By the time her body was recovered, there was evidence of bruising found on her. Coroners determined that these may have been sustained before she drowned.

There was also evidence that she had been drinking. Autopsy results showed that she had taken the drug Synthroid, which is known to make one susceptible to bruising.

Despite these clues, the cause of her death remained largely undetermined. It was officially called ‘an accidental drowning’.

Her husband becomes a person of interest

Natalie Wood’s case has never been closed. For years, officials have believed that Wagner was the last person to see his wife alive, but no criminal charges were filed against him.

However, recent events have renewed public interest in the nature of Wood’s death. First, in February, her husband was named a person of interest in the case. He reportedly refused to help with the investigations and changed his story of what happened on that trip. Detectives now say they suspect foul play.
