Blink. Blink. Yeah. I KNOW.
Listen, I never believed for one second that Natalie Wood stumbled around in a nightgown and jacket to take a little time out on the dinghy attached to the yacht The Splendor that fateful night. Nor do I believe she got close enough to the edge to “fall” into the drink. Anyone who is terrified of “dark water” will tell you, NO WAY. In my mind there has been a Big Secret between Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken about what really happened that night off the coast of Catalina.
Look what we have here:
“An explosive new coroner’s report reveals Hollywood star Natalie Wood was likely beaten aboard her yacht before he went overboard and drowned in 1981.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s examination of the Wood case also found flaws in ‘every major’ finding of the previous autopsy report that led medical examiners to rule the Hollywood star’s death an accident.
It’s the latest step toward settling the question of whether Wood was murdered, or whether she accidentally fell overboard on her 60-foot yacht and drowned – as the original police investigation concluded.
The new coroner’s examination asserts that bruises found on the actress’ wrists, knees, and ankles were consistent with her being beaten…”
Natalie and Christopher were filming “Brainstorm” together at the time of her death. As well already know, the trio all went out drinking earlier the evening she died. Let me ask you something. Would Christopher have enough emotion invested in Natalie to beat the crap out of his co-star–or does that sound like something her possibly jealous and angry husband might do?
