Hay más, este tipo andaba en un montón de berenjenales, todos de muchísima importancia y de última tecnología (conviene leer y traducir el artículo), lo que lo pondrían en el punto de mira de servicios de inteligencia extranjeros, y, esta es mi opinión, al frente de una posible venganza por venta de secretos oficiales a una potencia extranjera.
MI6 spy's death was 'unlikely to have been due to his work'
Gareth Williams's intelligence work was low-risk, says MI6 officer, who apologises to family over delay in reporting him missing

The family of the MI6 officer found dead in a padlocked bag in his bath walked out of the inquest into his death on Thursday as they were told no one had been disciplined over delays in reporting him missing.
The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, also known as MI6) offered a "profound apology" for not reporting Gareth Williams, 31, missing until seven days after he failed to turn up for work.
The inquest was briefly halted while Williams's family composed themselves. They returned after the adjournment.
A senior officer, known only as F and representing MI6, told Westminster coroners court that an SIS internal review had found no link between Williams's intelligence work and his death.
She said SIS did discover a small number of searches made by Williams on its database that appeared to be unauthorised, and which might have allowed someone to "theoretically put some pressure on Gareth".
"However, it is very theoretical. And it appears there is less to this than meets the eye. There is no evidence that these actions have come to the attention of a third party, let alone a hostile or malign third party."
There was no reason to think foreign intelligence services or security organisations represented a threat to Williams, she added. MI6's security assessment was that he was "low risk" and his work had never taken him to Russia or Afghanistan, contrary to media speculation, the inquest heard. He had been on operational deployment only in the UK.
Williams's mother, Ellen, broke down and had to be led from the courtroom as F admitted the line manager responsible for not reporting Williams missing had not faced any disciplinary action.
The naked, decomposing body of the codes and cipher expert, on secondment to MI6 from GCHQ, was found in his top-floor flat in Pimlico, south London, on 23 August 2010. Police remain baffled by the circumstances of his death.
The delay in finding Williams had had "horrendous" consequences, Anthony O'Toole, lawyer for the family, said. The agency had shown "a total disregard for Gareth's whereabouts and safety".
His family had been deprived of "saying goodbye to him" because of the decomposition of his body, he said. The decomposition also meant "any forensic evidence that could have been derived from it has disappeared so the police investigation is, in essence, almost defeated".
Giving evidence from behind a screen, F said: "We are profoundly sorry about what happened. It shouldn't have happened. We recognise that the delay has made it even harder for the family to come to terms with Gareth's death.
"I also appreciate the delay had some impact on the police investigation."
Williams, whose job was "developing practical applications for emerging technologies", was described as a "fully deployable, highly talented officer". Contrary to media reports, the flat he was living in was "not an SIS safe house", said F, who understood it had been rented through his employers at GCHQ.
SIS did not carry out an independent internal investigation into his death. But 12 months later, it conducted a "comprehensive internal review". "It confirmed we had no evidence of any specific threat to Gareth arising out of his activities, arising out of his work for SIS," said F. "It concluded here was no reason to think his death was in any way connected with his work."
Williams's job was to "think up and design technology" to support other operators. "He had a highly skilled, very able technical brain. Everyone in SIS found him a very pleasant individual, a good colleague, respected for his talents." But he was an intensely private individual, said F, adding that Williams did not socialise with colleagues out of work. "He liked to keep his work life very separate from the rest of his life."
The hearing continues.
