Hi there everyone,

I think, not positive, that this was around the 1960s in WI. A man used human skin to wall paper his house and make lamp shades. If anyone could give me the name, I would appreciate it.

My first thought was Ed Gein (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Gein), but he was late 1940s-early 1950s, though the trial wasn't until the late 1960s. His murders served as inspiration for, among others, Psycho and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He had a farm in Wisconsin, and he made souvenirs out of the body parts. Not sure if that's who you're thinking of or not.
