Natalie Wood: Case Reopened
I couldn't believe my eyes a couple of days ago, when I was reading over some of the news. Natalie Wood's case has been reopened due to new information regarding her mysterious drowning back on November 29, 1981. If you read about the case, her death does seem a bit odd. I find it doubtful that she decided to board a dinghy in the middle of the night. I don't care if she was drunk or not, someone with a phobia of dark water wouldn't willingly go out and board a dinghy. In fact, I think she'd be even more terrified of dark water at that point.
I think that Natalie's death was most likely an accident, even though the details about her death sound strange and like something is being left out. Maybe she really decided to try to board a dinghy and fell off of it and drowned because she didn't know how to swim. Or maybe she was accidentally pushed overboard by someone and they panicked because they were unable to find her. Even if there was an argument going on, that doesn't mean Robert Wagner would purposely shove her off a boat to murder her.
The captain of the ship that awful night, however, is claiming that Wagner was definitely responsible for Natalie's death. Why would he wait this long to come forth with information? It seems a bit like he's trying to get some money off of the 30 year anniversary of Natalie's death. If something happened then, then he should have come forth with the information at that point in time or at least much sooner than 30 years after the incident occurred! Now, it's probably going to be too difficult to find usable evidence against someone, even if the person is in fact guilty. No one can claim someone is guilty and not provide any evidence to prove it, that's just how it works in this country. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
