Bedsit Killer's children in 'total shock' at dad's horrific crimes and insist 'they didn't know him'

THE children of morgue monster David Fuller were last night in "total shock" at his dad's horrific crimes – as they insist they "didn't know him".

Fuller, 67, this week admitted the 1987 bedsit murders of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce in Tunbridge Wells, Kent — as it emerged he filmed himself having sex with 100 female corpses in hospital mortuaries. 

Police sources fear there could be further murder victims and thousands more women who were defiled in morgues where he worked. 

Now, his ex-wife has revealed that his kids are in "total shock" at their father's sick crimes.

Gill Palmer, 65, was visibly shaken as she told The Sun: "It’s too horrific. I can’t even take it in myself yet. 

"It’s not right on so many levels. It’s just not right. My children can’t talk about it. They’re not in a good frame of mind. 

"What came out has been a total shock. It’s their father you’re talking about.

"They didn’t know the man. I didn’t know the man."

It comes as his horrified neighbours told how "odd" Fuller never raised his blinds – even in the summer – for the 18 years he lived at his Heathfield, East Sussex, home.

Others said Fuller – who refused to make eye contact – owned numerous CCTV cameras, made constant car journeys in the early hours and was constantly washing his car. 

One neighbour said: “It’s just terrible to find out a man ­capable of these crimes lived in our little road.

“I rarely said more than a few words to him but he was often out washing his car. Now it gives me a chill down my spine — why was he always washing it?

“Was he getting rid of evidence? It’s a horrible image that I can’t get out of my mind. Everyone is friendly round here but he was always the odd one out. 

“We often heard him driving off at 2am or 3am and now we know where he was going. 

“We often heard him driving off at 2am or 3am and now we know where he was going. 

The neighbour added: “He was a bit odd. He wouldn’t talk. But he was just that man who lived there with his wife. The fact he was responsible for the murder of a woman I knew is truly sickening. I’m just appalled.

“He’s worse than a monster, he’s a devil. Pure evil.”

Another neighbour said in the 18 years he lived there, the blinds stayed shut, even in summer.

“Now I know he’s just a sick animal. How could he live there as if everything was normal?

"He had a good life. He was able to get married and have children. But he deprived those two young women of their futures.”


Fuller pleaded guilty on Thursday to murdering Caroline and Wendy Knell, 25, in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

The hospital electrician was arrested last December after a DNA breakthrough ended the 33-year hunt for the “Bedsit Killer”.

Then searches of his home uncovered evidence that Fuller had sex with 100 female corpses over 12 years in the mortuaries at the now-closed Kent and Sussex Hospital and its replacement, Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

He had filmed the unspeakable acts — and horrific images of him defiling bodies aged between nine and 100 were found concealed in a box bedroom he had converted into an office.

And it is feared that countless more corpses were raped by the necrophiliac.

A police helpline has so far received 200 calls from people who believe the bodies of relatives and friends may have been defiled by the monster, the Daily Mail reports.

A police source told The Sun: “The Fuller case is still being worked on by a team of detectives who are trying to track down victims’ families.

“There are fears that his morgue victims could run into the thousands and he could potentially have killed others.

“He is without question one of the most evil men in UK criminal history.”

So far, Kent detectives have formally identified 81 of his victims in the mortuary.
