THIS JUST IN……..
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor turned litigation specialist at Los Angeles’ Greenberg Traurig firm, is now representing Walken. The actor was one of the last people to see Wood, his co-star in the film Brainstorm, before she mysteriously died in 1981. Sources tell THR that Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department investigators do not consider Walken to be a suspect in the inquiry, which was officially reopened Friday.
OHHHHHH FROM SEASON 7.
JUST WATCH THIS FIRST. WINK????
BUT THIS FROM TMZ ABOUT WAGNER NOT BEING ABLE TO BE CHARGED ANYWAY………..
Although the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. says Robert Wagner is not a suspect, it’s pretty clear — as the last person to see Natalie Wood alive — he’s the target of the probe.
Under California law, even if Wagner accidentally pushed Natalie into the dark water … the most he could be charged with is involuntary manslaughter. But here’s the problem — there’s a statute of limitations of 3 years for that crime, so prosecutors would have had to file charges 27 years ago. Ditto voluntary manslaughter, which has a statute of limitations of 3 years.
The only crime for which anyone could be prosecuted is first degree murder, because there’s no statute of limitations. Remember, there are no possible witnesses other than Robert Wagner. Short of a bizarre confession, D.A. sources say there’s no chance of a prosecution. BTW, there’s a 6-year statute of limitations on second degree murder.
Natalie Wood’s sister has claimed that the actresses’ husband left her to drown on the night of her tragic death.
In an emotional interview Lana Wood said that when Natalie was in the water, Wagner, who she calls RJ, had forbidden the captain from helping her and said: ‘Leave her there, teach her a lesson’.
Speaking to TMZ, she claims Dennis Davern, captain of the Splendour yacht from which Ms Wood fell and drowned in 1981, told her what Wagner had said.
Lana told TMZ: ‘He (Dennis) said that everyone was quite drunk and that a fight broke out and that Natalie was in the water and he and RJ did nothing to pull her out.
‘He said, and this is a direct quote from what Dennis told me, ‘leave her there, teach her a lesson’.’
In her interview she also claimed that the captain told her Wagner called his attorney before he alerted the Coastguard to the incident.
The revelations come as the police confirmed today that they will reopen the investigation into the death and said they may use new DNA technology after receiving ‘credible and substantial information’.
They said, until they find evidence to say otherwise, the West Side Story actresses’ death will still be ruled as an accidental drowning.
The sheriff said at this point her husband actor Robert Wagner is not a suspect and would only say they planned to re-evaluate the evidence.
WOW. GODS, I SAID AT THE TIME THEY WERE ALL SO FUCKED UP ON PILLS, BOOZE, COKE AND ACID THEY PROBABLY HAD LITTLE MEMORY OF WHAT HAPPENED. BUT WHEN YOU CALL YOUR LAWYER FIRST THAT IS A PROBLEM WITH INNOCENCE.
SO WHO THE HELL…………….WALKEN? GODS CRAZY SHIT.
The L.A. sheriff’s office said Friday that Natalie Wood’s husband, Robert Wagner, is not a suspect in her death, despite claims by the boat captain that the actor is “resposonsible” for Wood’s death. A source in the sheriff’s office said Friday they will start by interviewing Dennis Davern, who says he lied to investigators in 1981. “We didn’t take any steps to see if we could locate her” Darvin said on the Today show Friday morning, adding that Wagner intentionally kept the investigation into her death under a low profile. Wagner, Wood, and her Brainstorm co-star Christopher Walken were boating off Santa Catalina Island when she drowned, and there have been reports that there was a verbal fight on board. Los Angeles police have reopened the case based on “additional information.”
AND THIS FROM CHRISTOPHER IN 1981 PLAYBOY INTERVIEW…………
“She was probably half asleep, and she was wearing a coat,” said Walken, who was aboard the yacht owned by Wood and husband Robert Wagner at the time. “She apparently moved the boat around, slipped, hit her head, fell into the water.
“She was discovered separate from the boat: Why would she get into the boat, then get out of it and into the water? She couldn’t swim. She hit her head, went into the water, the boat floated away, she floated away,” Walken told Playboy.
The actress’ death has again moved into the spotlight as authorities announced Friday that they are reopening their 30-year-old investigation into a case.
Her death was ruled an accidental drowning, and authorities said Friday that has not changed, even though the case is being reexamined.
The Associated Press reported Friday that Walken had discussed the case on a sports talk station in Washington, but the wire service later withdrew the report, saying the radio interview was a hoax.
During the 1997 Playboy interview, Walken brushed off questions about a fight with Wagner.
“The police thoroughly investigated the whole thing, everybody was questioned. If there had been anything wrong, certainly the police would have looked into it,” Walken said.
