DETECTIVES investigating the death of “spy in the bag” Gareth Williams are hoping to identify 60 fingerprints taken from his flat.
Officers are trying to get the dabs of fellow spies who stayed in the £1million MI6 safehouse so they can be eliminated from the probe.
The naked body of code-breaker Williams, 31, was found in a padlocked holdall in a bath in August. Prints are also being taken from his friends and family.
A source said: “It is one of the last throws of the dice.”
Cops face being kicked out of the flat in Pimlico, London, as it has been a potential crime scene for six months.
The source added: “The landlord is well within his rights to kick us out.”
