I was 12 years old attending school at Graf Zeppelin Gymnasium in Friedrichshaffen (West) Germany at the time of Natalie Wood's untimely and mysterious death. I didn't know who she was, but I remember hearing about the incident. Years later I began to appreciate what a beautiful and talented actress she was. I recently watched her last movie, Brainstorm, in which she co-starred with one of my all time favorite actors, Christopher Walken. Walken, just so happened to be on the boat at the time of the "accident". I'm not sure if anyone will ever be held accountable for her death, but the following article seems to indicate that might be a possibility, and are looking for answers from actor Robert Wagner.

SOURCE


Actor Robert Wagner is now considered a “person of interest” in the drowning death of actress Natalie Wood more than 36 years ago, according to a new report. Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials want to interview Wagner, 87, again about the circumstances surrounding Wood’s mysterious death in November 1981, investigators told CBS’s “48 Hours.”



The 43-year-old Hollywood starlet was on her family’s yacht — named the Splendour — off Catalina Island in California on Thanksgiving weekend with her husband, Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and Capt. Dennis Davern before she somehow ended up in the water and drowned. Wood’s death was initially ruled an accident, but her death certificate was amended in 2012 to change her cause of death from drowning to “drowning and other undetermined factors,” adding yet another layer to one of Tinsel Town’s most enduring mysteries. “As we’ve investigated the case over the last six years, I think he’s more of a person of interest now,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina told CBS News of Wagner. “I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared.” The original detective assigned to the case, as well as Wagner and Walken, have all repeatedly said that they considered Wood’s death an accident, but the witnesses’ accounts have changed over time — a problematic aspect, according to Corina.


Of course, witnesses accounts will change even over a short amount of time. Perhaps, Wagner will decide it is time to tell the entire story (if there is more to it) before he leaves this mortal plane.

Christopher Walken at some time after was also considered a person of interest. A case like that, has little in the way tangible evidence. I forget what the inquest said of Natalie Woods remains at the time.

When I saw this headline my first thought was "Oh, now it's okay to look again at Robert Wagner".

There was recent story a few months ago and I recall wondering how they did not pursue this more diligently at the time. Too much pointed at himel Well, of course, it wasn't okay to go after a star.

The environment has changed.

I always suspected he had something to do with her death. If he did I hope they get him now. Better late than never.

The captain of the boat they were on stated that the 2 of them had been having a heated argument all afternoon and everything suddenly went silent just before she went missing.

Huh. I didn’t know Robert Wagner was even still alive. Isn’t he in his 80’s now?

...she somehow ended up in the water and drowned.

She was found in-between the dock and boat where it was docked. Wet, slippery surfaces abound. The 'other factors' might have been in the toxicology report about substances in her system.

I.e., she was drunk and slipped while trying to get on or off the boat.

Poor girl. nobody saw her slip and fall, hitting her head and falling in the water.

"He is a person of interest, because he was the last one with Natalie Wood. And somehow she ends up in the water and drowns," said Corina, a lieutenant in the sheriff's homicide bureau. Wagner, he said, has refused to talk to investigators. The original story that's been to, that Wood took a dingy into town and fell into the water, doesn't add up, Corina said. There was a rainstorm and rough waters the night Wood disappeared. She was one of four people on a large boat when she went into the water, but detectives believe Wagner was alone with her in one part of the vessel, Corina said. "Some of the things we found that [Wagner] did afterwards, or didn't do, in the boat, cause us to say, 'This doesn't make any sense,'" Corina said. "We're at the end of the investigation. We're at a standstill, so we thought we'd give it one more shot to the public." It's far from clear whether his comments reflected a significant change in the case. The department has long questioned aspects of Wagner's story.

No, she was found a mile from the boat and a small dingy was recovered nearby. It could have been a number of things including her alcohol consumption. Being as she had taken an anti sickness medicine and a painkiller (both found in her bloodstream) both could have made the alcohol affects worse. That was found in the autopsy.
Now here's a nice one to consider, in 2013 an LA coroner's office admitted she was also taking Synthroid (which can lead to heart palpitations). Why wasn't that mentioned in the original autopsy report?

