Home Celebrity Natalie Wood Sheriff’s Press Conference: Robert Wagner Is Not a Suspect

LA County Sheriff’s Department says they’re “always open” to receiving info about past cases. “Substantial information” has made them want to take a second look at the case. But the Sheriff’s department says “Robert Wagner is not a suspect.” Several sources, they say, have come forward to make them take this second look at the 30 year old case.  Natalie Wood‘s death was ruled an accidental drowning on November 29, 1981. Wood died several weeks after Hollywood star William Holden. Wood’s husband, Wagner, and Holden’s long time love, Stephanie Powers, starred in a TV show at the time. This led the New York Post to publish a front page headline: “The Tragic Jinx of Hart to Hart.” It’s one of best tabloid headlines ever.
