I truly believe that her husband Robert Wagner is responsible for what happened to her.The truth will come out some day.

Robert Wagner murdered her. It's all over the news

Can someone please explain to me how someone can die of drowning when there is no water found in their lungs? That’s what the coroners report states. But everyone keeps saying that it was the water that killed her. Even if she had lost consciousness in the water, eventually she would have inhaled some, which would lead to a drowning. But there was not water in her lungs=she had already been not breathing/unconscious when she entered the water. Unconscious/ non breathing people are not known to be able to walk around and accidental fall in the water. But already dead/ dying/ unconscious people can be tossed into the water by someone else. It’s so obvious! Wagner’s account of what happened just doesn’t make sense scientifically.
Sydney Morris (3 days ago)
I dont think Wagner was intentionally trying to kill Natalie.
Cakie (3 days ago)
I’m starting to see a theme with these relationships. Payne and Wayne rhymes and everyone on that boat had a W in their last names, so clearly people have a thing for matching their last names for when they’re married. I’m looking to deep into this...
Haneen Abdelaal (3 days ago)
This lady deserves justice !!
Jedi Walker (3 days ago)
Haneen Abdelaal yup , and they need to stop saying that she died from drowning, because the coroners report states that there wasn’t ANY water found in her lungs. Which means She was already dead or on conscious and not breathing the moment her body entered the water. Since dead people aren’t known for being able to walk, someone had to have tossed her already non breathing body into the water. Basic biology that the media ignores

Theory 2 the captain prolly killed her cause he had an affair with her and didn’t want Wagner and walken to find out. Then made a story about it for his own fam.

I don't get how a case like this didn't have someone sentenced. I would assume they just didn't want to send a Hollywood star in prison.

So here's my theory: As the Wood/Wagner argument escalates and moves to the deck of the boat, Wood threatens to take the dinghy to shore as she did two nights before. Wagner, probably in a sarcastic manner, says "fine, go to shore" and in a struggle tosses her into the dinghy (Thus the bodily injuries) perhaps hoping she'd calm down/sober up while there or perhaps expecting her to attempt to start the dinghy, fail to do so given her drunken manner and ask to be let back on board. Instead Wood attempts to climb back onto the boat by herself and drunkenly falls into the water frantically trying to grab onto anything at the sides (Thus the scratches on the side of the boat). As this is happening she yells out "Help me, somebody please help me, I'm drowning!" (From the witnesses on the other boat heard). Enjoying themselves on the deck and dismissive of Wood's cries for help as probably the exaggerated fears of an aquaphobic, Wagner or perhaps even Walken mockingly responds "Ok, honey, we'll get you" (From what witnesses heard) without any intention of going immediately. Some time passes and Wagner decides to check on Wood only to see her lying face down in the water clearly drowned. Wagner panics (To the authorities, the circumstances wouldn't look favorably toward him) and devises to untie the dinghy allowing it to drift away from the boat giving the impression Wood attempted to get to shore on the dinghy and drowned on the way. Afterwards he heads up to tell the captain Wood is missing. The captain suggest turning on the lights and starting the boat to search for her. However Wagner knows that if they did so both she and the dinghy would immediately be seen nearby the yacht. Too close to believe she left in the dinghy several minutes beforehand.

Theory 1:Maybe she was having a bad dream and got sea sick and went to the side to throw up or get some air and fell off Theory 2:She wanted to face her fear and tried to swim but the tide was to strong and she drowned
armenianply (8 days ago)
I’m guessing my own theory. Natalie wood probably couldn’t take not being able to fully trust or love someone. So she figured spare herself and Roberto Wagner and Christopher walken grief. So she jumped from the boat. That’s just my theory

Rebecca Clark (8 days ago)
I don't think this was a total murder but it does stink of something gone wrong besides just Wood slipping. Maybe Wagner pushed her out in the boat expecting her to find her own way back - passes out drunk - and in the morning finds her dead.

The heroine fear is actually a real fear.
Homelandsecurity (10 days ago)
Well, it makes sense she had hydrophobia all her life and so she got paralyzed by being surrounded by water and drowned. She let her fears consume her maybe by what the fortune teller said or by something else, this what they call a case of self-fulfilling prophecy.

Heres the thing tho... People who drown doesnt float due to the water inhaled. People float when they don't breathe and the air inside stays.

Lumiya (12 days ago)
She could have been trying to escape or just leave them at simplest (explaining what she was wearing), but whilst climbing down, she might have fell down because of the waves, fell onto the water, tried to climb to the dingy explaining the scratches. Or instead of trying to escape, arguing was happen, then she was pushed off explaining what nearby witness heard that a woman saying help me or something like that and the pusher sarcastically said something like he'll get her. I believe this is the most probable scenario.
imhighwithoutdrugs (12 days ago)
All this talk about christopher walked reminded me of something that happened a couple of years ago. I live a block away from his townhouse in NYC and once I was walking back from getting a bahn mi. However the bahn mi was kind of moist so it soaked through the paper bag it was in, ripped the bag, and fell out of the bag all over the sidewalk just a block away from my apartment in front of Walken's townhouse. It was kind of late at night and only one half of the sandwich fell so I was in a rush to get back home to preserve the rest of my bahn mi so I didn't clean it up. It's just a cool random thought that Christopher Walken probably got up the next morning, left his house, and saw my Bahn mi.

I’m with the captain. He’s the only person without a confirmed alibi. Both Wagner and Walken were arguing with each other, confirming each other’s alibis. The detail about the night wood spent with Davern is sketchy.

I think that maybe Natalie, very drunk and not thinking straight, just though “I’m not going to be scared of this anymore” and wasn’t thinking of the dangers due to the alcohol.

So here's what happened Wagner was jealous of Woods flirtatious behavior towards Walken. They argued about her behavior his jealousy along with his quick temper pushed him over the edge. The hotel stay was an attempt to calm him down and convince of him of how loyal and faithful she was. She slept with him at the hotel and went back on the ship. However that was a temporary fix being that the arguing started back up. Someone probably the captain or Walken suggested a change of scenery to ease everyone's mood. But it didn't work for Woods being as her husband accused her of cheating and lying. So she was in a bad mood and was of course drinking. The couple got in a argument that pissed Woods off so much that she left their room so that she left the room not wanting to listen to it anymore he grabbed her the slurred arguments broke the bottle got her on the dingy in a druken rage pushed her over that why the sailor heard please help me and the unknown mockingly saying he'd help she tried to get back on the boat and couldn't and drowned. Wagner sobered up when he realized Woods was dead and immediatley covered his tracks aka dingy untied and telling captain to not turning on the lights for fear of seeing her body and don't start the boat her body would get caught in the blades then no one would find her because her body would be disfigured. Just my theory

Sjoerd Siemes (16 days ago)
She probably had a violent fight with Wagner because she was openly flirting the whole time. And than she was mad and drunk so she wanted to go to the shore alone. But drowned because of how drunk she was. I don't think she got murdered.
