THE INQUEST INTO the death MI6 employee Gareth Williams was told that the chief inspector of the investigation believes a third party was involved in his death.
BBC reports that Det Ch Insp Jackie Sebire was of the opinion after viewing the crime scene that a third party was involved in the death or with putting his body into the red holdall in which it was found.
Harriet Tolputt, who is covering the case for Sky News, said today that the coroner ruled video of the crime scene can be released to the media.
She reported that Sian Jones, a friend of Williams’, said that expensive women’s clothing found in his home would have fitted her – but they looked too small for Gareth. She said that a wig found his home was for a fancy-dress party he was due to attend, and that if he had been a transvestite he would have felt he could tell her.
The inquest was told that DNA fragments were found on the bag which held Williams’ body, Sky News reports.
Williams’ body was found in the bag in the bath of his London home on 23 August 2010. It was naked and decomposing. It is not thought he attempted to get out of the bag.
Yesterday, Williams’ sister told the inquest that her brother was unhappy with the “rat race” in London and had requested to be sent back to GCHQ’s headquarters in Gloucestershire.
