As the re-opening of the Natalie Wood death investigation made headlines, Christopher Walken was on the set of his latest project, "Seven Psychopaths."

Walken was on board the boat the night Natalie Wood died ... but as TMZ first reported, cops do not consider Walken a suspect

If Walken isn't a suspect. And Wagner isn't a suspect. And the boat captain isn't a suspect -- just who in the hell supposedly murdered Wood? A rogue sea otter? Space aliens? The ghost of Blackbeard?

so why even mention him if he's not a suspect. This just casts suspicion in peoples mind TMZ when you this. How would you like it if your name kept coming up in a murder investigation when you had nothing to do with it?

Truth    

YAAAWWWN, ZZZZZ!!!! THEY ALWAYS SAY "THEY'RE NOT A SUSPECT" UNTIL THEY HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE. EVERYONE KNOWS THE PO-PO ARE GUNNING FOR RJ'S BI-SEXUAL AZZ AND WALKEN CAN VERIFY THAT. TOO BAD THEY DIDNT HAVE CELL CAMS BACK IN THE DAY. THE ENTIRE DRAMA WOULD BE POSTED ON YOUTUBE BACK IN '81 FOR REALZ INCLUDING THE LEAKED SEX TAPE OF RJ AND WALKEN. ALSO, THE COPS PLAYIN MIND GAMES. IF THEY SAY YOU'RE NOT A SUSPECT IT MIGHT MAKE POTENTIAL MURDERERS LIKE RJ TO ABSTAIN FROM LAWYERING UP FASTER THAN THEY WOULD. REGARDLESS RJ IS OJ 2.0... TRUTH!!

That was a small boat, the captain had to turn his music up loud to drown out RJ and Natalie screaming at each other--and this guy said he slept in his cabin the whole time? Doubtful.

It does sound a little strange, because the boat isn´t that big. But of course, if he was dead-drunk, he could have slept through it.
The captain on the other hand, he must know more than he says.

First they are a person of interest then they become a suspect later, if warranted.
If she was afraid of the water why would she want to get in a dingy at night and go away? The story was always very strange.

What might have happened was it is a fact that Robert Wagner was jealous and was in a rage. Even he admitted this when he and Natalie were alone it escalated and maybe he accidently killed her. Then he covered it up by putting herin the dinghy to make it all look like an accident. That is what I believe happened in reality but only Robert Wagner can tell the truth. Didn't they have kids together? They must be shocked to not know what happened to there Mother!! He should tell the truth.

CW needs to step up to the plate and tell EVERYTHING he knows. . . that there was a drunk argument and a jealous triangle, and that RW pushed NW.

Have you seen the Splendour? It's not a big boat. If there was a fight/comotion, everyone aboard would hear. . . If there were other boats nearby that night, there could be addtional witnesses who are now redy to come forward after all this time because they are no afraid/intimidated by RW or his studio. . . In the past, Hollywood execs knew how to shut people up when they wanted to!

Christopher Walken looks great. He had nothing to do with Natalie Wood's death. She was drunk out of her mind and went to tighten up the line to a dingy that was banging alongside the yacht. She fell overboard. She desperately tried to save herself. She drowned. It was a tragic death. Mr. Walken has retained a lawyer and I'm sure it's to protect his good name.

Elizabeth is a class act    

If Natalie was "tipsy" and due to the fact that she was such a petite lady...probably 95 pounds or so at 5' tall...I doubt she would have had the strength to tie the boat.

The only thing that makes sense, especially because of all the bruises she was found with, is that a physical fight took place before she was removed from the yacht. Perhaps she was already dead? And the cover up was to get rid of her body? Maybe she was just knocked unconscious but was thought to be dead?

Just nothing else makes sense for her to disappear in her nightgown. Being tipsy, she probably would have just slept through any noise the boat was making...I don't think she would have been bothered enough by it to go out in her nightgown and try to 'man up' enough to tie up the boat herself. Wouldn't she just get one of the other men to do it?

I think the bruises are the 'key' to what happened, personally.

get a life ho    

The original story of her tying up the dingy is pure BS if you know anything about boating . I didn't buy RW's story 30 years ago and I certainly don't buy it now . It off'ed her and covered it up IMO.

WTF do you expect him to do?? Wander around his house and freak out about it? Jesus, sometimes you guys report the stupidest ****. Speaking of ****, Ben Affleck is probably taking a dump at the El Pollo Loco off Sunset. That would be a more interesting story.
