Lana Wood, the sister of actress Natalie Wood, believes that Wood’s husband Robert Wagner is responsible for her death in 1981.

Wood’s drowning death has remained a mystery for decades, but Lana Wood believes Wagner is to blame. She does not believe it was premeditated, but she is certain that Wagner was involved.

Lana Wood has written a book, “Little Sister: My Investigation into the Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood,” which aims to shed light on the facts surrounding Wood’s death and dispel the myths surrounding the case.

Full story:

On November 29, 1981, the body of actress Natalie Wood was found floating in the waters off Santa Catalina Island near Los Angeles.

She had been on a yacht trip with her husband, actor Robert Wagner, and their friend, actor Christopher Walken, when she disappeared.

The cause of her death was initially ruled as accidental drowning, but the case was reopened in 2011, and her death certificate was amended to include “drowning and other undetermined factors.”

Natalie Wood was born Natalia Nikolaevna Zakharenko on July 20, 1938, in San Francisco, California. Her parents, Nikolai and Maria Zakharenko, were Russian immigrants who changed their last name to Gurdin after they arrived in the United States.

Wood began her acting career at the age of four, appearing in films such as “Miracle on 34th Street” and “Rebel Without a Cause” alongside James Dean.

She received three Academy Award nominations for her roles in “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Splendor in the Grass,” and “Love with the Proper Stranger.”

On the night of November 28, 1981, Wood, Wagner, and Walken boarded the couple’s yacht, the Splendour, for a weekend trip to Santa Catalina Island.

Wagner and Walken had been filming the movie “Brainstorm” together, and Wood had joined them for the trip. According to Wagner, he and Wood had an argument that night, and she left the yacht and went to the guest cabin.

Wagner claimed that he went to bed, but Wood’s body was found the next morning floating in the water near the yacht. She was wearing a red down jacket and flannel nightgown, and there were bruises on her body and face.

An investigation into her death was launched, but the cause of death was initially ruled as accidental drowning.

However, the case was reopened in 2011 after new evidence came to light. The yacht’s captain, Dennis Davern, claimed that Wagner had prevented him from immediately searching for Wood when she went missing and that he had lied to the police about the events of that night.

He also claimed that Wagner and Walken were arguing on the yacht before Wood’s disappearance. The cause of death on Wood’s death certificate was amended to include “drowning and other undetermined factors,” and Wagner was named a “person of interest” in the case.

To this day, the circumstances surrounding Natalie Wood’s death remain shrouded in mystery. Some believe that she accidentally fell overboard while trying to leave the yacht after her argument with Wagner, while others suspect foul play.

The case remains open, and many are still searching for answers about what happened to the talented actress on that fateful night in 1981.
