Dead British spy Garreth Williams 'had no drugs, alcohol in system'

September 7, 2010

SCOTLAND Yard detectives said last night an autopsy has revealed no traces of drugs or alcohol in the body of MI6 spy Garreth Williams.

Police also confirmed no traces of drugs or alcohol were found in the reclusive spy's flat in central London.

Williams, a decoder for the British secret service, was found dead in his flat last month.

His naked body was padlocked in a red North Face holdall and in an empty bath in his en suite bathroom when it was discovered.

Police want to speak with two people who were seen on CCTV footage entering the communal door of Williams' flat in June or late July.

They have also released images of Williams last days, where he was caught on CCTV cameras shopping in London's West End and the exclusive Harrod's department store in Knightsbridge.

An autopsy last month failed to establish a cause of death.

Police said nothing was stolen from the flat and there were no drugs, or indications of drug usage in the flat.

They have appealed for witnesses who may have seen Williams in the weeks leading up to his death.

Detective Chief Inspector Jacqueline Sebire said: "This remains a complex unexplained death inquiry."
