The Death Of MI6 Spy Dr Gareth Williams In Russia’s Motherland (Photos)

by | 25th, August 2010

DR GARETH Williams, the MI6 worker found dead in a flat in London’s Pimlico was stabbed. His body was stuffed into a sports bag and left in the bathroom. Reports suggest it was in the bath.

The body had been there for days. It was already decomposing when it was found.

As for Gareth Williams…? Well, he earned his doctorate in maths at Cambridge University.

He was staying in a top floor apartment in Alderney Street.

According to Land Registry documents, the building is owned by a company called New Rodina. The company is registered in the British Virgin Islands. Rodina means “motherland” in Russian and Bulgarian, which may be relevant.

Neighbour Laura Houghton says:

“His windows were always shut and curtains were often closed. I could never tell if anyone was in. It was strange that we never saw him come and go. I just assumed he worked away.”

A landlady who rented him a flat in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, where he worked as a communications officer at the GCHQ listening post:

“He was polite and mild-mannered and wouldn’t hurt a fly. He was forever off on bike rides but never really had friends around. Sometimes you could hear tapes whirring from his flat. It must have been audio cassettes he used for work. He never told me what they were.”

Audio cassettes? The war is being waged in analogue? We’re doomed…!
