One of the strangest stories over the last three years has been the case of MI6 spy Gareth Williams being found dead, padlocked in a sports bag in 2010. The incident, which occurred in the bathroom of his Pimlico flat, immediately started a wave of discussion as to whether he had been bumped off in some sort of James Bond style assassination.
Last year a coroner came to the conclusion that Mr Williams, 31, of Anglesey had been unlawfully killed, pretty much confirming that something very untoward had gone on.
Events have moved on however, with the Metropolitan Police today saying that, after an evidence review, it believed it was ”more probable’ that no-one else was present during the incident.
The family still believe that the coroners verdict was correct, and that someone else was involved in the untimely death of Mr Williams.
The police statement has obviously brought about allegations that a successful cover up has taken place, and without sounding like a conspiracy theorist, it does look rather suspect. ‘MI6 spy found in sports bag, coroner says unlawful killing, police disagree’. You could make a film about it.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt stated that he believed it to be ‘”theoretically possible” Mr Williams padlocked himself in the bag, but that “many questions remain unanswered” regarding Mr Williams’ death.
‘Beyond Credibility I have been Misled’
Quite arrogantly he claimed it was “beyond credibility” he had been misled (nothing like thinking you are the best policeman ever) He continued
“I do not believe that I have had the wool pulled over my eyes. I believe that what we are dealing with is a tragic unexplained death”
Mr Hewitt also proclaimed it was a “fallacy” that it had been deep cleaned in a way that only certain DNA had been left on the premises.
OK, lets get down to the nitty gritty. Mr Hewitt is heavily implying that the unfortunate Mr Williams was doing something quite kinky in there. What it is, nobody knows, but the fact his former landlady once found tied to the bed heavily implies that he did like to be restrained.
Now once again, we don’t know this is the case. It is likely it will never be solved. But more and more people are enjoying doing things that once would have been considered strange. Whatever happened though, it should remind everyone that though kinky fun is perfectly enjoyable in the right surroundings, proper safety precautions need to be taken.
The problem with solo kinky sexual activity, is that if it is unsafe, no-one is there to save you. Look at Mick Hutchence from INXS. He asphyxiated whilst masturbating. It happens more often than you would think.
Always try and do kinky sexual things in company, whether it be your partner, or a Dublin escort. It beats the alternative.
Finally, may we wish the family of Mr Williams all the best. No matter what the circumstances of his passing were, and as we said, we don’t know, 31 is far too young an age to pass away. May he rest in peace.
Since then, he has specialised in articles on the battle for equal rights for sex workers, sexual health, as well as bringing the readers fun news from around the world. He also has a major interest in LGBT rights, and is an active campaigner in this field.
When he isn't fighting the good fight, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, and young daughter. He also enjoys reading and taking long walks.
