The official cause of Natalie Wood’s 1981 death remains accidental drowning, as investigators say they have found nothing to dispute that in the two months since they re-opened the case.
“At this point, it is an accidental death,” William McSweeney, chief of detectives for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, tells the Los Angeles Times. “Nothing has been discovered to suggest changing that at this time.”
The case has not been closed, but McSweeney said it is unlikely anything new will be uncovered about death of the actress, who was 43 when she died.
