The Scotland Yard said Diana was not killed by the SAS -- because there is "no evidence" to support such claims. On Dec. 16, Mail Online reported that the Metropolitan Police have completed their investigation and have concluded that the British special forces did not plan Princess Diana's death.
Speculation that Princess Diana's death was not an accident has been discussed and investigated for years. Some believed that an SAS squad flashed a blinding light at Diana’s driver causing him to lose control of the Mercedes limousine. Diana was killed in the crash in 1997, but everything wasn't so cut and dry for some people.
Scotland Yard investigated Diana's death for a short period of time after these specific claims were made. However, they do feel as though their investigation was thorough, primarily because they didn't have any evidence to support a such a serious accusation.
"Having reviewed relevant records and taken accounts from principal parties, the conclusion the investigative team has reached is that, 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," Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, Specialist Crime and Operations said.
Scotland Yard may be done with Diana and this investigation involving her death but there are still skeptics out there. While speed and alcohol were the causes of the crash "officially," many believe that there was some level of "funny business" going on and those people may spend their whole lives trying to prove it.
