Robert Wagner: Suspect In Natalie Wood’s Death?By: Amanda Crum - January 18, 2013
Robert Wagner, the actor some might know as Number Two in the “Austin Powers” films, has said he refuses to comment or talk to police any more about his wife Natalie’s 1981 death.
When Natalie Wood’s body was found floating in an area off Catalina Island after allegedly falling off the yacht she shared with Wagner, it was assumed she’d had too much to drink and had gone overboard in a terrible accident. But when later details came to light by the captain–such as an argument between Wood and Wagner and a possible disagreement with their guest that night, actor Christopher Walken–police deemed her death “suspicious”. Recently, a new look at her autopsy report has caused officials to question whether her death was an accident, as multiple bruises were found around her wrists, ankles, and knees which are inconsistent with a fall.
“The location of the bruises, the multiplicity of the bruises, lack of head trauma, or facial bruising support bruising having occurred prior to entry in the water,” reads the amended report.
Wagner seems to have said all he’s going to say on the matter and is not cooperating with police, who say he’s not officially a suspect as of yet.
“Mr Wagner has fully co-operated over the last 30 years in the investigation of the accidental drowning of his wife,” his lawyer said in a statement.
