Since her death in 1997, loads of conspiracy theories have surrounded the Paris car crash that was responsible for Princess Diana's death. But a new theory about Diana's death, courtesy of a lawyer/eyewitness, has loads of people scratching their heads -- and with good reason. 


Retired lawyer Stanlee Culbreath was at the scene of Diana's car crash, but chose to stay silent until now out of respect to Prince William and Prince Harry, who were 15 and 12 when their mother was killed. Culbreath claims that he thought the way the situation was handled was strange. "I always thought it was suspicious, that other forces played a hand, but now, 20 years on, I question more than ever whether it was a genuine accident," Culbreath told the Mirror. "I just think it is dubious. If that's the princess, why did it take 20 minutes or so to get to her and, when she was finally released from the car, why did they pass one hospital and take her to another?"

Culbreath, who was visiting Paris from Columbus, Ohio, said that he was unaware that Princess Diana was in the car when he came across the scene, but commented to a friend, "Damn, a junkie on Main Street would get waited on quicker than this." He also added, "There are so many questions I ask myself over and over again about how the accident was handled and if she could have been saved. I pleaded for the police to help, but they were very nonchalant about the entire thing."

Culbreath and friends happened to drive by the accident after a tour of the Eiffel Tower and their driver stopped as part of France's Good Samaritan law. According to Culbreath, though, there didn't seem to be too much of a sense of urgency. "I remember saying to the guys at the time, 'Is there an ambulance coming or something?' as there was no sign of one arriving," Culbreath said. "There was only one cop there I could see who told us to get back. He kept saying, 'Get away, get away.'"

Culbreath also said that, as the windows in the car were dark, he couldn't see who was in the back, but the window "looked like it could be pulled open."

"[The police officer] wasn't doing sh*t. He wasn't doing anything. It was as if those there had decided nothing could be done. It's just my opinion, but it took them a long time to get her out," Culbreath revealed, adding, "It could have been up to 30 minutes before help came. We were there for at least 15 minutes. Why wasn't an ambulance there quicker?"

No doubt, many people have unanswered questions about Diana's death, and this new info will likely reignite people's indignation. Hopefully, for William and Harry's sake though, most have been able to find some sense of closure in a truly horrific situation.
