Robert Wagner's Story Doesn't "Add Up", Say Police

Robert Wagner's Story Doesn't

"He's always been a person of interest because he was the last one with her", said Corina.

When the case was reopened, Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. John Corina said Wagner was not a suspect.

However, Corina did openly lament that Wood's ex-husband and silver screen icon Robert Wagner has refused to cooperate with investigators.

Wagner was the "last person with her, arguing, before everything went quiet", Corina said.

Law enforcement is now seeking more witnesses in the death of the Hollywood icon.

The result remains the same as it was in 1981 and in 2011: Investigators still think the death is "suspicious" (but not a murder case yet) and Wagner is still a "person of interest".

"Anybody there saw the logistics - of the boat, the night, where we were, that it was raining - and would know exactly what happened", he said.

At the time of her death, Wagner, Walken and Davern told investigators Wood "took off in a dinghy and went ashore". "Yeah of course we'd like to talk to Robert Wagner".

Wood was out on her family's yacht with Wagner, their friend Christopher Walken and captain Dennis Davern the night of November 28, 1981.

At the press conference, Corina and the Los Angeles County's Sheriff's Department reviewed the new eyewitnesses' accounts that were presented last week.

Natalie Wood circa 1980 in Los Angeles, California. She was said to have had a lifelong fear of drowning and dark water.

Wagner was at the time one of the industry's main leading men, and later became one of the biggest stars on TV with shows such as Hart To Hart and Switch.

On Monday, following another boost in lurid publicity about the case provided by CBS News' 48 Hours on Saturday, a team of sheriff's detectives appeared at a press conference in Los Angeles to appeal for somebody - anybody - to come forward to help them explain the case they're convinced is "suspicious" but they've been unable to solve for almost four decades.

Five years ago, Wagner's attorney, Blair Berk, issued a statement saying that neither Wagner nor Woods' daughters had any new information to offer and decried the exploitation of her death anniversary.

Investigators who have been working on the case for six years told 48 Hours they are ready to speak with Wagner, who Lana says has so far refused to cooperate since the case was reopened.

"I had a mean director one time who threw me in the ocean", Wood said in an interview. I know people lose their tempers.

"Do we have enough to make an arrest at this moment?" In 2012, the coroner's office amended Wood's death certificate to include "drowning and other undetermined factors", because investigators couldn't count out some of the bruises on her body. "Mr. Wagner has been interviewed on multiple occasions by the Los Angeles sheriff's department and answered every single question asked of him by detectives during those interviews".

In the documentary, Wagner is described as jealous over the relationship between Wood and Walken. "No", the statement said.

He claimed that Wagner's story has changed over the years, and said that Wagner did not immediately attempt to look for her once he determined that she was not on the boat.
