He said that while Wagner was questioned at the time of her death, he has not agreed to talk during the course of any further investigations after "two or three" requests.

Wood, known for high-profile roles in "West Side Story", "Miracle on 34th Street" and "Rebel Without a Cause", died in 1981 at age 43 while boating off Catalina Island with Wagner, Christopher Walken and two others. "He's a person of interest because he was the last person with her before she went in the water". As a result of the new witnesses - which include acquaintances of the couple, people staying on Catalina Island, and people near the boat where Natalie drowned - investigators have re-created a timeline of the events leading to her death.

However Corina emphasized that it remains an accidental death investigation, not a murder investigation. He said investigators have received numerous calls since 48 Hours aired, and that new information has "made us more suspicious of what happened that weekend", he said.

And if you can help them figure out why movie star Natalie Wood drowned that night - and especially if any current persons of interest had something to do with it - then maybe investigators won't press you too hard on why you didn't say anything in 1981. Investigators are now calling 87-year-old actor Robert Wagner a "person of interest" in the 1981 death of his wife Natalie Wood.

"So far he doesn't want to talk to us".

Wood's body was found floating in a Santa Catalina Island cove on the morning of November 29, 1981, after a night of dining and drinking on the island and on a yacht with her husband Wagner, fellow actor Christopher Walken, and the boat's captain. But the case was reopened in 2011 after the captain said he heard the couple arguing the night of her disappearance. Corina said the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office participated in the series to raise awareness.

Time has been the largest obstacle in the probe and the original investigator and numerous witnesses have died, Corina said.

"It was really intense and got so bad that he went down to the cabin to check on them because he was anxious there was some sort of assault going on".

Lt Corina said that their greatest challenge was the passing of years, and described the appeal for information as a final attempt to solve the case.

"It's very overwhelming and I don't know what to think right now", Lana told Fox News in a written statement.

The report also revealed that investigators hadn't preserved Wood's fingernails to determine if she had tried to claw her way back into the dinghy.

"Do we have enough to make an arrest at this moment?"

Detectives also interviewed other actors who knew Wagner and Wood to learn more about their relationship.

Why Has the Case Been Reopened?

"As you may recall, Natalie Wood was later reported missing from the boat".
