Police Dismiss Claim That Princess Diana was Murdered
“Every reasonable line of enquiry was objectively pursued in order to fully evaluate any potential evidence,” police confirmed in a statement.
“The final conclusion is that whilst there is a possibility the alleged comments in relation to the SAS’s involvement in the deaths may have been made, there is no credible evidence to support a theory that such claims had any basis in fact.”
In August, the in-laws of a disgruntled former Special Air Services soldier sent a 7-page letter to police, stating that the soldier claimed British forces had something to do with Diana’s death.
Ken Wharfe, Diana’s former bodyguard, expressed his frustration over the claim.
“If these parents were so concerned that this information was relevant or had some general import, then they should have delivered it to the inquest,” Wharfe told the Telegraph.
“Why has it taken so long to air this new information? It seems so shallow to me. I just think it’s a bit of a publicity stunt. For what reason I’m not certain, but in the absence of any real evidence, I’m sure this will go away.”
