to the mask worn by Michael Myers in the Halloween films.
