Natalie Wood, the legendary actress who drowned in 1981, may not have died an accidental death. This is the news gathered from a new Los Angeles County Coroner's report released on Monday (Jan. 14). Although the new report still does not allege foul play, it does note that some of her injuries are more consistent with an assault.

Wood died on Nov. 28, 1981, when she disappeared off a yacht after a night spent with husband Robert Wagner and their friend, Christopher Walken. The initial coroner's report supported Wagner's account, which had Wood going to bed earlier and not found missing until several hours later. It was conjectured that the actress had fallen into the water while trying to secure a dinghy that had been banging against the yacht's hull.

The La Coroner's office reopened its investigation in 2011, following allegations made by the yacht's skipper, Dennis Davern, published a book that contained a different account of the night. »
