GREAT BRITAIN- Some have argued that if ever someone should have been sentenced to the death penalty, it’s this guy. However since it’s the United Kingdom, David Fuller, who molested the dead bodies of girls and women aged from nine to 100 years old, has been sentenced to life in prison, Breitbart reports.
Fuller worked in the British healthcare system was sentenced Wednesday for the murders of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce, as well as the sexual abuse of dead girls and women.
Last month, Fuller pleaded guilty to the killings, which he committed in 1987, the so-called “Bedsit Murders.” He also confessed to abusing 78 corpses in two separate British morgues over a 12-year span while he worked as a hospital electrician.
The BBC reported that Fuller was sentenced to two life sentences for killing the two women, along with a concurrent 12 years added on top for the remaining crimes.
During his sentencing, the trial magistrate told Fuller that he had caused “so much sorrow” in the local community due to his crimes.
“Your actions go against everything that is right and humane. They are incomprehensible,” the judge said. “You had no regard for the dignity of the dead.”
For families of the victims however, Fuller was considered to be more of an “animal, despicable, sick and twisted,” they said.
“I can never forget having to identify the badly-damaged body of my own daughter,” Caroline Pierce’s mother told the court. “The images of seeing my daughter in that way, repeat over and over in my mind.”
“You raped my baby. She couldn’t say no to a dirty, 66-year-old man who was abusing her body,” the mother of the deceased nine-year-old said during victim impact statements. “She couldn’t say no, but she would have.”
Moreover during the trial, the court heard evidence that the corpse of a 25-year-old woman, Wendy Knell, murdered inside her home on June 23, 1987, showed that she had been raped, although it couldn’t be determined if that happened before, during or after her death.
In the case of Caroline Pierce, it is unclear what happened to her other than she was abducted in November of the same year. Neighbors reported they had heard screaming. Her half-naked body was found three weeks later.
Due to advances in DNA testing, Fuller was eventually tied to both cases over 30 years later, advances which resulted in his arrest, trial, and conviction.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Sun reports that a request was made to investigate how Fuller was able to carry out his crimes undetected for so long. Parliament member Greg Clark had written to the Home and Health Secretary asking for a full investigation into how Fuller was able to stay under the radar for so long.
The probe was launched questioning the security of mortuaries in the two hospitals in question, which Clark said have state-of-the-art security systems.
“Frankly one of those hospitals is a very modern, state-of-the-art one with top security systems. So if it can happen there, it can happen elsewhere.”
The U.K.’s Health Secretary Sajid Javid recently announced that an independent inquiry was launched looking into the gruesome crimes.
“It will help us understand how these offenses took place without detection in the trust, identify any areas where early action by the trust was necessary, and then consider wider national issues, including for the NGS,” the Health Secretary said.
This isn’t of course the first time something like this has happened. In case you missed it, here is a previous report we published:
BIBB COUNTY, GA – Deputies from the Bibb County Sheriff’s office caught a man in the act of engaging in necrophilia on the footsteps of a local resource center for the homeless. What was believed to solely be a depraved act has now evolved into a homicide investigation.

When deputies arrived at the scene of a call that was described to authorities as two people engaging in intercourse outside, they happened upon an act that could be accurately described as “dead wrong”.
According to the initial media release provided by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, 55-year-old Kenny Whitehead was said to be found defiling the corpse of a woman on the footsteps of the Daybreak Resource Center at 4:00 a.m. on May 17th.
When deputies initially told Whitehead to put his clothes on, still thinking they were responding to a call akin to public indecency, that’s when they realized the woman was unresponsive.
EMS hit the scene thereafter and determined that the woman had been deceased for a period of time. At the time, authorities had only charged Whitehead with necrophilia. However, according to a recent update on the case, the BCSO stated the following:
“Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Investigators have determined after further investigation that this incident is now a homicide. Kenny Whitehead now has additional charges of murder and rape added to his current charges of necrophilia. This case is still actively being investigated.”

