New Info In Princess Diana's Death?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Almost 16 years after Princess Diana's death, Scotland Yard receives new information about that deadly car crash.

Fox's Brian Llenas has more on the allegations of foul play.

Nearly sixteen years after Princess Diana's death on Aug. 31, 1997, British police have received new information – another conspiracy claiming the Princess of Wales was killed by a member of the British military.

Sky News, Fox News' sister network in Britain, is reporting that Scotland Yard is "assessing the relevance and credibility of new information" from a letter given to them by the former parents in law of a former soldier.

This unnamed soldier believed to have been a member of the elite British Special Airforce Commando Unit.

The letter reportedly claims the soldier boasted the military was behind the death of Diana.

The royal family is not commenting on this latest conspiracy theory.

"This has to be tremendously tough on William and Harry," said Imogen Lloyd Webber, an author and royal expert. "They do have what is known as a smiling hatred of the media, on many levels because of this reason. And also because they do believe that the media helped drive Diana to her death. In saying that, they believe as most reasonable people do, that it was just a tragic accident."

Diana, 36, and her 42-year old boyfriend, Dodi-Fayed, left the Ritz Hotel in Paris, France, on that fateful August night.

Followed by paparazzi, Diana, Fayed and their driver were killed when their Mercedes-Benz hit a pillar in a Paris tunnel.

Investigators concluded the driver's drunk driving caused the accident.

Conspiracy theorists however believe Diana was murdered.

The British tabloids are going crazy but, again, Scotland Yard says this is not a re-investigation into Diana's death, Llenas reported.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
