MI6 spy may have died in sex game gone wrong

Police investigating the bizarre death of British spy Gareth Williams believe he may have died during a sex game gone wrong.
In a police re-enactment, a female officer climbed into the bag where Williams' naked body was found, the Mail on Sunday newspaper reports.
The officer managed to zip up the bag and padlock it from inside, leading to speculation Williams had done the same thing and suffocated when he could not unlock himself.
Fuelling the theory is the fact police found a key to the padlock inside the bag alongside Williams’ body.
Williams, 31, worked for the secret intelligence service MI6 and his naked remains were found in the bag in his bathtub in his London flat on August 23.
There was no evidence of violence or cuts on his body, suggesting a struggle had not taken place, and there were no signs of forced entry at his Pimlico flat.
He was working with MI6 on secondment from GCHQ, which monitors communications for intelligence purposes and is based in Cheltenham, west England.
A spokesman from Scotland Yard declined to comment on the report, but said they were keeping an open mind about the case.
