Natalie Wood Death

Natalie Wood Death, More witnesses have begun speaking out about the death of Natalie Wood after an investigation into the matter, one of Hollywood’s biggest mysteries, was reopened earlier this month.
Wood, who played Maria in the musical film “West Side Story,” died at age 43 on Nov. 29, 1981 during a yacht trip near Catalina Island in California with Wagner, her then-husband, and Christopher Walken, who co-starred with her in the sci-fi thriller “Brainstorm.” Her death was ruled an accidental drowning.
Marilyn Wayne told the television show “Entertainment Tonight” she was on a yacht located about 40 yards away from the one Wagner, Walken and Wood were on. She said that on the night before Wood’s body was found in the water, at about 11 p.m., she heard a female voice yelling for help for about 25 minutes.
‘Somebody help me – I’m drowning!’ Wayne quoted the voice as saying, adding: “I went to the deck above and started calling out, ‘Where are you?’ It was very dark. There was no way to help unless I were to jump in and swim around blindly, which was not an option, given the temperature of the water, I probably would have frozen to death.”
“Originally, I remained silent because of my feelings for the family,” Wayne added. “The daughters were young and I thought it would be in very bad taste to rehash their mother’s last moments on this earth. Now, the kids are grown. I did have a certain fear of saying something. I got an odd note in my mailbox … that said just very cryptically, ‘If you want to stay healthy’ – I’m paraphrasing … ‘just keep your mouth shut.’”
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detective Lt. John Corina told reporters on November 18 that new information had surfaced and that investigators would re-examine the case. Wagner, 81, is not a suspect, but would be contacted about the matter, he added. He declined to say whether or not officials would speak to Walken. Both actors have not commented.
