Natalie Wood’s Cause Of Death Now “Undetermined”
This week, the Los Angeles County corner changed Natalie Wood’s 1981 drowning death from “accidental” to “undetermined.”
The actress disappeared while she was out on a yacht with her husband Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken. Walken and Wagner told the authorities that the couple had an argument, after which they made up.
But when Wagner went back to Wood’s room, she was gone. Her body was found the next day and her cause of death was ruled an accidental drowning. But since her death speculation has run rampant. Conspiracy theorists speculate all sorts of stuff that we won't repeat for legal reasons… although we're sure you can use your imagination.
There is one tricky part: the yacht captain admitted to the police that there was more to this story than an accidental drowning…
The captain, Dennis Davern, told the Today Show in 2011 that Wagner stalled attempts to find his wife. According to Fox News, “Davern said he believes Wagner intentionally kept the investigation into Wood's death low profile, and didn't do everything he could have done. When [host David] Gregory pressed Davern for supporting details, the captain said that was the duty of investigators.”
Because of Davern’s comments, the case was reopened in November of 2011, yet the police have denied that Wagner is a suspect.
The NY Daily News reports “The change was reportedly made because the coroner's original ruling was too hasty and did not account for the fact that there may have been another cause behind the bruising Wood sustained.”
Also, although he is not considered a suspect, Christopher Walken hired a lawyer over the reopening of the case.
Of course, some conspiracy theorists also think that Natalie Wood was sacrificed by the Illuminati, but they would think that, wouldn’t they?
