Natalie Wood was best known for her roles in West Side Story and Rebel Without A Cause and was 43 at the time of her death.
Robert Wagner was Wood’s husband and on the boat with her that fateful night. Also on the boat, was friend and colleague actor Christopher Walken. Allegedly, after the three had been drinking heavily, the actress fell overboard and drown. The case has been an enduring Hollywood mystery that has sparked controversy and conjecture for decades.
The police have not announce what the “additional information” is that caused them to reopen the case. A detective will speak with reporters later today, but the online chatter has already started.
