Renewed Natalie Wood death investigation may be nearing end

Renewed Natalie Wood death investigation may be nearing end

Wood was on board the Splendour with Wagner, Christopher Walken, who was her co-star in the film "Brainstorm", after having dinner at a restaurant on Catalina Island. "He's always been a person of interest because he was the last one with her".

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has received numerous calls since "48 Hours" aired, Corina said.

"It was really intense and got so bad that he went down to the cabin to check on them because he was anxious there was some sort of assault going on". Corina said the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office participated in the series to raise awareness.

In addition, Corina said that cops don't understand why Wagner did not go out to look for Wood or calling anyone after she vanished from the boat they were on. "Time is our biggest enemy here", Corina said. "I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared". At the time, the coroner ruled that Wood had died from drowning as well as hypothermia, speculating that she might have had an accident when getting into the dinghy because of the alcohol, which would have had an intensified effect because of both the painkiller and the motion sickness pill.

"More than 100 people came forward", said Corina.

And now lately the number of witnesses coming forward has been reduced to a trickle, Corina said.

After a "48 Hours" report on Saturday detailed new clues in the investigation of actress Natalie Wood's 1981 death, the Los Angeles Sheriffs' Department followed up Monday morning with a press conference explaining the current status of the case.

So far, authorities say they don't have enough evidence either way, and the only crime that hasn't had the statute of limitations expire is murder.

"We can't make him". "When the tips all dry up, then I guess we move on to the next case".

Wagner's statements to investigators after the death and subsequent comments about the case "really don't add up to what we found", the lieutenant said.

Investigators closed the case two weeks after her death, ruling it an accident.

Lana said she was glad that investigators were now looking into Wagner, adding: "All I've ever wanted is the truth".

Wood drowned off the coast of Catalina island on November 28, 1981 while on a boat with her husband Robert Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and captain Dennis Davern. She was said to have had a lifelong fear of drowning and dark water. She was a child actor who starred in "Miracle on 34th Street" and the iconic "Rebel Without a Cause".
