(Newser) – The murder case of a code-cracking British spy gets kinkier and kinkier. Police are now seeking possible sex bondage partners of Gareth Williams, who was found suffocated in a padlocked canvas bag in his apartment last year. There was no sign of forced entry, a struggle, or that he had been drugged. He was a frequent peruser of bondage web sites and a drag club visitor. Investigators theorize that he may have been killed by a partner in a sex game accident. His closet was packed with some $22,000 worth of women's designer clothes, shoes and wigs.

Police initially assumed Williams' death was tied to his secret work, but a detectives said investigators have now concluded: "This is not linked to his work—it's his private life." Investigators have been hesitant to reveal details of Williams' sex life, knowing it would likely upset his family—but are going forward because doing so could help solve his murder. They're particularly eager to quiz a young couple spotted at Williams apartment before his death, reports the Guardian.
