Detectives of Scotland Yard will be examining these new details to see if a new investigation should be launched, though a spokesperson says they are not reopening the case at this time: "The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths and assessing its relevance and credibility. The assessment will be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command."
