Police search 'Bedsit killer' David fuller's home as he admits 1987 murders

A former hospital electrician who sexually assaulted corpses in mortuaries where he worked has pleaded guilty to the murders of two women in 1987.

David Fuller, 67, a married father from Heathfield, East Sussex, admitted murdering Wendy Knell, 20, and 25-year-old Caroline Pierce five months apart in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, more than 30 years ago.

Fuller had previously admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility, but had denied murder.

But on Thursday during the fourth day of his trial at Maidstone Crown Court, he changed his plea and admitted the murders.

He had been linked to the deaths following a breakthrough in DNA techniques.
