In case you might not have heard, the case surrounding Natalie Wood's death has been reopened, in hopes of shedding some new light on what could have happened the fateful night the starlet drowned.
The captain of the yacht she was cruising on has made it BIG on this venture, talking to every news source imaginable to share his side of the story. The events of that night are shrouded in so much mystery that it is hard to know what facts to take heart, but still, Captn. Dennis Davern seems fairly convinced that her death was in fact a murder.
From his perspective, it seems like Captn. Davern is placing the blame on Wood's then husband Robert Wagner, claiming that the actor was drunk and fighting with fellow passenger Christopher Walken at the time of Natalie's death. In a new interview, Captn. Davern recalls the star smashing a bottle of wine in a fit of anger and screaming at Walken "Do you want to f*ck my wife" in the moments before Natalie "fell." He also has told the police who reopened the case that Robert and Natalie were spotted fighting on deck shortly after that and recalled:
"The only full sentence I could completely decipher during the entire argument was “Get off my f*cking boat” said by Robert Wagner."
But its not just Davern who is cooperating with the police. Marilyn Wayne was on an adjacent yacht, roughly 90 feet from the Splendour, when she heard Natalie Wood yelling for help on the night. She too has offered her services to the police in an effort to bring the case to a close once and for all. She explains:
"I have not yet spoken to the police, it hasn't come up. But I'd speak to any police that came to me to ask a question, for sure."
Perhaps it is just us, but we're waiting for something a little more juicer to come up for us to get invested in this case again. Of course, we want to know what happened to Natalie, but all of this information seems redundant and spun around.
