We've gotta admit, we're a little bit surprised to hear this.
To recap, yesterday the Los Angels County Sheriff's Department announced that they are reopening Natalie Wood's 1981 death case.
As we said before, Natalie drowned while boating off Santa Catalina Island, and it was deemed an accident at the time.
Today, the captain of the boat came forward and claimed that Natalie's then-husband Robert Wagner is responsible for her death…and Natalie's sister Lana said she believed it!
NOW, the El Lay Sheriff's Department has released a statement saying

Another twist in the tale!
The case of Natalie Wood's mysterious death has been reopened, giving her sister the long-awaited moment to reveal that she never believed Robert Wagner's version of the story.
Lana Wood explains that she believes, even 30 years later, that Robert lied about what happened to Natalie that fateful day. According to Lana, Natalie would have never tried to secure a dinghy on the ship, because she was severely afraid of water. She even had issues going into a swimming pool!
Lana is hoping that by reopening this case, the truth will finally be revealed about her sister and she's more than willing to speak to the Sheriff's detectives about the nature of Natalie's relationship with Robert.
This is bound to get ugly - and fast!
