New Info In Princess Diana's Death?

Posted: Updated:

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.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
