The children of mortuary rapist David Fuller “did not know the man” who committed such sickening crimes, his ex-wife has said.

Fuller, 67, pleaded guilty to murdering Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, in two separate attacks in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, in 1987.

He also raped more than 100 dead bodies in mortuaries where he was working as an electrician.

His ex-wife Gill Palmer said she had been unable to take in the “horrific” details of the case.

She told The Sun: “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.”

Gemma Keena, Mrs Gill’s daughter from a later relationship after she left Fuller, said her half-brother and half-sister were “numb” and “in such shock”.

She told Mail Online: “They were made aware that he had been accused of the murder of those two young women and that alone was hard enough to deal with.

“But they knew absolutely nothing about those other offences and I think someone could surely have prepared them. It was only when they went down to a pre trial hearing that they learnt about what he’d done in the hospitals.

“What a way to learn something like that. They have been in shock ever since. They also didn’t know the trial was coming to an end and all this would suddenly hit the media, we were on the school run when the news came out.”
