The bag in which a British MI6 agent’s corpse was found in his London home in 2010 had small bits of unknown DNA, fuelling speculation about who may have been behind the mysterious death.
Jackie Sebire, the detective handling the case, said police found blood believed to be that of Williams as well as “small components of another contributor’s DNA”. One of the central questions of the case, she said, was whether Williams could have placed himself in the bag and locked the padlock or whether someone else was responsible. She said her opinion was that a third party was involved.
The bag in which Williams was found showed no signs of a struggle, such as torn netting or stitches and keys that could have opened the padlock were found inside the bag, underneath his buttock.
Inside Williams’s flat at the time of his death were about 20,000 pounds in women’s clothing, a woman’s wig and new makeup. Williams was on a three-year secondment from GCHQ to MI6 at the time of his death.
