An inquest into the death of Diana over a decade earlier that she had been "unlawfully killed".[1][2] In USA, the FBI quietly wrapped up its $100M cover-up operation of the 2001 Anthrax attacks, officially naming the just deceased Bruce Ivins as the "lone nut" perpetrator. In 2015 Richard Lambert, the chief FBI investigator in the case, launched legal action against the FBI, alleging legal malpractice.[3][4]