Money and celebrity status is usually ruled under a different and lenient justice system. I'm sure Wagner fell into that category.

Exactly, what a tragic end for her, really deserves closure if it was foul play.Due to his age, time passed perhaps and as you mention, doubting it would happen now.

She also had 'bruisers' on her according to this:

Everything I'm about to say is alleged.

Not proven.. I want to make that clear..


So allegedly her first marriage to Wagner ended when she found him in bed with another man.
Allegedly she was shocked and mortified and the divorce was the result..

Cut to years later and they rekindle the romance and get married again.

She was co-starring with Christopher walken in a film and there were rumors of an onset affair.

Now Allegedly the surface story At The time was the fight on board the yacht broke out because Robert found her and walken having that affair..

But the people in the know think ;

Again allegedly, that she found Robert and Christopher in bed together..and it sparked a huge fight.. Allegedly another boat nearby had passengers who heard the screaming ...sound travels well over water...

Her cabin on the yacht was said to be in shambles from an obvious struggle..

Also supposedly, an earing was found that allegedly still had some of her flesh attached in the room..

Also allegedly the captain of the boat was told to keep sailing even an hour after they discovered she was missing..


The Natalie wood story is fascinating, her life was a roller coaster of success and scandal.

Rip Natalie.

Wagner’s lawyer, Blair Berk, has said the actor has 'fully cooperated' with police and has vehemently denied any wrongdoing. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... ircumstances-California.html#ixzz55tzony7l Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook


I am not sure why Natalie Wood's sister would confront him? Is there something going on there?

Christopher Walken was on board as well, rt? Menage a trois was a thing then.. Also the alcohol and her pills on board.

Only one who really has any idea is the captain. He's commented before.. Search it out....

It was a different time yes, and Natalie was allegedly known to be a very sexual being..

But in my opinion, I don't think she was into watching two men together, she was the type, again in my opinion, who wants the person she is with to be "hers"..

Robert was allegedly a bisexual, and also was said to be a very possessive person.

Again this is all my opinion but I don't think either one of them was capable of sharing there lover in the same bed with a third party...

That's not to say there wasn't cheating..just not sharing..

Now again all my conjecture here..

I think Natalie did have a brief affair with walken on set. And wallken being a bit of an eccentric doesn't seem to mind floating around ..not a very possessive person..

Allegedly.

Robert most likely knewof the affair , maybe had not told Natalie that he knew or had the discussion.. but it would be in his character to passive aggressively invite walken on the boat trip just to watch Nat squirm..

Allegedly.

Then after many drinks, followed by many more at the restaurant, the trio made made there way to the boat..

Allegedly.

Robert a bisexual who was a very dominating personality "seduces" walken while Natalie is in her cabin. I use that seduce term loosely...it's hard to seduce the eager....

Allegedly.

So Robert knowing full well what he is doing is happier than a clam when Natalie walks in and finds them..it's his revenge for the public humiliation he suffered from the rumors of her affair..

Allegedly.

His smile quickly turned to anger when she flipped out , like she did the first marriage, but instead of keeping it quiet ..threatened to go public...

Allegedly.

Walken was a guilty bystander..he didn't kill her but knew her spilling the beans would be the end of his career was perfectly willing to let Robert do so and stay quiet about it..

Allegedly.

Natalie retreats to her cabin after the screaming match...Robert follows... and they have a serious altercation in her room ...

He forced her overboard..

And as much as it pains me to say it, Christopher walken just sat there and did nothing..

TL;dr

Meathead thinks Robert did it for sure..

The 'wayback machine' tale I heard was they were all drinking in the boat, she fell in when she left alone. They didn't find her for hours because they were all in there drunk. That would explain why she drifted a mile away, maybe. The dingy was launched to go look for her, maybe.

It was a tragic accident, I guess.

That is a very sanitized version of the sad event that took place that night.

Please take a look at my previous post..

I already did. Yours is as unverified as the rest. Nobody was charged for any crime, there is no evidence that anyone killed her.
