What is it with British spies and weird sex scandals that lead to their downfall? Not that the case of Gareth Williams has yet proven to be such, but that’s the tabloid speculation. This account via the Telegraph:
The maths prodigy was living alone in Cheltenham at the time and had to call for help in the middle of the night to be set free.
His landlady and landlord, who lived below him heard his yells and were met with the “shocking” scene, Westminster Coroners’ Court heard.
It is the first time the incident has been revealed and emerged in a written statement from landlady Jennifer Elliot at the inquest in to Mr Williams, who was found dead in a sports bag in the bath at his London flat in 2010.
The death sparked widespread conspiracy theories including suggestions he had been involved in some kind of sex game that went tragically wrong.
