RE-EVALUATION: 



Reason for re-evaluation : 



The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) had reopened 
the case in the fall of 2011 and had requested the current Chief 
Medical Examiner-Coroner to re-evaluate the case. They had 
interviewed the former Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner Dr. 
Noguchl, who did the autopsy, and other witnesses. During the 
interview with the former Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner Dr. 
Noguchi, they were made aware of a consultation report by one 
Mr. Paul Miller. The current Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner 
arranged a meeting with Mr. Paul Miller on January 24, 2012 at 
request of LASD Detective Lowe. Dr. Noguchi, Detective 
Hernandez, Detective Rubino, Detective Hecht, Chief Craig Harvey 
of the Operations Bureau and Mr. Miller attended the meeting. 
Report of Mr. Paul Miller which had been retrieved from 
Department of Coroner microfilm archives was authenticated by 
him during this meeting. A copy was given to both LASD and Mr. 
Miller. There was another meeting with detectives on March 2, 
2012, where the current Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner discussed 
his evaluation of the case and concern for non-accidental 
mechanism for certain bruises of the upper extremities. He also 
opined that there was no evidence of head trauma and that the 
bruises especially in the upper extremities appeared fresh and 
could have occurred before she entered the water. 

On April of this year the Sheriff's Department asked the current 
Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner to formalize his findings into 
the form of a report. The current Chief Medical Examiner- 
Coroner also met with Dr. Noguchi to discuss the autopsy report 
and Mr. Miller's report. Documents evaluated by the current

Chief Medical Examiner included: 1). Complete autopsy report 
from Coroner's case 1981-15167 (Natalie Wood Wagner). This 
autopsy report included the investigator's reports of Ms. Pamela 
Eaker, Form 3A listing the medication, evidence record, Form 6 
showing the preliminary exam, a typed autopsy report, the 
neuropathology report, microscopic exam report, toxicology 
reports and the chemical tests reports on right and left heart 
blood. 2). Mr. Paul Miller's evaluation. 3). Photographs. 
4). Sheriff's department complaint report 081-00898187349 and 
follow-up supplemental report 081-089 81 873 496 . 5). Sheriff's 
department satellite photo and map of the Isthmus area. 

Summary of the Circumstances: 

A) Ms. Wood's body was recovered from the Pacific Ocean on 
November 29, 1981 and she was pronounced on 0744 hours. After 
the body was recovered the Sheriff's personnel placed same in 
a hyperbaric chamber building for safekeeping. When recovered 
she was dressed in a blue and red plaid flannel nightgown and 
argyle socks. A red down jacket she was wearing was removed 
after she was pulled from the water. She had no 
underclothing. By the time Medical Examiner-Coroner's 
investigator Ms. Eaker got to the scene and took time of 
death parameters it was 1330 hours. Rigor mortis was 3 to 4+ 
at that time. There was lividity in the back that blanched. 
The environmental temperature at that time was 63 °F and liver 
temperature was 65°F. The surface temperature of the water 

at that time at 7:44 am was 62-63 °F. Ms. Wagner reportedly 
was found face down floating in the ocean, 200 yards off the 
Blue Cavern Point, Isthmus area of Catalina Island north of 
where the dinghy was found near the shoreline. The dinghy, 
which was located, had the key in the ignition in the off 
position, the gear was in neutral and the oars were tied down 
indicating the boat was never used. The decedent Ms. Natalie 
Wood, her husband, a friend, and the skipper of the Wagner 
family were spending the weekend at Catalina Island. The 
main vessel which they were traveling in was called the 
Splendour and was tied up to the mooring Nl in the Isthmus 
harbor. The dinghy which was near the shoreline when Ms. 
Wagner was found is a 13 foot Zodiac boat. It was called the 
Valiant . 

B) On November 28, 1981 Mrs. Natalie Wood, her husband, a friend 
and the captain were reportedly at a restaurant. They had 
been consuming alcohol and were seated for dinner between

1900 to 1930 hours. The restaurant owner indicated the group 
left the restaurant to return to the boat at approximately 
2200-2230 hours on November 28, 1981. According to the 
restaurant manager they all appeared intoxicated. He 
actually called the Harbor Patrol to assure that the 
decedent's family and decedent reached the Splendour safely. 

C) During the initial interview the husband of the decedent 
indicated that he, Ms. Wood, the ship's captain and another 
actor friend were drinking in the main cabin of the boat and 
they realized that Mrs. Wood was missing and also the Zodiac 
was missing. This was around 12 midnight. 

