Clearly the flat that he was living in is owned or retained by his 'employer'. The assumption is that that would be MI6, but if he was on an
operational secondment, it is just as likely that could be whoever or whatever he had infiltrated. But given it's proximity to Vauxhall, I would
still work with the primary assumption.
The sim cards appears to me to be staged. I don't think a professional would leave that kind of calling card. It is too obvious. And wouldn't
they be more likely to take the sim cards if they were indicative of his profession or cover having been blown. More along the lines of what someone
might do if they wanted the Police to believe that the murder had been carried out by someone related to his professional life.
I think that the (gutter) press are being fed the 'complicated love life' stuff though. Especially now that the cause of death is now being
rumoured to be suffocation. Death by sexual misadventure would be my guess at the eventual outcome. Though I do not think that that will necessarily
be the truth of the matter.
His former teacher has described him as one of the best brains he has ever encountered, a brilliant mathematician and obsessed with codes and
cyphers...and a loner.
If the body had been dismembered wouldn't that have been mentioned by now. And how it had been dismembered would give a good indication of motive
too. That the body was placed in a hold all would suggest that whoever killed him had intended to conceal the body by disposing of it elsewhere. If
dismembered leakage may have changed their mind about how feasible that would be. Or if a lone killer, i can't imagine there being that many people
that can carry a man in a hold-all, even assuming that the hold-all is able to support that kind of weight. He wasn't a big guy, but fit and
muscular, so even at a minimum you're looking at 10 to 12 stone.
Either way, sorry about the man's death, but it is certainly an intrigue, lots of juxtaposing factors, and of course, as per official policy, we do
not even know for sure that he was working for MI6.
I get the impression from reports though, that it was his Cheltenham colleagues that made the call and not those at Vauxhall. Does anyone know if
that is the case? That would only make sense if he was on operational assignment. But perhaps that is a little wishful supposing on my part. I do
love a good spy story. Though I must reiterate that I am very sorry for the death of this man and sympathise with the family so that I don't come
across as a completely heartless bitch.
