Lana Wood on CNN: ‘I don’t think Natalie fell’
Saturday, November 19, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Natalie Wood’s sister says she doesn’t believe the actress fell from a boat into the sea off Southern California’s Santa Catalina Island where she drowned nearly 30 years ago.
Lana Wood tells CNN’s Piers Morgan in an interview Friday that she has spoken several times with the boat’s captain Dennis Davern and he has told her that Natalie Wood’s husband Robert Wagner was involved in her plunge into the sea on Nov. 29, 1981. But Lana Wood said she does not believe that whatever happened was deliberate.
Lana Wood made her comments hours after a Los Angeles County sheriff’s detective stressed at a news conference that Wagner is not a suspect in the death of his wife, even though the investigation has been re-opened.
