Natalie Wood Investigation

Robert Wagner NOT a Suspect

11/18/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

111811_presser_videoRobert Wagner is not a suspect in Natalie Wood's death -- this according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department -- but a spokesperson says they've received new information that was "substantial enough" to reopen the investigation.

Lt. John Corina wouldn't go into detail about the new information during a news conference -- but said it was credible, and that two homicide investigators have been assigned to the case ... 30 years after Natalie's drowning was ruled accidental.

Lt. Corina also wouldn't say if Natalie's body would be exhumed, or if Christopher Walken -- who was on the boat the night of Natalie's death -- would be interviewed.

Does he need to explain? They're doing it for the publicity. I mean, this is L.A. Like they don't have enough current crimes to keep them busy? Probably but it won't get them on TMZ like investigating a dead movie star (never mind the fact that there is no more actual evidence and the only thing they have to investigate is the memories of people trying to remember events from 30 years ago).

This will probably lead to nothing. What possible evidence can they find 30 yrs later with so few witnesses? There probably was foul play involved but how can you prove it after all this time? Any DNA?

Sheriff Crooked won't investigate Mitrice Richardson's death after she was released from sheriff's custody 2 yrs ago but he'll waste taxpayers' money opening a case that cannot be proved?? Someone needs to take a hit out on Baca, good lawd what a worthless POS. Poor L.A., no wonder crimes are never solved with this jackazz in charge.

I AM OLDER SO I REMEMBER IT ALL VERY WELL. THEIR FIGHTING AND DRINKING AND HER HISTORY OF HAVING SEX WITH OTHER MEN. WAGNER ALWAYS LOVED NATALIE DEEPLY....BUT THIS ONE TIME, WHEN DRUNK, SOMETHING VERY WRONG HAPPENED. THE SKIPPER OF BOAT CAN NO LONGER LIVE WITH HIS GUILT. HE SPOKE OUT.
NOW...NATALIES SISTER LANA HAS SPOKEN OUT. TIME FOR YOU, ROBERT WAGNER, TO COME CLEAN BEFORE YOU DIE. WE ALL KNOW YOU COVERED IT UP. TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH....GOOD MEN DO THAT. JUST AS A GOOD MAN CAN MAKE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE WHEN DRUNK AND FULL OF QUALUUDES.

Even as I kid I heard this story and just assumed it was murder. I don't even think the majority of people who have an opinion on what happened will say it was an accident..

BROKEN LANCE was the start of robert wagners mob actives for the studio mofia.He and my mother Jean Peters and the commuistes DIR setup and worked to kill off dad,,howard robard hughes JR and later me.Robert wagner was always the lady killer frat mobster right from the start.He could`nt control nat and lost his cool as a playboy for the mob studio he could`nt take a NO asker and went totally nuts as he was from his recruitment as a playboy lady killer for CBS as he still is pattern was set in place years and years ago.He got busted OLD and still playing and the studio mobster basses went to CASH him IN andout for mort MONEY as none of them look dirty this way as he killed for himself as in he was nuts right from the start of his recrutement for the studio mob.This way no dirt get on the studios and he goes down and way for more money as he is cashed out and they double cashin all moneys lead to the truth kill off and control of the hughes`s before nat he played mom jean peters on dad howard hughes

Only in celebrity suckupland Los Angeles do investigators have to hold press conferences to justify why they reopened a long dead case. This is such BULLSH*T...

Wagner's story stunk to high heaven from the get-go. I don't think there was a person on the planet that ever bought it and I never understood why there wasn't ANYONE at LAPD or anyone else that was interested in the truth.

Reopening Natalie Wood's case is merely a red herring to take the heat off Sheriff Crooked's mismanagement of the jails and everything else he screws up.. kinda like when Crooked implied in a press conference that Lindsey Lohan would serve her jail sentence, it was at the same time news broke about his deputies' rampant brutality in the jails.
