On Thanksgiving weekend of 1981, tragedy struck when the body of Oscar-nominated actress Natalie Wood was found floating on the shore of Catalina Island in California.

The West Side Story star was on vacation on a yacht with her husband Robert [RJ] Wagner, his friend Christopher Walken and the ship’s captain Dennis Davern.

Although Natalie’s death was initially characterized as an accidental drowning, years later, in 2009, the case resurfaced after Davern provided new details to police.

RJ Wagner was ultimately marked as a “person of interest” in Natalie’s death after the captain recalled a tense argument between the two shortly before the incident.

The now 91-year-old actor has never been tried for murder despite the case being labeled “suspicious” almost 40 years after the fact.
