US Natalie Wood Case, US police reportedly are to re-open an investigation into the death of screen legend Natalie Wood, the “West Side Story” star who died in mysterious circumstances while yachting in 1981.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) on Thursday said new information had come to light over the death, which was deemed an accident at the time but which has long fueled speculation.

Wood drowned aged 43 while boating off of Catalina Island, near Los Angeles on November 29, 1981. Here death was investigated by the LASD and the LA County Coroner’s Office, who ruled it was an accident.

“Recently Sheriff’s Homicide Investigators were contacted by persons who stated they had additional information about the Natalie Wood Wagner drowning,” said an LASD statement.

In response, the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau “has decided to take another look at the case,” it added.

Wood — born Natalia Nikolaevna Zakharenko to Russian emigre parents in San Francisco — enjoyed a glittering Hollywood career, and is best known for classic movies including “West Side Story,” “Rebel Without a Cause.”
