MI6 dirty secrets.. why do sex games appear to feature in so many spy deaths?
Date published: 19th July 2013
Codebreaker Gareth, from Anglesey, North Wales, was found dead in a locked bag, in a flat full of women’s clothing and wigs, and with his internet browsing history conveniently featuring bondage sites, sparking a flurry of allegations which shocked and horrified his parents.
But the fact the 31-year-old’s death scene was organised in such a way as to suggest a sex game gone wrong should make us more suspicious not less.
The sex game cover is a very useful mechanism in a murder. Not only does it provide a disguise for the actual means and method of death, it also trashes the reputation of the victim and blunts the energy of any subsequent investigation.
And it appears to explain the astonishing number of spies, and other people who step into their murky world, who turn up dead in circumstances similar to Gareth.
