Lady Di died at the age of 36 when her car crashed under a Paris bridge in August 1997, so Martine Monteil, the head of the Criminal Brigade, acknowledged that the incident is still surrounded by conspiracy theories 25 years later.
The specialist told the Channel 4 documentary, ‘Investigating Diana: Death in Paris‘: “The whole world has had a hard time accepting that the Princess of Wales died in an accident“.
And she affirmed that her work is still unfinished because they have not located the white Fiat Uno that, apparently, collided with the car in which Diana was traveling the night of her death.
She left us 25 years ago today. RIP Lady Di. pic.twitter.com/qCabtIjvH9

“I’m sure it’s out there. Unfortunately we don’t have it. But you already know that the driver of the Fiat Uno is not the real culprit. The responsibility lay with the Mercedes“, said the investigator.
Diana, Dodi Fayed, her boyfriend, and her driver, Henri Paul, were killed immediately by the high-speed impact. Only Trevor Rees-Jones, Dodi’s bodyguard, survived.
Despite the fact that Mohamed Al Fayed stated that British secret agents could have been involved in the death of his son and the princess, a trial jury determined that they died due to the high speed at which they traveled and the consumption of driver alcohol.
