Los Angeles County sheriff’s detective Lt. John Corina held a press conference today to speak on the departments new investigation into the death of famed Hollywood actress Natalie Wood. Shrouded in mystery, new details have emerged to give the police reason to reopen the case. However, Lt Corina specified that there are no suspects being considered as of yet, including Robert Wagner.
It has long been debated whether or not Robert had a hand in his then wife's death. So many things about the night are unknown that it is hard to be sure if blame should be cast on anyone. But for those who are not familiar with the story, Robert refers people to his memoir, in which he talks about the fateful night Natalie was taken from the world.
In his book, "Pieces of My Heart,” published in 2008, Robert explains that he was in a very tense mood over an argument he was having with Natalie and Christopher Walken, who was traveling with them. He mentions Natalie arguing with him when he wanted to bring their yacht closer to shore, and then later, “quite a bit of wine,” being enjoyed by all.
Robert recalls he got “pissed off” when Walken began advocating the “total pursuit of a career,” urging that Natalie agree with him. However, by this time, Natalie had left the two men at dinner to retire to the main cabin at the back of the ship. That is when the men's argument got heated and Robert slammed a wine bottle so hard it broke.
Robert then adds:
“The last time I saw my wife she was fixing her hair at a little vanity in the bathroom while I was arguing with Chris Walken. I saw her shut the door. She was going to bed.”
The rest of her evening remains a mystery.
This wouldn't be the first time the police have tried to find new answers, but perhaps this will be the last?!
