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.

Call us when you've got a murder weapon or a confession or video tape or something like that!

    I never believed it was an accidient…people don't drown siliently, and they don't drown quickly.There was time for someone to get an oar or something and help her out of the water…..Karma may be working Robert wagner…hope you've been haunted for a while about this .



  2. 2

    "Captain" Dennis Davern is a fool out to make money. Nothing more.



  3. 3

    No one every believed the story wagner gave but also new hollywood was famous for cover-ups and nothing would come from it…



  4. 4

    By the way, the short form of "Captain" in Capt.



  5. 5

    waste of time. Nobody would get convicted on this evidence 30 years later. Police should be spending their time on current cases and catching murderers of today. Theyre the real danger to people.



  6. 6

    The Captain says he was doing drugs the days before, and that day he was VERY drunk on hard liquor and beer that night. Karma will get back to the evil profiteer "Captain Moneygrubber."



  7. 7

    ALL of these people heard her screaming but NO ONE decided to help her?! They sound like the real assholes and the fact that the captain was on the boat and didnt help makes him just as guiltily in my book



  8. 8

    The captain has been trying to make money out of this for years. The woman who heard Natalie screaming for help is not a new witness. They never convicted O.J., and they certainly won't convict RJ after all these years. Side note, since their wives' deaths, look how these men have acted. Which one has acted guilty?

    All were\are a bunch of drunks. Natalie was wearing sox, pajamas, and a down padded coat. She would not sleep in the same bed with RW that night, after he had confronted her and Chris over the rumored affair during the filming of "Brainstorm". But it was true! The booze had lowered the inhibitions of all. While Nat and Chris drunkenly got flirty in front of RW, his jealousy/frustration was like a volcano. He smashed the wine bottle on the galley table and broke up the party. When RW followed her into the sleeping quarters, Natalie wanted to get away from RW and rushed out onto the deck and made a half-hearted effort to pull the skiff closer to the side of the "Splendor". She slipped! RW, being drunk himself, noticed how her down coat acted as a life vest. "Let her soak for awhile and cool off! She's such a drama queen!" He dozed off for what seemed like a minute. He looked again, and Nat was still bobbing like a cork, thanks to that ugly coat. More ZZZZZZ, while the Nat's coat started sopping up the water like a sponge. 30 years later, we have comedies called "The Hangover" where no can remember what happened the night before. ha ha ha

    Another site indicated that she caem upon R.W. going down on Christopher, she fled in tears, he got up (after cleaning off the cooze from his mouth), RAN AFTER HER, SHE FOUGHT HIM OFF, RAN INTOTHE DINGHY, AND SLIPPED OFF IT, AS SHE WAS PISSED DRUNK. HE DID NOT WANT THIS VERSION GETTING OUT ! AMONG THE TWO, THEY AGEED TO WHAT THEY TOLD THE COPS…..

    People often end up dead when involved in infidelity.
    .
    Infidelity is an inherently risky behavior.
    .
    Nothing would surprise me. (Except if I found out that Wagner didn't do it.)

    Re: pie107 – Amen!

    The truth is that Captain Dennis Davern isn't the ONLY ONE to try and capitalize on the latest version of this tragic 'story' ~ so is Perez Hilton.What a drama queen headline! What next, idiots who claim that they can see and hear dead people screaming?

    Apparently, you have to get a little 'creative' when the truth is much less exciting or marketable. The truth is that Natalie's drowning was just a tragic accident that COULD have been avoided, but it doesn't mean that she was murdered that night.

    Ever try walking on the wet deck of a moving boat? If you COULD hear Natalie now, what would she be saying? I should have worn my Topsiders! Or maybe, STFU Dennis Davern. (She doesn't even KNOW Perez ~ or she'd tell him to STFU too!)



  15. 15

    Why does it take this much time to come forward. I know the saying better late then never but WTF?



