'Almost a quarter of a century may have passed, but the bizarre and outwardly tawdry nature of Stephen Milligan’s death has lost little of its ability to shock.
The 45-year-old MP, a rising star of John Major’s Conservative party, was found lying on a kitchen table in his terraced home near the River Thames in Chiswick on the afternoon of Monday, February 7, 1994.
His body was naked, save for a pair of women’s stockings and suspenders, plus a black bin-liner over his head. Around his neck was a length of electrical flex, which had apparently been used to strangle him.
His mouth meanwhile contained a single segment of orange.
A post-mortem examination soon found that Milligan had died of suffocation caused by pressure from the ligature around his neck, most likely in the early hours of Sunday morning.
n the ensuing media circus, detectives quickly took the view that the MP, a bachelor, had suffered a fatal accident while carrying out a solo sex act.
Specifically, they believed he’d been indulging in ‘auto-erotic asphyxiation’ — the highly-unconventional practice of seeking to increase sexual excitement by restricting the supply of blood to the brain.
A hastily-convened inquest, which opened the following week, reached a similar conclusion: West London Coroner, Dr John Burton, found no evidence to suggest that the Eastleigh MP had been murdered or committed suicide, instead recording an official verdict of ‘death by misadventure’.
To devastated friends and colleagues, the whole thing quite understandably came as a terrible bolt from the blue.'
