The tragic death of Natalie Wood has been discussed for years.
The mysterious circumstances around the Rebel Without A Cause star's 1981 drowning have led many to speculate that foul play might have been involved, but the coroner officially ruled it an accident.
After new testimony by the captain of the boat carrying Wood, husband Robert Wagner, and their close friend Christopher Walken prompted more digging, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office released a new report. It said:
"A few day old bruises were on the back of [her] right thigh and knee but there were fresh bruises and scratches to the right posterior leg.
The location of the bruises, the multiplicity of the bruises, lack of head trauma, or facial bruising, support bruising having occurred prior to the entry into the water."
OMG! It looks like there was something to the conspiracy theories that the multiple Oscar nominee was murdered after all!
There's no statute of limitations on murder, so the police still consider the possible crime an open case!
What could this mean? Guess we'll find out as the police continue their investigation!
