1) THE INQUEST BEGINS into the wonderfully inventive death of MI6/GCHQ 'hacker' aka coding genius and health nut Gareth Williams ... what was he doing for the NSA (to which he was 'loaned' before his death) and who did he piss off to receive such TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT as being dissolved to death (so I've heard) with potassium perchlorate while padlocked inside a NORTH FACE hold all like the one pictured.
The case has left family members fearing "some agency specialising in the dark arts" will leave them with no way of knowing how and why he died.
Scotland Yard has not been able to conclude whether he died at the hands of a third party or not.
Relatives believe someone was either present when he died or broke into his home afterwards to destroy the evidence. [source SKYNEWS]
There's a LIVE BLOG page reporting on the revelations (not many are being authorised) about this inquest for reasons of National Security.
2) Iraq weapons inspector turned whistleblower, Dr David Kelly (you remember him, right) who was found dead in an Oxfordshire woods ... I've only just heard the terrible news that one of his friends at Porton Down, Dr Richard Holmes, also recently 'went out for a walk' just before he also killed himself.
A weapons expert who worked with Dr David Kelly at the Government’s secret chemical warfare laboratory has been found dead in an apparent suicide.
In circumstances strongly reminiscent of Dr Kelly’s own mysterious death nine years ago, the body of Dr Richard Holmes was discovered in a field four miles from the Porton Down defence establishment in Wiltshire. It is not yet known how he died.
Mr Holmes, 48, had gone missing two days earlier after telling his wife he was going out for a walk – just as Dr Kelly did before he was found dead at an Oxfordshire beauty spot in July 2003. [source DAILY MAIL]
Too many suspicious deaths on this sick 'need to know' planet - it's time we TOTALLY CLEANED UP the mess that is known as Corporate War for profit and asset. The GAME has to be chaaanged, for the sake of all empathic existence on Free Planet.
WEEK LATER UPDATE: as the Gareth Williams inquest heads into a second week, expect more sexual revelations to mar what should be a MURDER INVESTIGATION. Here's an investigation from The Independent that highlights the mysterious cases of murders where female underwear or asphyxiation (or both) have been the glaring claxon calls blaring throughout.
The IoS has come across at least 17 mysterious deaths – some dubbed suicides, others freak accidents – of MI6 agents, workers at GCHQ, or those linked to the defence or intelligence services over the past 50 years. Sexual overtones, asphyxia, or both, feature in a third of cases, and they are just the ones that are in the public domain and "open source", as spooks would say. [source INDEPENDENT]
It's like (wow) are GCHQ/MI6/intelligence workers regularly vetted for known sexual-entrapment possibilities or are Gareth's killers 'just was very good at wiping their identity from a premises' or ... anyway, looking very much like this MURDER VICTIM math-genius and trainee-spook Gareth Williams was potentially placed in the North Face sports bag elsewhere and dumped in the bath chez lui, post mortem (possibly from within a second bag which was (likely to have been) removed from the premises). Who really knows. Oh, someone really knows. :)
