Monster morgue David Fuller was sentenced to four more years in prison for sexually abusing the dead bodies of 23 women in mortuaries.
The 68-year-old hospital electrician and father of four is already in prison for murdering two women and abusing more than 100 corpses.
He admitted to 16 new charges, including 12 for sexual penetration of a corpse and four for possessing extreme pornography.
Fuller was sentenced to prison at the Old Bailey for the additional offenses committed in Kent mortuaries between 2005 and 2020. The sentence will run concurrently with his other sentences.
After the judge told him he would spend “the rest of his mortal life behind bars,” he was led away with a yell of “scum.”
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 glad you’re finally being held accountable for what you did just seven hours after she died.”
“I hope the shame stays with you for life now that the world knows the monster you are,” the daughter of one of his victims said.
“I kissed my mum to say goodbye, and that should have been the last human touch she had,” another daughter said. Love and devotion abound. It was instead your heinous touch.”
“He has stolen my memories of a peaceful death,” said another daughter. It has tainted my memories of my dear mother, and I am deeply embarrassed.
“I know it shouldn’t be my shame, but I carry it anyway.” David Fuller, you should be ashamed.”
In 1987, Fuller of Heathfield, East Sussex, murdered Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20.
He admitted the murders — as well as abusing corpses, including children, in Kent and Sussex morgues for 12 years — in Maidstone crown court last December. DNA evidence linked him to the murders.
During his hospital employment, depraved Fuller committed the six mortuary offenses, even recording himself abusing the bodies.
We revealed last week that compensation for his victims’ families could cost up to £10 million.
Kent’s Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust has agreed to implement a voluntary compensation scheme.
Most families will receive an average of £30,000, with some receiving more than £100,000 for psychological harm.
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 the agreed-upon compensation scheme recognizes that payments must be made to family members and makes adequate provision for psychological treatment where it is reasonably required.”
Libby Clark of the Crown Prosecution Service previously stated, “Fuller’s actions were depraved, disgusting, and dehumanizing – on a scale never before encountered in legal history.”
