'Spy in bag' friend attacks police inquiry

Peter Dominiczak | April 6, 2011

A friend of the MI6 codebreaker whose body was found locked in a holdall today attacked the police investigation.

Gareth Williams, 31, was found dead in his Pimlico flat in August last year. Police have said the key to his death lies in his private life and there has been speculation he died in a "bizarre sex game gone wrong". Police revealed that women's clothes were found in the flat and he had visited a drag show.

His friend Sian Lloyd-Jones said the clothes were for her or her sister, adding: "I think it's really important for everything to be investigated, absolutely everything."

She asked why the police failed to mention £10,000 of mountaineering equipment in the flat.
