Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say actress Natalie Wood’s drowning is now being probed as a “suspicious death” after new witnesses emerged.
The announcement from sheriff’s homicide detectives comes hours after CBS News aired an interview with an investigator who said Wood’s husband, actor Robert Wagner is considered a “person of interest” in her 1981 death.
Wood disappeared after a night of drinking on a yacht with her husband and others. Her body was found later floating in the water.
It was declared an accident but police reopened the case in 2011 to see whether Wagner or anyone else played a role.
