CIA probes British spy murder as he was sent on frequent missions to Pentagon’s high-security post

CIA probes British spy murder as it emerges he was sent on frequent missions to Pentagon’s high-security listening post By CHARLOTTE GILL, EMILY ANDREWS and LIZ HULL Last updated at 9:01 AM on 27th August 2010

The CIA was called in to help investigate the murder of an MI6 spy last night as it emerged he was sent on frequent secret missions to the United States. American intelligence officers are poring over every detail of Gareth Williams’s work and personal life to see if the circumstances of his death endangered U.S. national security. The Daily Mail can reveal that the 31-year-old codebreaker flew to the National Security Agency, the Pentagon’s listening post and the largest intelligence agency in the world, up to four times a year. He returned from his last trip to America only a few weeks before he was found dead. Questions also remain over why his body lay undiscovered for up to a fortnight at his£400,000 flat in a Victorian townhouse in Pimlico, central London, half a mile from MI6 headquarters. Mr Williams worked at the Government’s listening post, GCHQ in Cheltenham, but had been on secondment to MI6 for the past year and was due to return to GCHQ next Friday.
