An inquiry ordered by the United Kingdom government said Tuesday it had found serious flaws in hospitals where an electrician may have been found guilty of murder. Having sex with a hundred corpses over 15 years without being detected.
Necrophilia David Fuller This came to light in 2020 when DNA analysis was used to link him to the murders of two women and millions of sex abuse images were found in his home. The images include videos of him having sex with dead bodies of women and girls Mortuaries of two hospitals in the south east of England Where he worked.
“The crimes committed by David Fuller are truly scandalous,” the 308-page report said. “However, deficiencies in management, administration, regulation and processes and a consistent lack of interest contributed to creating the environment in which he could do them.”
“This is not just a story of a fraudulent electrical maintenance supervisor. “David Fuller’s victims and their relatives have been repeatedly abandoned by people at all levels charged with protecting and caring for them.”
Fuller, 69, He is serving a life sentence without parole for two murders. At the same time, he is serving a 12-year sentence for dozens of necrophilia cases, unprecedented in a British court, the lawyer says.
The subject of the investigation is how Fuller managed to get away with it for so long and prevent it from happening again.
Fuller, who had a criminal record as a burglar who never published work papers, was employed at the now-closed Kent and Sussex Hospital two years after killing Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pearce, 20, in two separate attacks. Town of Tunbridge Wells in 1987. The crimes were not solved until 33 years later, when he went to work at Tunbridge Wells Hospital in Bembury.
According to the investigation, Fuller did Between 2005 and 2020 at least 101 girls and women – aged 9 to 100 – were raped 140 times. Each case had time-stamped photo or video evidence.
The inquiry, led by former NHS chief executive Jonathan Michael, made 17 recommendations, including the installation of surveillance cameras in mortuary and mortuary rooms, and visits by non-mortuary workers and contractors. Another employee.
Miles Scott, chief executive of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in 2018, said most of the report’s recommendations had been implemented and others would soon follow. “I am deeply saddened by the pain and anguish” of the families of Fuller’s victims, he said in a statement.
According to the report, Fuller committed his crimes brazenly, putting himself at risk during working hours when other employees were at the mortuary. The inquiry said that it was not possible to find out how he abused during working hours without being caught.
“It’s hard to believe that he was at risk of committing a crime during normal working hours at the morgue. It goes unnoticed by the warehouse staff As we were told, who was in the apartment,” the report said.
Fuller, who occasionally had to perform maintenance on the mortuary’s cooling system, allegedly entered the apartment as many as 444 times in a year – without being properly questioned, according to the inquest.
Fuller said he chose his victims by consulting a logbook. I avoided people who died from infections or covid-19According to the report.
Relatives of the victims interviewed by the inquest, but not identified in the report, expressed their shock at learning what happened to their loved ones and spoke of how difficult it was to move on afterward.
A widow said she did not dare to tell her family.
“My family is not affected because they don’t know,” the man said. “It basically stole 25 years of happy memories from me. … Anything that reminds me of my wife also reminds me of what David Fuller did to her.
Many wondered how Fuller could get away with this when surveillance cameras are widespread across the UK. Some said they had lost faith in NHS leadership, and at least one family member called for the chief executive to be sacked.
“I know they are not alive, but they are vulnerable people,” said the daughter of one of the victims. “So why would someone who is a subcontractor be allowed to come and go in that building at all hours of the day without some kind of supervision? “I find that to be an absolutely disgraceful loss of confidence.”
