Rattled: Intel community reacts to sudden death

Body of computer expert found inside locked case in apartment

September 7, 2010

Whether Gareth Williams was at the wrong place at the wrong time or he was targeted by a network of foreign interests who wanted him out of their way, the government employee's death is raising alarms in the United Kingdom, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

That's primarily because of his job on the cutting edge of computer technology at the Government Communications Headquarters, a sprawling organization with its fingers in dozens, perhaps hundreds, of stealth projects.

The investigation after Williams' body was found in a large locked sports bag in the bathroom of his apartment has been unprecedented, with MI6, MI5 and Scotland Yard's murder squad on the case.

The cause of his death hasn't been confirmed, but sources report poison, shooting and knifing largely have been eliminated. The Russian SVR and the Chinese Secret Intelligence Service remain in the circle of suspicion. Some reports allege he was a double agent, and there is speculation he was killed because he refused to cooperate with foreign interests.

Staff members at GCHQ, where doors simply are marked "No Admission," have been left stunned.

Williams worked in computer technology, using his mathematical abilities in the fight against terrorism and cyber warfare. He had come into the service of his country after finishing at Cambridge.
