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.
