Spy in the drag
EXCLUSIVE: New claim on MI6 bag death
by ALISON SMITH-SQUIRE | September 20, 2015
THE MI6 spy whose body was found in a bag worked undercover as a woman, an expert claims.
It would explain why Gareth Williams, 31, had £20,000 worth of ladies’ designer clothes and shoes and a red wig at his home.
The theory also answers why his neighbours saw only a woman coming and going to his flat.
Forensic investigator Peter Faulding, who has probed the mystery death, said: “The key question never asked was, ‘Were these clothes used for his job?’. I am certain they were.”
Peter claims the expensive items were bought by Williams’ bosses.
He added: “I’m certain he made a very convincing female. He was slim, with feminine features. And as a cyclist he shaved his legs.”
It has been suspected the clothes were part of a secret lifestyle.
Gareth was found naked in a locked bag at his flat in Pimlico, central London, in 2010. An inquest ruled he was probably killed unlawfully.
