LA police want to interview Robert Wagner about Natalie Wood drowning

LA police want to interview Robert Wagner about Natalie Wood drowning

It's been almost 37 years since Natalie Wood drowned while boating with her husband, Robert Wagner, on November 29, 1981, and her mysterious death is making headlines once again.

However Corina emphasized that it remains an accidental death investigation, not a murder investigation.

Detectives hope it will bring forward new witnesses who provide the information needed to determine if the case was a crime or tragic accident.

At the press conference, Corina and the Los Angeles County's Sheriff's Department reviewed the new eyewitnesses' accounts that were presented last week. The lieutenant said no new physical evidence has been discovered but new witnesses have come forward, prompting authorities to name the 87-year-old Wagner as a person of interest.

"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".

"We're doing our last shot here, seeing if anybody else comes forward with any information", Corina said.

Wood's sister Lana, 71, said she was pleased after Wagner was named a "person of interest" in her "suspicious" death.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told ABC News last week in a statement, "Wagner has always been a person of interest".

However, Corina did openly lament that Wood's ex-husband and silver screen icon Robert Wagner has refused to cooperate with investigators.

She met Wagner on her 18th birthday, in a studio-arranged date with a man eight years her senior.

"She's missing and he sends them to go looking", Corina said. "We're not pressing charges on anyone", he said. "When all the tips dry up, we'll move on to the next case".

She was married to Wagner between 1957 and 1962 and from 1972 until her death.

Natalie Wood was an American actress who lived from 1938 to 1981. The actor couldn't swim. "The ultimate problem is we don't know how she ended up in the water". The only other person aboard was the boat's captain.

Wagner has denied any involvement in Wood's death. Walken went to bed and Wagner stayed up for a while, he wrote. However, that was not the full extent of her career, seeing as how she went on to play roles in a number of well-known movies as well as other projects as an adult.

"What happened that night only she knows, because she was alone".

Walken has said little publicly over the years about the incident and has offered brusque replies at times when pressed. I know people lose their tempers. "You feel you want to die making an effort at something; you don't want to die in some unnecessary way".

Witnesses have passed away, as has the original investigator assigned to the case.

In 2011, Wood's case was reopened. "And somehow she ends up in the water and drowns", Corina said. Wood wasn't wearing a life jacket, had no history of suicide attempts and didn't leave a note. Wood's autopsy revealed fresh bruises that, as Det. Scratch marks were found on the craft's hull.

The sheriff's department reopened the investigation into Wood's death in 2011. "Yeah of course we'd like to talk to Robert Wagner".

Ms Berk also reportedly said the case was being exploited by publicity seekers. But either Wagner or his lawyer refused.

His attorney has said he fully cooperated with investigators. "Mr. Wagner has been interviewed on multiple occasions by the Los Angeles sheriff's department and answered every single question asked of him by detectives during those interviews".

Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner arrive at the premiere of "The Godfather", on August 24, 1972, in London.

"I'm sad she didn't live to see us beyond the ages of seven and 11".

In the past, people on boats moored near the yacht have provided witness statements.
