It might be hard for those young people out there to appreciate Natalie Wood, but let’s just say that she was the equivalent of say, Natalie Portman back in the day, and her untimely drowning death in 1981 was a huge tragedy. It was thought to be an accident, but news is being made today that authorities are reopening the case. Why?
The autopsy report shows Wood had two dozen bruises on her body, including a facial abrasion on her left cheek, and bruises on her arms.
“My sister was not a swimmer and did not know how to swim, and she would never go to another boat or to shore dressed in a nightgown and socks,” said Lana Wood.
Although the county coroner’s office ruled that Wood’s death was an accident, others say the case hasn’t made sense.
Seems kind of weird to be that beat up when you drown, so authorities are going to look into the possibility that this wasn’t actually an accident. That would really be a breaking story for sure.
