    Well that's bad news in all sorts of ways. I hope that they're able to find the people responsible & prevent further attacks. This does not bode well for the wikisnots.

    By press accounts he was GCHQ seconded to MI6.

    Given the nature of the crime and the crime-scene by various press accounts, the victim’s personal rather than professional life is the likely focus of the investigators. Should this be the case, and it is not a matter of international and/or intelligence intrigue, I would suggest we not parse over the details on the open part of the forum – if at all.

    My mistake on who the man in question worked for professionally, I thought the article was saying he worked for MI6 directly.

    Given much of what the story discussed, I thought that it bare some significance to the scenes in question. So I figured I might as well had posted it.

    Pardon my cynicism, but no matter what the actual truth is, I doubt that it'll be reported as such in this case. Try getting a straight answer on what happened to Lionel Crabb.

    Good point, and the cynicism is warranted.

    $5 says it was SMERSH.

    Gareth Williams was found dead in a flat rented from a company called New Rodina. Details of the company ownership are hidden because it is registered in the British Virgin Islands and not listed with Companies House.

    Land registry documents show property was bought for £675,250 in 2000 with a mortgage from the Royal Bank of Scotland and remortgaged twice, in September 2005 and February 2006.

    Default Dead Codebreaker Was Linked to NSA Intercept Case

    A strange story, speculation and fact mixed up:
    A top British codebreaker found mysteriously dead last week in his flat had worked with the NSA and British intelligence to intercept e-mail messages that helped convict would-be bombers in the U.K., according to a news report.

    It has been reported that the intelligence services are investigating possible foreign involvement in the death of spy Gareth Williams. * Now concern is said to be growing within the intelligence community that he may have been the victim of a professional hit by a foreign power.
