Police Say Robert Wagner Not a Suspect in Former Wife Natalie Wood’s Death

Mystery still surrounds the death of actress Natalie Wood after she was found dead 30 years ago on Nov. 29, 1981 after somehow going overboard off her boat while vacationing around Catalina Island with then-husband actor Robert Wagner and actor Christopher Walken

A book recently released has the captain of the boat Dennis Davern claiming Robert had something to do with his wife’s death, which is said to have opened back up the case. However, in a press conference on Friday Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said the actor was not a suspect, though he is presumed to be the last person to have seen her alive.

“Already people are coming forward and wanting to talk to us,” Corina said, adding that they are interviewing new witnesses in the case. As of late, Robert, 81, has not been contacted by police but Corina indicated during the press conference that will probably change. 

The captain who was on the boat at the time of Natalie’s disappearance has said that the actress’ death is “linked to an argument she had with actor husband Robert Wagner.” This is found in the book Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour (the name of the boat). Dennis appeared on the TODAY show Friday morning in a peculiar interview where he vaguely explained what went on before the actress went overboard.
