MI6 codebreaker Gareth Williams was probably killed but the "spy in the bag" case might never be solved after mistakes by investigators, an inquest heard.
Mr Williams's relatives attacked failures by secret services & police after a coroner ruled "many agencies fell short" in their investigation.
Fiona Wilcox said she was sure a third party locked the 31-year-old mathematics prodigy inside the red holdall, probably while he was still alive.
She criticised the 21-month investigation, saying it was unlikely the mystery "will ever be satisfactorily explained".
"The cause of his death was unnatural and likely to have been criminally mediated," she said during a two-hour narrative verdict at Mr Williams's inquest.
"I am therefore satisfied that on the balance of probabilities that Gareth was killed unlawfully."
The Metropolitan Police's Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt said they are trying to "trace unidentified DNA" to understand what happened to Gareth Williams.
He added that the case "remains a current investigation".
The family of MI6 spy Gareth Williams have hit out at the failures of MI6 to raise the alarm after the spy went missing, saying their "grief is exacerbated" by it.
In a statement read out by their solicitor after the inquest into his death concluded, they said they were "extremely disappointed" at the secret services' "reluctance and failure" to make relevant information available to the death inquiry.
They also attacked the "total inadequacies" of the inquiry by Metropolitan Police counter-terror branch SO15 into MI6 and called on Scotland Yard's chief to look into how the investigation would proceed in light of this.
