November 18,2011. Montoray Park California. USA. (C) Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. John Corina homicide detective and his team speak to the media Friday about the decision to take another look at the Oscar-nominated actress Natalie Wood's nighttime demise in the chilly waters off Southern California on Nov. 29, 1981. Natalie Wood drowned after spending several hours drinking on Catalina Island and a yacht with Wagner, fellow actor Christopher Walken and the ship's captain, Dennis Davern.
The captain said on national TV Friday that he lied to investigators about Natalie Wood's mysterious death 30 years ago and blames the actress' husband at the time, Robert Wagner, for her drowning in the ocean off Catalina Island. photo by Gene Blevins/LA DailyNews
