LOS ANGELES (AP) — A yacht 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 Southern California.

The circumstances of her death remain one of Hollywood's enduring mysteries and continue to create renewed intrigue, with homicide detectives on Thursday unexpectedly re-opening the case that had long been classified as a tragic accident.

The captain he wrote a book about it but he must be low on cash so now he can get a chance to make a few bucks.

Exactly.

How do you keep the status quo intact?

You distract the masses with reality TV and pseudo journalism.

MSM to America: “Hey, look over here! Shiny keys! Shiny keys!”

"He wrote that he never saw his wife after she died ..."

If he had, that would have been pretty amazing.

Well I would think he would have been there when her body was found and he would identify her, not the boat captain as it happened.

There were a lot of public suspicions at the time of her death. I suspect there was an argument and probably alcohol involved but I never thought she was murdered.

Still don’t.

I don’t know what happened on that boat, but she was beautiful and talented. We used to have a saying way back when: “Looking good like Natalie Wood on a Pontiac hood”.

On the radio they covered this and mentioned that in his autobiography Robert Wagner said he felt responsible for her death, but says “not in the way the captain is saying.”

That’s the perfect example of how people from Janet Reno on up get the credit for saying “I am responsible,” but they never have to deal with the consequences of that. They want the applause for stepping up, but don’t want to PAY for taking responsibility.

That last night Natalie said she wasn't going to shower aboard, instead she preferred to wash up on shore.

BS, she was DRUNK. She got into a boat a night , fell overboard and drowned. It actually happens all the time.

It happened to a friend of my father inlaw in Camden , ME harbor. He was coming back from the bar drunk. He tried to get in the dinghy and fell in the water. They found him floating about 30 feet from his boat, 20 feet from shore.

Many do not realize, but a drunk person who falls in the water will oft times swim DOWN instead of UP. Sad but true. Happens all the time. And if/when they do realize what they’ve done, they panic.
