Police re-open investigation into death of Natalie Wood

Actress drowned 30 years ago while boating

The investigation into the death of actress Natalie Wood, who drowned 30 years ago while boating, has been re-opened by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The death of the iconic actress, who was on the boat with her husband Robert Wagner and their friend Christopher Walken, was ruled an accident, but has spawned many conspiracy theories about what really happened, many of them based on the fact that Wagner and Walken had an argument over Wood’s career. The captain of the yacht, Dennis Davern, has claimed that he lied to authorities about the circumstances of her death and that it may have been related to the argument. Now the police say they have been contacted by “persons who stated they had additional information about the Natalie Wood Wagner drowning,” and will look at the case again. A press conference will be held today to discuss the new information.
