Thirty years later, the tragedy surrounding her remains one of Hollywood's biggest mysteries!
Known best as young Susan in Miracle on 34th Street and Maria in West Side Story, Natalie Wood was a beautifully brilliant star until her life ended far too early off the coast of Catalina Island in 1981.
Medical examiners one ruled her death an "accidental drowning" but new info proves her heartbreaking demise was ANYTHING but an accident!
After amending her death certificate last month, authorities changed it yet again to reflect new information uncovered by law enforcement!
Reports of that night vary, but we know Natalie's last few hours alive were spent on a yacht with husband and boat-owner Robert Wagner, speculated love-interest Christopher Walken, and a boat captain.
If her death was no accident, how did she wind up drowning in the ocean wearing only her long nightgown, socks, and a down jacket??
Was she murdered?! Did she take her own life?
No one can say for certain and it is reckless to speculate.
After all these years, authorities continue searching for the truth. Will they ever solve this riddle?
