Robert Wagner

I'm a Murder Suspect ... On TV

11/22/2011 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1122_robert_wagner_BN_01
File this under bad timing ... actor Robert Wagner -- currently the target in the Natalie Wood death probe -- will play a murder suspect on "NCIS" tonight.

In the episode, 81-year-old Wagner -- who plays Michael Weatherly's father on the show -- is arrested after police find him in a car with a dead body in the trunk.

It's pretty ironic -- considering the real-life L.A. County Sheriff's Department just reopened a 30-year-old homicide investigation into the death of Wagner's wife Natalie Wood.

Wagner's not officially a suspect -- but there's no denying ... investigators are definitely looking into the possibility that Wagner was responsible for Wood's death.

There was no black guy on the ship so it must've been an accident.

Bob got away with murder for three decades, and will continue to do so for another, if he doesn't croak beforehand!

Damn, it pays to be rich and famous! That is unless your husband's name is Robert Wagner! Yikes!

My question here is if others in the area heard her cries for help when she was drowning, why didn't Wagner hear her cries for help and do something. Did he let her die? Lot's of red flags here.

I respect Mark Harmon of NCIS--good guy in real life/never a hint of trouble--wonder if he will have RJ back on his program. Hope not. Have lost all respect for Robert Wagner--I think he killed Natalie.

It was a tragedy, but reopening the case seems like nothing more than a publicity stunt. So all of a sudden the skipper remembers hearing screaming? Seriously, after 30 years?? I feel very bad for Mr Wagner, who has been dogged by this for so long. The man lost his wife, leave him alone.

PS can't wait to see him on NCIS tonight! I love him as Tony's dad. What a pair!

well if he had any thing to do with natalie it was in the heat of the moment, so the most he could ever get is manslaghter, and since the statue of limitations is over for every thing but murder 1, and they could never prove that - this is all just a waste, just so some one can sell books - piling on the tragedy

This is ridic. she fell overboard drunk! Sad but true! Her sister Lana has been jealous for all these years and decided to bring her own name back into the spotlight.

He did it, and he's gotten away with it all these years playing dumb! And because he's a Old Ass Movie Star, they won't bring up on charges. Once again, the Justice System failed again.....

Hahahaha look at all these people stating matter of factly "I know he did it!". Really? Were you there? If so, you're just as culpable if he did. Stop saying you "know" things you can't possibly know. That's like me saying I "know" there was more than one shooter for JFK, even though I wasn't even born yet.

Even more ironic? Michael Weatherly played Robert Wagner years ago in the TV movie "The Mystery of Natalie Wood."

Harvey, you are so right. BS investigation regarding the death of Natalie Wood. I was there that weekend, on our boat in Little Fisherman's Cove. Was in Doug's Harbor Reef eating, when RJ, Natalie and Chris Walken were in there. It was wet, damp, cold Nov. day. Everything was wet, dark, very dark, and the swells of water made it very difficult to hear anything. It was and is to this day a tragic accident.
