    Wouldn't it be crazy if it turns out they were all drunk and went to bed. Then Natalie woke up and the good ole captain tried to have his way with her and he accidentally killed her????

    i don't think anything 'exciting' happened. i can totally buy that they were all drunk, she and wagner had a fight, and she fell over trying to fix the dinghy. drunk people die in stupid accidents all the time.

    I wonder if Wagner as a punishment to Natalie, put her drunk ass into the dingy and then left her knowing how scared she was, but that she really freaked, fell out, and drown. hum.

    Yeah, at the lake not to far from here it seems like we get one drunk person hurt or dead per year. Getting smashed on a boat at night is a terrible idea.

    A detective said Friday, however, that the three-time Oscar nominee's husband, actor Robert Wagner, was not a suspect.
    Ok, if he's not a suspect, who is? There were only two other people there, right? The skipper and Chris Walken.

    I mean c'mon, unless there's evidence of a bushy haired stranger the suspect list is a short one.

    I read an interview the captain did years ago in Vanity Fair, and he said a lot of the stuff then that's in his book now. Mainly about how Wagner stalled the investigation, then intimidated the captain into towing the line on Wagner's version of events, paying for a lawyer for the captain, etc.

    Like I said awhile ago and several pages back at the beginning of this thread, Wagner may not have killed Natalie but he acted waaay too suspiciously after she went missing and her death for me to not believe he was at least negligent. I believe the nearby witnesses who heard a woman near Natalie's location splashing around in the water and yelling for help, and a man's drunken voice mocking her. (The people on that boat used their light to search the water but couldn't find anything.) Also, Natalie was upset the night before and had had the captain untie the dinghy and take her to shore after a fight with Wagner. She was scared of the water and didn't want to touch the dinghy, so made the captain do it.

    I think Natalie slipped into the water somehow, not necessarily pushed, but I think Wagner was pissed and drunk and saw it happen, knew of her fear of water and wanted to teach her a fucked-up lesson and thought he'd leave her in the water for a bit, then freaked out when he realized she had drowned.

    I don't think they'd have called Wagner a suspect even if he was.

    I do find it telling they didn't call him and say, "We have reason to re-open the case of your wife's murder." He read about it on TV.

    Regardless - I read a lot of stuff on the net last night and I think there's definitely more to this story.

    For those that brought up the Quaalude aspect:

    This whole rehashing of the Natalie Wood drowning case thirty years after the fact looks like the LAPD trying to drum up some good will for itself. The fact that they got their “new” information from a book written by the boat captain is borderline absurd. This “captain” has been selling stories to the press for YEARS and certainly this publicity will help book sales. Back in 1981, the surviving parties, Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken didn’t want the public to know how high they all were on quaaludes (the hot drug at the time) and alcohol. No one wanted to ruin Natalie’s reputation either, so the drugs and booze were played down. Certainly, bad decisions were made by all three celebrities on the yacht – maybe even involving sex. Chances are, Natalie was so loaded she was clumsy and didn’t know what she was doing when she fumbled with the dinghy and landed in the water. And the guys were just too wasted to pay attention. There was no foul play, just massive inebriation.

    OK, I still want to know what Christopher Walken has to say which so far is nothing. If a couple were fighting for days on a yacht, why would you stay? Obviously the party is over. It's interesting that he was married but chose to remain on the boat and RJ didn't just ask him to leave if he was jealous. So maybe there was something between RJ and Christopher even though they allegedly didn't (and don't) get along. Or something between Natalie and Christopher which RJ tolerated for days even though they were fighting so much that Natalie had already cooled off onshore? It's all very strange.

    And about the people who heard voices, presumably the male voice was RJ's. Again, what was Christopher Walken doing?

    Dude, the witness from a nearby boat who reported a man's voice "very angrily saying 'Oh be quiet, we'll get you out'" makes me think Wagner either put her in the dinghy or even if he didn't, he saw that she was overboard and panicking. Obviously, he did not get her out, so I'm another one who suspects he purposely delayed helping her to teach her a fucked up lesson, because they were fighting and he was angry at her. If that's not being negligent and responsible for her death I don't know what is.
