Morgue monster David Fuller jailed for four more years after sexually abusing 23 women's dead bodies in mortuaries | The Sun
MORGUE monster David Fuller has been sentenced to four more years after sexually abusing 23 women's dead bodies in mortuaries.
The hospital electrician and dad-of-four, 68, is already serving life for murdering two women and abusing more than 100 corpses.
He admitted 16 new charges, including 12 relating to sexual penetration of a corpse and four relating to possession of extreme pornography.
Fuller was jailed at the Old Bailey for the further offences in mortuaries in Kent between 2005 and 2020. The sentence will be served concurrently with his others.
There was a shout of "scum" as he was led away, after the judge told him he will spend "the rest of his mortal life behind bars".
Prosecutor Michael Bisgrove said Fuller had abused the bodies of at least 101 girls and women, although ten of the victims had not been identified and were unlikely ever to be.

Mr Bisgrove said: "The indictment reflects the course of conduct by Mr Fuller during his employment at two mortuaries during which he systematically and repeatedly abused the bodies of dead women and girls. He abused at least 101 women."
The daughter of one of the victims told the Old Bailey today: "The pain and emotional upset seared through my body like a knife.
"He took advantage of her helplessness in death where we were unable to protect her."
Addressing the monster in the dock, she said: "David, I want you to know how much damage you have caused, how your sick and twisted behaviour has damaged families like mine.

"I'm pleased you are now being held accountable for what you did only seven hours after she died."
The daughter of one of his victim's said: "I hope the shame lives with you for life now the world knows the monster you are."
Another daughter said: "I kissed my mum to say goodbye, and that should have been the last human touch she had. Full of love and devotion. Instead it was your vile touch."
Another daughter said: "He has stolen my memories of a peaceful death. It has blighted my memories of my dear mother, and I feel deeply ashamed.
"I know it should not be my shame but I still carry it. It should be your shame, David Fuller."
Fuller, of Heathfield, East Sussex, killed Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, in 1987.
He admitted the murders — and abusing corpses including children for 12 years in Kent and Sussex mortuaries — at Maidstone crown court last December. DNA linked him to the killings.
Depraved Fuller committed the six mortuary offences, even recording himself abusing the bodies, during his hospital employment.
Last week we revealed that compensation for his victims' families is to cost up to £10million.
Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in Kent has agreed to put a voluntary compensation scheme in place.
Most families will get an average £30,000, but some more than £100,000 for psychological damage.
Ben Davey, Senior Chartered Legal Executive at Dean Wilson solicitors, is representing about 80 families of victims.
He said: “It is a national scandal that David Fuller was able to perpetuate his offences on NHS property over such a long period of time.
“The families of each of the victims have had a difficult enough time as it is grieving for the death of a loved one. They have then had the additional trauma on top of this of learning that their family member’s corpse was abused whilst under the care of the NHS.

“I am pleased that this compensation scheme that has been agreed recognises that payments must be made to the family members, and makes appropriate provision for psychological treatment where it is reasonably required.”
The Crown Prosecution Service's Libby Clark previous said: "Fuller’s actions were depraved, disgusting and dehumanising – on a scale that has never been encountered before in legal history."
