    David Fuller (67) Admitted Murdering Two Women & Committing Necrophilia Against Dozens Of Deceased Patients In A Hospital Mortuary

    David Fuller: man admits two murders and sexual abuse of multiple corpses

    Trial of former hospital electrician is believed to be worst case of necrophilia in British legal history



    An electrician who admitted murdering two women in 1987 also sexually attacked scores of corpses in a hospital mortuary in the worst offending of its kind in British legal history, prosecutors say.

    David Fuller pleaded guilty to murdering Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, in separate attacks in Tunbridge Wells, Kent police said.

    The 67-year-old changed his pleas on Thursday partway through his trial at Maidstone crown court, which heard that he sexually assaulted the two women after killing them. He had admitted killing both women but originally pleaded not guilty to murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

    His trial heard that he also sexually assaulted women?s corpses in the mortuaries at Kent and Sussex hospital and Tunbridge Wells hospital while working there.

    Police have detected at least 99 potential victims of Fuller, in what is believed to be the worst case of necrophilia in British legal history.

    Before his murder trial, he pleaded guilty to 51 other offences, including 44 charges relating to 78 victims identified who were attacked in mortuaries, which he had access to through his work as an electrician. The attacks on the corpses are believed to have been committed between 2008 and November 2020.

    In footage released by Kent police of Fuller?s interview with detectives, he says: ?I want to admit ? I am admitting the offences but I don?t really want to go into detail.?

    When Fuller?s home was raided police discovered 4m images of sexual abuse. Most were downloaded from the internet, but Fuller had also recorded himself abusing bodies.

    The CPS said Fuller?s necrophilia was unprecedented in British legal history: ?Searches of Fuller?s home following his arrest uncovered hard drives concealed in a hide in his home, revealing evidence of prolific sexual offending of a kind no British court has seen before.

    ?Between 2008 and 2020, Fuller had filmed and photographed himself sexually abusing the bodies of dozens of women and girls at two Tunbridge Wells hospital mortuaries he was able to access through his job as the maintenance supervisor.?

    Knell was found dead in her apartment with severe injuries in Guildford Road on 23 June 1987. Pierce was killed five months later, on 24 November, outside her home in Grosvenor Park. Neighbours described hearing screams from her flat on the night in question, the court heard on Monday. She was reported missing, and her body was later discovered in a water-filled dyke at St Mary-in-the-Marsh on 15 December 1987. DNA evidence from both women?s bodies linked Fuller to their killings.

    There were reports of ?prowler activity? in the lead-up to both women?s deaths, with local people reporting a voyeur looking through their windows.

    Fuller was arrested for murder on 3 December last year after new analysis of decades-old DNA evidence, and officers searched his home. There they found images of dead women at the two hospital mortuaries being abused by Fuller, the prosecutor, Duncan Atkinson QC, said on Monday.

    Officers then found four hard drives with 5TB of data storage in total attached to the back of a cupboard. ?When these hard drives were examined, they were found to contain a library of unimaginable sexual depravity,? Atkinson said.

    In a police interview, Fuller admitted to using Facebook to search for photos of the people he abused in the mortuary.

    In relation to identifying and naming the files containing images of his offending against dead people, he said he had gone back to name them at a later stage, using the ledgers from the mortuary and identification tags on the bodies, Atkinson said.

    He added: ?He admitted to searching for them on the internet, including on Facebook. He claimed that this would be after the offending, rather than research before offending.?

    Atkinson said these images provided evidence that Fuller committed the acts out of ?sexual gratification? and not mental illness.

    The home secretary, Priti Patel, said she hoped the victims? families could ?find some solace in seeing justice finally done?. Describing the case as shocking, she added: ?The sickening nature of the crimes committed will understandably cause public revulsion and concern.?

    Libby Clark, of the CPS, said: ?This highly dangerous man has inflicted unimaginable suffering on countless families and he has only admitted his long-held secrets when confronted with overwhelming evidence.

    ?I have no doubt he would still be offending to this day had it not been for this painstaking investigation and prosecution.?

    Sajid Javid, the health secretary, said the NHS had written to all health trusts asking for mortuary access and postmortem activities to be reviewed. An independent review has started at the trust where Fuller worked and the Human Tissue Authority has been asked for advice on whether rules need to be changed.

    A date for Fuller?s sentencing has not yet been set.

    David Fuller, Hospital morgue worker murdered Wendy Knell (25), and Caroline Pierce (20), and sexually abused at least 102 corpses sentenced to life in jail

    David Fuller murdered two women and sexually abused at least 102 corpses in hospital mortuaries

    Hospital electrician David Fuller, who sexually abused the bodies of at least 102 women and girls, has been sentenced to life in jail.

    Fuller, 67, killed and then sexually assaulted two young women, Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce, in two separate attacks in 1987.

    Fuller was given two whole life sentences for the two murders and twelve years for his abuse of women and girls in hospital mortuaries. In her sentencing remarks, judge Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb described Fuller as a ?vulture, picking your victims from among the dead?.

    She continued: ?You will spend every day of the rest of your life in prison.?

