Gareth Williams, the MI6 spy whose body was found in a bag , was murdered by Russian hitmen who blackmailed him with compromising sexual photographs, according to a former KGB major. The former major and intelligence officer Boris Karpichkov, who was exiled from Russia and now lives in the UK with a new identity, claimed Mr Williams was given a lethal injection in the ear and put into the holdall by Russian operatives. Mr Williams' naked, decomposing body was found in the bath of his flat in Pimlico, London, in August , after colleagues noticed he had not turned up for work. The locked handles of the holdall had been fastened with Velcro and there was no sign of him struggling to escape. No finger, foot, palm prints or DNA belonging to Mr Williams were found on the rim of the bath, padlock or zipper and he was not wearing any gloves. The key to the padlock was underneath his body, which was curled into a foetal position inside the bag, and the heating in the flat had been turned up, even though it was the middle of the summer.

The flat-bottomed brown paper bags we encounter constantly—in the lunch context, at grocery stores, in gift shops—are as unassuming as they are ubiquitous, but the story underlying them deserves recognition.
