The self-described founder of a Earth Day is a convicted murderer.

Despite helping to found the environmental movement’s most important day of the year, environmental activist and self-proclaimed co-founder Earth Day Ira Einhorn had a dark side. NBC News recalls that Einhorn was found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend and stuffing her “composted” body inside a trunk.

After his girlfriend of five years, Helen “Holly” Maddux, broke up with him, Einhorn threatened to throw her belongings onto the street is she didn’t pick them up. She went to Einhorn’s apartment to retrieve them on Sept. 9, 1977 but was never seen again.
