Wag­ner re­fuses in­ter­view in re­opened Wood case

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — A sher­iff’s de­tec­tive says ac­tor Robert Wag­ner has not con­sented to an in­ter­view in a re­newed in­quiry into the drown­ing death of his wife Natalie Wood more than 30 years ago.

Lt. John Co­rina said that de­tec­tives have in­ter­viewed more than 100 peo­ple in the re-in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Wood’s 1981 death. Many of them hadn’t been pre­vi­ously in­ter­viewed by in­ves­ti­ga­tors.

Co­rina says mul­ti­ple at­tempts to in­ter­view Wag­ner have been re­buffed or gone unan­swered. He says de­tec­tives even trav­elled to Colorado at one point to try to in­ter­view him.

An at­tor­ney for Wag­ner and his fam­ily says they have co-op­er­ated with au­thor­i­ties over the last 30 years and have noth­ing new to add to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

De­tec­tives be­gan re-in­ves­ti­gat­ing Wood’s death in Novem­ber 2011. A re­view by coro­ner’s of­fi­cials re­sulted in Wood’s cause of death be­ing changed to “drown­ing and other un­de­ter­mined fac­tors.”
