London - (The Spy Who Bagged Me News): Was the MI6 cryptographer a cross-dressing aficionado or a sinister target in a spooks' internal feud?
Red Top reports this weekend say a multicolored rainbow wig was found stuffed inside the padlocked holdall containing Gareth Williams' body.
Speculation that Williams was a transvestite was dismissed today as police waited for DNA tests on the wig from the UK National Poisons Unit.
"Has an unknown assailant or witness left us that 'smoking gun' clue by cramming that wig inside the holdall?" a police spokesperson commented today.
"Frankly, we haven't the foggiest just yet. But rest assured is there's so much as a smidgen of non-Williams dandruff, sweat or other DNA-carrying material on the hairpiece we'll be onto it, pronto."
Stories linking the holdall body to a reported arrest in the 1999 Fatima Kama suitcase murder have been rejected.
No known instances of Kama - or her alleged Kuwaiti air steward assailant arrested last week - ever wearing 'a rainbow wig' exist on file.
Williams' postmortem results are expected tomorrow.
