Default Natalie Wood

This has been an ongoing topic among my family members and me for years. Its hard to believe that it actually came out in the newspaper--even if it is a scandall sheet. Really, I agree with the former poster, I wouldn't trust going out on a boat with an over bearing couple of people that could make up just about any story with that kind of money.

I don't by that either. Again...she was terrified of the water. While I don't want to think that RJ or Christopher Walkin had anything to do with her death, I do think someone had something to do with her death.
She was an alcoholic and had been drinking heavily, as i recall.

I read that she was afraid of drowning and didn't like being in boats.

I think she was murdered. Strictly my opinion; I don't remember the 'facts', if indeed there were any.

I agree with the above poster. I always thought it was fishy that a women who was terrified of water and had a phobia of drowning would go out on a boat in the middle of the night. I find it too ironic that she then died of drowning.

Ive always liked Wagner since a young girl.. thought he was so handsome. and loved how they got back together after both had remarried... but I think drink or whatever was involved and a fight broke out.. maybe she wasnt intended to go into the small boat or into the water but she did sadly, what a waste... but I think both the men on the boat knew what happened that night.. she was terrified of dark water I read. so am I , and no amount of drink would make me try and climb into a dingy at night ..

I think without knowing anyone involved personally and not being there when the incident happened it is not a good idea to speculate details about anyone or anything that happened.
It is irresponsible at best, especially for Law Enforcement Authorities or anyone involved with any media outlets.

Look....I always liked Robert Wagner, but come on.

They did argue, an autopsy determined that she was pie-eyed, and they were all drunk. I think she fell overboard during an argument, or he pushed her and didn't remember a dang thing. And that story about her falling in the water while securing a dinghy is a lot of hooey.

No one remembers anything, and nothing can be proven, so they might as well hang it up.

Going out on a boat that night was no more fishy than all of the other times she did it.

Yes, she was supposedly terrified of water, yet, she sure spent a LOT of time on boats.....not because she had to, but because she chose to. I always found that very odd.
