A 67-year-old former hospital electrician admitted to killing two women on separate occasions in Tunbridge Wells in Kent in 1987 on Thursday, Nov. 4.

However, the two crimes are only the tip of the iceberg. It was learned that the man, identified as David Fuller, also sexually abused female corpses in mortuaries, including children, Vice.com reported.

The 67-year-old admitted to strangling and sexually assaulting Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce on separate occasions in 1987.

Knell worked as a shop manager and was found dead at her home on June 23, 1987. Five months later, Pierce, who worked as a waitress, was attacked and killed outside her home. Her body was found in a ditch about 40 miles away.

Fuller was only arrested in 2020, meaning he roamed free despite the crimes for roughly 33 years. This was made possible thanks to DNA breakthroughs. Aside from that, police also found sexual offending on a vast scale.

In all, Fuller admitted to 51 sexual offenses, 44 related to 78 corpses that were stored in two mortuaries in Tunbridge Wells. The crimes took place between 2007 and last year.

Millions of images of sexual abuse were found at Fuller’s home by the police. This was made possible because the 67-year-old had access to them because he previously served as the hospital’s maintenance supervisor.

According to reports, Fuller would wait until hospital staff would finish their shift. He would sneak in the fridges and prey on the bodies of dead women.

Among Fuller’s victims allegedly include Azra Kemal, a 24-year-old woman who died in an accident. Most of his victims ranged from 85-years-old. There were allegedly three under the age of 18 at the time of their deaths.

“Not only did he kill and assault two young innocent women in 1987, who should have had their whole lives in front of them, he then found another way to continue his horrific offending by assaulting and defiling multiple victims and traumatising their already grieving families in a way that is clearly beyond comprehension,” Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Fotheringham of Kent Police said.