Considering the nature of the crimes alleged, the BCSO has opted to not release the identity of the female victim. However, the next of kin was notified of the deceased.
As for Whitehead, he’s currently being held without bond.
There seems to be no shortage of bizarre crime ongoing lately. In Milan, Missouri, a recent case was equally as disturbing once you hear about this new mother allegedly did to her newborn son.
A 28-year-old woman is now facing charges of first-degree murder after police say she gave birth while at work and allowed her newborn baby to drown inside of a toilet.
The child’s death, which is said to have occurred inside of the restroom of a meat packing plant on May 6th, resulted in the mother being formally charged on May 15th.

Court documents state that Makuya Stephanie Kambamba gave birth to her son inside of the restroom of the Smithfield Foods plant in Milan where she’s employed.
The documents that were filed by the Missouri State Highway Patrol allege that Kambamba told responding officers that she saw her infant son inside of the toilet after giving birth, with his face down in the water.
The suspect then reportedly told officers that she remained on the toilet while enduring further contractions related to labor, and did not check on the status of her infant for approximately 30 minutes.
An autopsy conducted on the deceased infant revealed that the cause of death was consistent with that of drowning.

On top of the first-degree murder charges that Kambamba is facing, she’d also facing charges of second-degree murder, first-degree involuntary manslaughter, second-degree involuntary manslaughter and abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death.
After being processed through the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office on the evening of May 15th, the suspect was then taken to the Daviess/DeKalb Regional Jail in Pattonsburg, Missouri where she’s currently being held without bond.
In news related to alleged instances of parents harming their children, Law Enforcement Today has gained new insight into a case that pertains to a father who police say stabbed his 6-year-old daughter.
A rather bizarre case is under investigation, after police arrested a father that they allege stabbed his 6-year-old daughter. What makes the case unique is that the father alleged his daughter was inadvertently stabbed by two men who were robbing him, but police are now saying he made the story up.

There are currently not many details that have been released related to the motives of the suspect arrested by the NYPD regarding this odd case of an alleged stabbing of a 6-year-old girl by her father, 55-year-old Jia Pan.
Police had initially believed the young girl was stabbed when two men were actively robbing her father on Manhattan’s Lower East Side at roughly 12:30 a.m. on May 14th.
At the time, the events that were alleged to have resulted in the young girl’s hospitalization were relayed by her father – who has now been arrested.
He’d informed police at the time that his daughter and himself were out walking the neighborhood when the knife-point robbery transpired. According to the now-suspect, his daughter had gotten stabbed in the abdomen when inserting herself between the alleged robbers and her father.
UPDATE: The father of a 6-year-old girl stabbed in Manhattan overnight is in police custody. Authorities say he fabricated a story about a robbery in which the girl was injured, but instead, he was the one that stabbed her, they said. https://t.co/VqNGYAmZ9B

Pan had told police at the time that the thieves had managed to make off with his gold chain and a credit card. Yet, there were elements that didn’t quite add up to investigators regarding this alleged robbery articulated by the suspect.
Apparently, police said that when they interviewed Pan about the incident, he was still in possession of not only several credit cards, but a sizable amount of cash.
A source had informed the New York Daily News that Pan’s story was also constantly changing. After further questioning of the suspect, it was said by police that Pan had admitted to being the one responsible for his daughter’s injury:
“When he was taken in for questioning, things didn’t add up. After we questioned him some more, he admitted to stabbing his daughter.”
Police are further alleging that the stabbing didn’t even take place anywhere near Manhattan’s Lower East Side, but rather the stabbing is alleged to have happened somewhere on the Upper West Side.
Thankfully, it has been reported that she’s in stable condition.
While one could reasonably conclude why someone would attempt to cover their proverbial tracks if indeed guilty of a stabbing, questions loom over why a father would stab his 6-year-old daughter. To date, police have still not stated as to what may have compelled the suspect to commit such an act.
No matter the criminal theory, Pan is facing some serious charges. He’s currently being charged with attempted manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
