Actress and golden-girl of her time, Natalie Wood, died under mysterious circumstances 30 years ago. The drowning accident in Southern California bring up uncertanties surrounding her untimely death that have lingered for the past three decades.
Earlier this month Woods, death certificate was amended to cover the uncertanties of her death. It has changed her death from an accidental drowning to "drowning and other undetermined factors," according to The Associated Press.
The document now states that the circumstances of how Wood died off Catalina Island in November 1981 are not clearly established. Nine months ago homicide investigators opened up the case of Wood's death again just before her 30th death anniversary.
Authorities have said that Wagner isn't a suspect although media speculation questions this. Dennis Davern, the boat's captain said to "48 Hour Mystery" and "Today" that he heard the couple fighting the night of her death. Wagner wrote in his memoir that him and Walken argued that night, Walken went to bed and then he went to bed after that. When he woke up he noticed that Wood was gone.
The Chief of Detectives William McSweeney said the decision to change her death certificate was ultimately made by the coroners office. Work on the case is not officially over but Detective McSweeney says that cases like these don't close. ""These cases have active periods and more passive periods. We're moving toward the end of an active period," he said according to the AP.
The certificate was just recently made public. Her death was very confusing because members on the boat had conflicting versions of what happened that day on the yacht. Robert Wagner her husband and Christopher Walken their friend were on the boat together.
