David Fuller, who pleaded guilty on Thursday to the 1987 murders of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce, also admitted to sexually abusing the corpses of women and children for 12 years, per BBC News.
Investigators have so far detected 99 potential morgue victims, of which 78 have been identified, but believe there may be hundreds more, Sky News said.
When British detectives were searching the house of a 67-year-old hospital worker in connection with the murder of two women, they found hidden computer drives, CDs, and memory cards detailing years of grisly sexual offenses, Sky News reported.
Necrophilia, also known as necrophilism, necrolagnia, necrocoitus, necrochlesis, and thanatophilia, is sexual attraction towards or a sexual act involving corpses
More than 14 million images uncovered by detectives unveiled countless horrors, including child pornography and footage of Fuller sexually assaulting dead bodies at hospitals in Kent, England.
Hard drives and handwritten diaries, hidden behind furniture, detailed the ages of those he molested between 2008 and 2020, Sky News reported. His youngest was a child, aged nine, and his oldest victim was a 100-year-old woman, the media outlet said.
A spokesman for Boris Johnson said: “The sickening nature of these crimes is very difficult to comprehend and while words cannot describe the pain inflicted on these families, the prime minister has been profoundly moved by some of the experiences that have been shared.
“His thoughts are also with Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce who were brutally killed over 30 years ago, and while nothing will ever take away their pain, he hopes seeing justice finally done will provide their families with some comfort.”
Fuller said the offenses took place within hospital morgues, where he worked as a technical supervisor since 1989, per Sky News. According to the BBC, investigators said Fuller would work late shifts and go into the morgue when other staff members had left.
Kent Police are “working to identify any further victims and specialist officers will contact families who may be directly affected by this case privately,” a spokesperson told Sky News.
