Investigators appear likely to turn up the heat on actor Robert Wagner in the mysterious 1981 death of his then-wife, actress Natalie Wood. The truth is important and this news isn't a minor thing - I don't have to say how important this is.
During a news conference at sheriff's headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, Sheriff's Lt. John Corina said that the department was giving the case one "last shot" to see if any other witnesses would come forward.
When he went to their cabin, Wagner told him to go away before Wagner and Wood ended up arguing on the back of the boat, Corina said Davern told investigators.
The case was recently featured on an episode of "48 Hours". "We thought it was a good idea to let everyone know where we're at", he said.
"We would love to talk to Robert Wagner".
Los Angeles County homicide detectives have named Wagner a "person of interest" in the probe of the unexplained 1981 drowning of Wood, saying he was the last person with her before she vanished off southern California.
"Whether or not that will happen I don't know - but we can try". He added that investigators have asked to speak with Wagner, who is not a suspect, but he has declined the request "two or three times" over the years.
Actor Robert Wagner is not having the best start to 2018.
"We want to find out how she went into the water", Corina said.

Wood's sister Lana has also testified Wood had feared for her life before the incident - while also noting the star's public fear of water and her inability to swim.
So far, authorities say they don't have enough evidence either way, and the only crime that hasn't had the statute of limitations expire is murder.
But investigators now say that Wagner and Davern's accounts of that night have shifted. "But he's not! I said why are you lying to me?" she said.
Corina emphasized that right now the department is "not pressing charges on anyone". "We're still trying to figure out what happened". At the time, the coroner ruled that Wood had died from drowning as well as hypothermia, speculating that she might have had an accident when getting into the dinghy because of the alcohol, which would have had an intensified effect because of both the painkiller and the motion sickness pill.
"Our biggest challenge is time", he said.
The show "48 Hours" has brought back conspiracy theories and possible motives for the actress' death. "I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared". Wood, Wagner, Christopher Walken and yacht captain Dennis Davern were all on board the night before Wood was found floating in the water wearing a red down jacket and flannel nightgown.
There have always been rumors of foul play surrounding Wood's death.
But Wagner has refused to talk to investigators, and Corina told CBS that he doesn't think the actor has told the whole story. "So, stand up and tell me that". "And his version of events just don't add up".
Walken has only once spoken publicly about her death, in an interview with Playboy magazine in 1997.
