Scotland Yard Diana: Hidden information on Princess Diana death, not 'murder'

A Scotland Yard investigation into Princess Diana’s tragic death in a car accident recently reviewed new, hidden information following the 1997 passing of the royal lady of Wales, but no evidence of credible value was found hinting toward her being murdered. While there has been speculation in the past — that continues to this day — that Princess Diana did not die simply by accident, Scotland Yard has affirmed that to their knowledge, the sad case was not a homicide. UK News shares the details on this recently finished examination this Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.

As stated by Scotland Yard and law enforcement detectives back in August, police officials would be looking into the possible credibility of “hidden information” that had recently been brought to their attention on the 1997 deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, her boyfriend at the time. One of these allegations was that Diana was in fact murdered by a prominent British military individual, though these reports remain completely unsubstantiated.

"The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) undertook a scoping exercise to assess the relevance and credibility of that information," the force said in a statement issued Monday. "That scoping exercise is now complete.”

Diana and Fayed, add Scotland Yard in their report probe, are still found to have died by accident in an underpass in Paris on Aug. 31, 1997, with their driver also being killed in the fatal crash.

According to the allegations, an elite British army member from the Special Air Services (SAS) had actually gotten involved and contributed to the death of Princess Diana, as given by past alerts on the tragedy. This and possible murder claims were said to be looked into by Scotland Yard under this “hidden information;” Sky News, which has since obtained a copy of the letter, reported that the investigation found "no credible evidence" that the SAS was at all involved in the deaths.

Notes the report:

"Whilst there is a possibility that the alleged comments in relation to the SAS's involvement in the death may have been made, there is no credible or relevant evidence to support a theory that such claims had any basis in fact," the network reported the letter as saying. "Having reviewed the exercise and its findings, I am satisfied that there is no evidential basis upon which therefore to reopen any criminal homicide investigation or refer the matter back to the coroner.”