  16. 16

    WAGNER IS STILL GUILTY. NOT AIDING SOMEONE WHO IS AT RISK OF DEATH BY YOUR ACTIONS AND KNOWING SHE MAY DIE IS NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE. ALCOHOL OR NOT. OTHER WITNESSES SAID THEY HEARD A LADY SCREAMING/YELLING AND A CALM VOICE SAYING "WE'LL GET YOU OUT, DONT WORRY". CNN REPORTED THE SCREAMS/YELLING WENT ON FOR 15 MINUTES THEN SILENCE. RJ WAGNER WAS KNOWN IN INNER CIRCLES AS A BISEXUAL AND THE STORY HE AND WALKEN WERE HAVING A GAY FLING IS WHAT MOST OF HOLLYWOOD WAS SAYING. NATALIE CAUGHT THEM HAVING SEX THEN A HUGE FIGHT ESCALATED BETWEEN WOOD AND WAGNER. SOMEHOW WOOD ENDS IN THE WATER (EITHER PUSHED OR ACCIDENTALLY FELL) AND WAGNER LET'S HER SOAK FOR A WHILE. INSTEAD OF IMMEDIATELY GETTING HER OUT SHE IS LEFT IN THE WATER AND EVENTUALLY DROWNS. THEN WAGNER AND WALKEN, CAPT COME UP WITH THIS RETARDED STORY OF THE BANGING DINGHY THEORY AND THAT WOOD WAS TRYING TO TIE THE BOAT AND FELL. WAGNER SUPPOSEDLY WAKES UP SEES WOOD GONE AND SEARCHES THE YACHT AND FINDS THE DINGHY SUPPOSEDLY GONE TOO. HER BODY IS THEN FOUND LATER BY THE COAST GUARD. ALL OF INSIDE HOLLYWOOD SAYS THE GAY FLING THEORY IS THE REAL STORY AND WAGNER/WALKEN/CAPT MADE UP THE STUPID BANGING DINGHY STORY. NEXT.

    While I don't think it was an accident, I'm not buying Marilyn Wayne's story. She was on a yacht 90 feet away, heard Natalie screaming for help, and NEVER talked to the police or told them what she heard? When she read in all the newspapers about Natalie being found drowned under very mysterious circumstances she didn't think to call the police? It "never came up"??? Bullshit.
    If Natalie was murdered, and these people are making up stories for money and publicity, it's going to do nothing but hurt the chances of justice ever being brought for Natalie. If she was murdered, then I really hope these people are telling the truth and not just looking for a paycheck.

    Re: Gilbert Bumpucker

    It's too bad that Chris didn't 'take a dive' instead of Natalie, but your 'version' of events sounds plausible to me. That said, there's a real BIG difference between being drunk, angry, passed out or really stupid and being a murderer.

    Either way, RW still has to 'live' with it!

  19. mizzb says – reply to this

    Why didn't these people come forward 30 years ago?



  20. 20

    STARLET???? Who is writing your comments now? They need to look up words for spelling, punctuation and facts. Natalie Wood was hardly a starlet, she was 43 when she died!!!



  21. 21

    weirdly enough i bought some movies yesterday one had chrSitopher walken in it and i was watching it (ITS CALLED' brainstorm') and imagine my disbeleif when i seen natalie woods in it too she was so beautiful old style not all teeth fixed plastic like today..the movie itself kind of sucked would of been good in its day christopher was actually handsome i just wish i didnt pay TEN BUCKS FOR IT !!!

    Re: xcalibur – Yes I agree the lying bastard did it there no way Natalie would leave her bedroom on a rainy night and mess with dingy !! I believe that after he pushed her, he waited and put music up and drank some more then fell asleep then woke up after he knew she was dead and started lookimh for her. why the boat next to them never made a call to the police is a mystery.

    Boy talk about mystery lovers speacial lol You guys have it down pat ,not, Why is it no one cna understamd that they were all drunk? The drama queen got in the b oat and was leaving becaue of the arguing and she fell out of ut. do you think for one minute that 30 yrs later they are going to charge someone for this> AND how the hell does all of Hollywood know that wagner and walker were having sex and she caught them????