    Fuller was caught 33 years after the 1987 murders following a DNA breakthrough. Police investigations at his home revealed Fuller had recorded himself abusing bodies in hospital mortuaries for more than a decade.

    Following the sentencing, chief superintendent Paul Fotheringham revealed that police were now looking into other unsolved missing persons cases, rapes and murders in the South East of England. He said that there was ?every chance? that Fuller had committed other crimes.

    It was revealed in court on Wednesday that Fuller had abused the corpses of at least 102 women ? including a nine-year-old girl, two 16-year-olds and a woman aged 100.

    Prosecutor Duncan Atkinson QC told Maidstone Crown Court: ?David Fuller systematically and repeatedly sexually abused the bodies of dead women and girls.?

    He said that though the police know the names of 82 of the victims, a further 20 may never be identified.

    The mother of Fuller?s youngest victim said the abuse of her nine-year-old daughter?s body would ?haunt me forever and the rest of my life?.

    She added: ?My pain ? the guilt that I feel because I left her in that hospital, the one that?s meant to be a safe place.

    ?I have nothing, no way of closure, how will I make it up to her? How will I stand by her side now, and how will I nurse that little body that has been ruined and disrespected by that vile man??

    The mother of Azra Kemal, whose body was assaulted in a mortuary by David Fuller, has said that, although justice has been served for the families of the two women who were murdered, the sentences were too lenient for Fuller?s mortuary crimes.

    Speaking outside the court on Wednesday, Nevres Kemal called for a statutory public inquiry.

    David Fuller received three months each for the three assaults on her daughter?s body. Speaking about the length of those sentences, Ms Kemal said: ?I do not feel that is fair and just. It?s not acceptable, she was worth more than that.?

    She said that people receive more for possession of class A drugs. Referring to the judge, Ms Kemal said: ?She delivered what she could but the law has to change. This is from my heart.

    ?Justice for the families of the mortuary crimes has not been served.?

    In her sentencing remarks, Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb QC said the killings of the two women in 1987 were ?premeditated? and ?carefully planned and executed?.

    She described David Fuller as a ?prowler?, and murder victim Wendy Knell as ?successful, happy and independent?.

    Fellow murder victim Caroline Pierce, the judge said, was ?a lively young woman? when she was killed.

    She said that the murders were sexually motivated, adding: ?Once you had killed these women you spent time with them to satisfy your sexual deviancy.?

    Speaking to Fuller, the judge said: ?Your violations go against everything right and humane, they are incomprehensible.?

    Speaking to Fuller, the judge said: ?Your violations go against everything right and humane, they are incomprehensible.?

    He also plead guilty to 51 other offences, including 44 charges relating to 78 victims in mortuaries. The charges also including possession of an extreme pornographic image and taking indecent images of children.

    Chief Superintendent Paul Fotheringham spoke outside the court after the sentencing. He said: ?We are delighted with the sentencing ? to get two whole life sentences when there are so little of those in the country shows the seriousness of the crimes.?

    He called Fuller a ?monster? and said ?hundreds if not thousands? of people had been affected by his crimes.

    He described Fuller as ?one of the worst serial offenders that we?ve ever seen in this country?, adding: ?He will never see the light of day again, which me and my team are absolutely delighted with.?

    He said there were up to 10 mortuary victims that the police will never be able to identify.

    He also said that the police were investigating whether David Fuller committed other crimes before he murdered two women in 1987.

    Mr Fotheringham said the police force were looking at unsolved missing girls cases, rapes and murders across the southeast of England, adding: ?I think there is every chance that he has committed other offences.?

    I read this article awhile back and it's pretty gross but it gives a lot of detail about how he operated and was able to stay undetected in a secure hospital setting and get away with it for so long. I am certain this guy is guilty of far more of what they got him on. Just tragic for these families.

    Azra was one of at least 100 victims - aged between nine and 100 years old - of prolific offender, David Fuller. Friend and Sky News colleague Jason Farrell spoke to Nevres Kemal about her daughter's violation.

    Ugh. The mother's story is so heart breaking. I cant believe how many monsters there are like this out there. Thank God this guy was a moron and video taped himself and left evidence.

    The whole thing is disturbing, but him raping the very young, and very old seems even more sick.

    The fact he was allowed with these bodies for ample amounts of time is unexcusable.

    You're best bet is to go to google, type in the name followed by mydeathspace, and see what comes up. So in this one you would google "David Fuller mydeathspace". The actual search function on this site doesn't work for shit lol.

    DaisyChain, don't worry about it, it happens.

    Funnily enough, when I read this thread last night it sounded familiar so I did the google trick and it still didn't come up, so there's that. Hell, it didn't even bring THIS thread up and I knew it existed because I was in it.

    I couldn't imagine being a family member of one of his victims. How do you process the fact that some sicko had sex with the corpse of your daughter?

    THIS. Those poor families. Those poor cops that had to notify! It's a fucking terrible thing to tell a family especially after they are long dead and buried, but they couldn't NOT tell them. Just ugh.
