British police are investigating Diana's death again

British police are investigating Diana's death again
Maria Puente, USA TODAY 10:52 a.m. EDT August 18, 2013
What more is there to investigate about the death of Princess Diana? British police aren't saying, but they're re-examining the 1997 car crash.

British police announced Saturday they are again investigating Princess Diana's death.

British media and the Associated Press reported that Scotland Yard is examining the "relevance and credibility" of newly received information relating to the deaths of Diana and her companion, Dodi Fayed, who also was killed, along with their driver, in a car crash in a Paris traffic tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997.

In a statement Scotland Yard said that the assessment will be carried out by officers from its specialist crime and operations unit.

Palace press officials representing Diana's sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, declined to comment.

The Telegraph reported that the new information alleges that Diana was "murdered" by a member of the British military, and that the allegation came to the Yard from the Royal Military Police, who in turn got it from the in-laws of a former soldier.

CRYPTOGON: Belgium Exxon-Mobil Manager Shot Dead

Belgium: Exxon-Mobil Manager Shot Dead

October 16th, 2012
Update: Better Translation

Cryptogon reader D has submitted a better English translation of the story:

Sunday night a top executive of the petro-chemical company ExxonMobil was shot dead in the street in Neder-over-Heembeek, near Brussels. Nicholas Mockford was shot in the head twice, when he and his wife were leaving an Italian restaurant around 22h. Witnesses saw two men running away carrying a motorcycle helmet.

The man died on the way to the hospital. His wife Mary was beaten and covered in blood. Police and DA’s office are saying that at this point they aren't excluding any possibilities, from a hit to a carjacking gone wrong. Although the violence used appears to be disproportionate for a carjacking, especially knowing that the killers left the Lexus ATV behind.

Investigators are doing everything they can to locate the perpetrators. They are going through his work at his firm in the hope of finding a clue. ExxonMobil is the company that owns Esso, Mobil and Exxon gas stations.

There’s nothing in English on this yet. All I have is the badly machine translated article from linked below.

Searching around, I found a 2010 tradeshow reference to a Nicholas P. Mockford, Marketing Technical Support Manager, Intermediates Technology, ExxonMobil Chemical Europe Inc.
