What Really Happened to Natalie Wood?

The mysterious death of Natalie Wood is about to be re-opened in the Golden State.

So, where were you when Natalie Wood died 30 years ago? I was in a gift shop in Orange in what once was the Edwards shopping plaza with my new husband of three weeks.

As we strolled through the aisles looking for a birthday present, the announcement came over the radio and I just froze in shock.

When we got home we watched the news brief on tv and then caught a little on the evening news braodcast.

The circumstances of her death always seemed a bit suspect to me. Nothing made any sense. Here she was, a good swimmer, the boat story, what she was wearing... everything about it didn't make any sense. Bring in Dr. Henry Lee!

This is one case that I would love to see solved with a reasonable conclusion, because the story we were given 30 years ago never, ever held water.

Now the boat's captain has "new" evidence? It's not NEW evidence, it's 30 year old information that he withheld for 30 years!

Investigators are talking to the captain later today, what do you think he'll say?

Did her husband have something to do with it ... or, was it someone else on the boat? This story needs an end. Her children need to know what happened to their mother. I, for one will wait anxiously for the evening news.

OK. I just read SOMEONE ELSE is writing a book and interviewed Captain Jack. My bad for believing what I heard on TV this morning. (or for believing what I just read?)

Natalie Wood should be remembered as a beautiful, talented, gifted actress. Whenever someone young and stunning dies in such a tragic, needless way we all feel bad. I know , I was only 31 when this happened and it still breaks my heart. But give her what's due- a fond memory. Let her in peace.

Senility makes people, even boat captains, remember things wrong. Our lake Lanier in Ga will make you go under in the cold water in no time flat. A big puffy coat with loose gown tangled around your legs.. Cold water; half drunk, only seconds to find something to grab ahold of before you are a gonner. RIP Natalie.

California is not the "Sunshine State", Florida is. California is the "Golden State"
