British police announced today that a spy whose naked, decomposing body was found inside a padlocked gym bag in the bathtub of his apartment “likely died in an accident with no one else involved.” Erm, OK. A SPY. Was found DEAD. INSIDE a gym bag. That was padlocked. Whatevs. Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt told reporters at Scotland yard that the death of Gareth Williams was “most probably” an accident.
Police concluded that it could have been possible for Williams to climb inside the sports bag and lock it and there was no evidence that the apartment had been cleaned to remove forensic traces and nothing to suggest a struggle or a break-in.
He also dismissed the idea that Britain’s secret intelligence services had carried out a cover-up.
Says HuffPo: “Some have raised the possibility that Williams locked himself in the bag as part of a sex game gone wrong. Investigators found that he had visited bondage and sadomasochism websites, including some related to claustrophilia — a desire for confinement in enclosed spaces.”
