Pair Accused Of Cling Film ‘Sex Game’ Killing

A man died during a sex game after being wrapped in black plastic sheeting and cling film, a jury has heard.

Alun Williams, 47, was unable to regulate his body temperature and suffered dehydration which led to a heart attack, Canterbury Crown Court was told.

Mr Williams, a head chef for P&O Ferries, who lived with his girlfriend, had an interest in bondage and mummification and would meet men online for sex, the trial heard.

Richard Bowler, 35, and David Connor, 23, from Canterbury, are charged with Mr Williams’ manslaughter, which they both deny.

They also deny an alternative charge of manslaughter by gross negligence.

Bowler, who has cerebral palsy, wept loudly as prosecutor Ian Hope opened the case and had to be asked by Judge Adele Williams to keep the noise down.

He said Bowler and Connor lived together in a flat in Dover, Kent, with Connor acting as Bowler’s “informal carer”.

The court heard Bowler had phoned his brother and texted his sister-in-law for help, before calling the police shortly before 6am on 20 August last year.

He told them he had been involved in a “kinky sex session” with a friend who was wrapped up and had stopped breathing.

He was put through to the ambulance service and told them Mr Williams had taken the drug ketamine.

Mr Hope said Bowler cut open the cling film and plastic sheeting to perform CPR and told the emergency services: “I thought he was just sleeping.

“I am sorry, I should have called before.

“He takes ketamine and that mongs him out.”

The court heard that Mr Williams was found wrapped tightly from head to toe, with a space left around his nose and mouth so he could breathe.

A hood had been placed over his head, allegedly at Mr Williams’ request, and sexual acts involving the three men took place, the court was told.

Connor told the police that he had left the flat at midnight after Bowler told him he had a man coming round for a kinky sex session, the court heard.

He said he returned at 1am and that Bowler told him that Mr Williams had wanted to be wrapped in cling film, the jury was told.

A laptop found in Mr Williams’ car showed he had an interest in bondage and mummification, the trial heard.

A post-mortem examination on Mr Williams’ body confirmed that he had died suddenly following body wrapping while under the influence of ketamine and methamphetamine.
