Dublin, Eire - Any link to a deceased British code breaker is of course extremely tenuous Gardai sources admitted today.
The discovery of a woman's body stuffed inside a large wheeled travel bag in St David's Terrace, Blackhorse Avenue, Dublin 7 has shocked locals.
Speculative connections to deceased MI6 cryptographer Dr Gareth Williams - found trussed up naked inside a North Face holdall in August 2010 - are being dismissed, however.
"This is a wheelie bag, begorrah, not some sort of FedEx-ready air freight luggage," a witness outside The Shergar pub told TV reporters at lunchtime.
The street where the body was found is home to Dublin's famous Hole in the Wall bar/restaurant where classic pub grub dishes include Toad in the Hole and Stuffed Goose.
"WTF's this got to do with it?" one regular who did now want to be named commented this afternoon.
