Natalie Wood Wagner died 37 years ago, after mysteriously disappearing from a yacht she was on with her husband, Robert Wagner and co-star, Christopher Walken.
Wood's body turned up a day after she disappeared, and her official cause of death was listed as an accidental drowning. However, no one really bought that story. Her death was extremely suspicious, but for 30 years, the official record stated it was an accident.
In 2011, Wood's case was reopened, and people's suspicions were starting to be confirmed. Coroners changed the cause of death from "accidental drowning" to "drowning and other undetermined factors." Reports of bruises covering the late actress's body started to surface, as well as rumors surrounding Wagner's jealous rages.
According to the ship captain Dennis Davern's sworn statement to police, Wagner and Walken got into an argument surrounding Wagner's jealousy. A furious Wagner yelled "Do you want to f**k my wife?!" at Walken, which is when the The Deer Hunter actor smashed a bottle of wine. Moments later, Wood fell off the boat. Davern says Wood and Wagner were also arguing.
"The only full sentence I could completely decipher during the entire argument was 'Get off my f****** boat' said by Robert Wagner." He recalled showing up on the deck where the argument was taking place. "Wagner was present, and he stood near the far rear wall of the yacht."
The case has remained open since 2011 and now, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has released new information on a person of interest.
