David Fuller jailed for life after 'abusing 102 bodies in morgues aged 9 to 100.

A terrible story but what does the age of the morgue have to do with it?

Should he have been jailed for death? I rue the morgue allowing him entry.

I didn't know morgues kept bodies that long?

It's just a poorly-worded headline. The victims ranged in age from 9 to 100. It has nothing to do with the ages of the morgues.
Here's the article:
David Fuller: bed killer jailed for life after “abusing 102 bodies” in morgues aged 9 to 100
I didn't read the whole article because it was so disgusting. I did note one sentence in it because of the euphemism it used: "David Fuller will never be free again after killing two women in 1987 and looting the bodies of at least 102 women and girls between the ages of nine and 100 in morgues." Emphasis mine.

I am of course aware of that. My comment was meant to point out that it was poorly worded.

Tinman, did you think Bob really read it that way?

What a terribly worded headline. Why do they get away with things like this? Don't they have editors?
