Natalie Wood Case Reopened, The investigation into the death of actress Natalie Wood has been reopened by the police on November 17, and this time, a witness came forward and said she heard the late actress shouting for help on the night that she drowned. Wood died at the age of 43.

On November 29, 1981, Wood went boating with her husband, Robert Wagner, and actor Christopher Walken off Catalina Island in California. Although it was reported that the couple had argued that night, there was no evidence of foul play in Wood’s death. According to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, she could have slipped and fallen into the water while trying to secure a dinghy to the boat.

Accidental drowning was declared to be Wood’s official cause of death. However, since concrete information about that night is few, speculations have abounded and her case had remained one of Hollywood’s longest-running mysteries.

Recently, Marilyn Wayne from California said that while in the same area that night, she heard a woman screaming for help for about 15 minutes. Her location was approximately 40 yards away from the Splendour, the yacht where the actors were staying. According to Wayne’s sworn statement, she and her boyfriend, John Payne, were sleeping in a sailboat, the Capricorn, on November 28, 1981 when she heard a woman’s screams through the open window of the cabin.

“A woman’s voice, crying for help from drowning awakened John, and he awakened me. ‘Help me, someone please help me, I’m drowning,’ we heard repeatedly. Alarmed, I called out to my son, who also heard the cries, and looked at his new digital watch: it was just minutes after 11:00 P.M.,” she said in the statement.
