Captain: Wagner responsible for Natalie Wood death - Entertainment - Celebrities - TODAY.com
The Captain alleges they were having a very bad argument, And that Wagner was acting erratically when he mentioned Natalie's disappearance. It was also stated there was a lot of drinking going on. Did she simply fall, or jump? Or did the argument get physical and she fell due to that? After such a long time, memories are not fresh..Wonder how this is going to be pursued..

On one of the TV news shows last night the captain said that "he asked Wagner where Natalie was and Wagner said she's in the water, the captain said let's get her outta the water and Wagner said leave her there for awhile, it'll teach her a lesson".
That's the story that supposedly causes the case to be re-opened.

As much as any other murder investigation.

If someone in your family or inner circle died mysteriously wouldn't you want a thorough investigation or would you worry about the cost?

So to use your logic any unsolved crimes should just be forgotten about after a certain period of time?

How do you know who has gotten on with their life? Her sister Lana was never satisfied or believed it was just an accident. I'm sure it is as fresh in her mind as the day it happened.

Those of us who are familiar with the circumstances never bought the story.

A woman who was afraid of the water since childhood is not going out in a dingy by herself.

Ironically enough TCM is now airing "Slendor in the Grass". The director Elia Kazan had a hard time convincing Natalie to do a scene which required her to have head under the water in a bathtub.

There is no time limit on murder, if in fact one was commited.

Nothing wrong with reopening the case.

Why didn't the captain say something when this happened ... was he paid off and now repenting just in case his number is about to come up.

I never believed it was an accident when it happened.

That was my first thought too. Apparently he was threatened to say anything by Wagner as the story goes.

This reminds me of the story of William Shatners wife drowning where he stood by and did nothing and the police decided to rule it as an accident. Both cases of celebrities where there is some suspicion as to what really happened.