D) The restaurant manager indicated that they heard Mrs. 
Wagner's husband call for help around 0130 hours on November 
29, 1981. A search was soon begun with Harbor Patrol, 
Baywatch, private searchers, L.A. County Sheriff and U.S. 
Coast Guard. The decedent was identified by the captain of 
the Splendour at 0830 hours on November 29, 1981. 

E. The captain indicated that they had gone ashore in the 

afternoon of 11/28/81 to have dinner and were initially at 
the bar drinking until 7 pm to 8 pm. After dinner they left 
for the Splendour around 10 pm or 11 pm and continued drinking 
onboard. The captain indicated that they discovered Ms. 
Wood the decedent missing only around 12 midnight. They 
presumed she had gone ashore and back to the bar. At 1:30 am 
the husband called isthmus employees to look for Ms. Wood. 
According to the bartender, who attended to them on November 
28, 1981, they continued to drink till 7:30 or 8 pm. They 
were generally quiet. Neither the victim nor her husband 
acted drunk but the ship's captain and their friend did 
appear intoxicated. According to the bartender they left the 
restaurant at 10:15 pm. All four of them made a toast and 
broke their wine glasses. He felt they were all pretty 
shaky. At the restaurant, Ms. Wagner had been dressed in 
blue designer jeans, a yellow sweater and a red down 
jacket. She also had jewelry which included a necklace and 
two or more rings. 

The Zodiac dinghy boat involved in the incident was found 
against the rocks at an area called Blue Cavern Point, 1-1/4 
miles northeast of the Isthmus pier where the Splendour was 
moored. The victim Ms. Wagner was found approximately 200 yards 
north of the Blue Cavern Point. It appeared that the Zodiac had 
just drifted to the position where it was found, having never- 
been started. The dress Ms. Wood was wearing was a one piece 
plaid blue and red nightgown with no underclothing. The autopsy

was conducted by Dr. Joseph Choi, Deputy Medical Examiner. 
Other Medical Examiner staff involving the case included Dr. 
Thomas T. Noguchi, Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner and Dr. Ronald 
Kornblum, Deputy Medical Examiner. Autopsy was conducted on 
November 30, 1981 at 1330 hours. Ms. Wagner was 43 years old, 
weighed approximately 120 pounds and was 64 inches in height. 
The right forearm showed a 4 inch x 1 inch diffuse bruising on 
the lateral aspect and few bruises on back, of hand. The left 
wrist showed a slight deformity in the lateral condyle of the 
ulna and there was also a superficial fresh bruise in this area 
1/2 inch in diameter. There were multiple small 1/2 inch to 1 
inch fresh bruises in the left anterior lateral thigh. There 
was a 2 inch recent bruise to the left knee. There were recent 
bruises to the right upper leg in the area and right ankle. The 
anterior neck showed a small scratch. There was also 
superficial abrasion in left forehead, left brow and the left 
upper cheek area with an upward direction. There was white 
froth in the nasal oral area. There were recent bruises to the 
back of the left thigh. A few day old bruises were on the back 
of the right thigh and knee but there were fresh bruises and 
scratches to the right posterior leg. There were no petechiae 
in the conjunctiva of the eyes. The bruises showed no 
particular pattern. The blood in the chambers of the heart was 
fluid. The left anterior descending coronary artery showed 
focal narrowing by 30% with atherosclerotic plaque. The larynx, 
trachea, and bronchi were filled with large amount of white 
froth. The right lung weighed 800 grams and the left lung 
weighed 750 grams. The liver was unremarkable grossly and 
microscopically. The stomach contained 500 cc of semisolid 
partially digested food material which could be either chicken 
or fish-type substance. The small intestine contained 2 pills 
consistent with vitamin-like substance. There was a smell of 
alcohol in the stomach contents. The urinary bladder was filled 
with 300 cc of amber colored urine. The brain showed no injury 
and was examined by the neuropathologist. Microscopic findings 
of the brain showed no diagnostic features except for mild to 
moderate congestion. Microscopic sections of the right forearm, 
knee and right ankle showed fresh hemorrhage consistent with 
fresh bruise of superficial nature. Toxicology showed ethanol 
of 0.14 gms%. Ethchiorvynol and trichlorethanol were not 
detected. Caffeine was present at a concentration of 0.02mg%. 
No other neutrals were detected. Cocaine, codeine and morphine 
were not detected. Phencyclidine was not detected. 
Barbiturates were not detected. Freon 11 and 12, methane, 
butane, propane, hexane, and toluene were all not detected in

the head space study. The magnesium in the right heart serum 
was 11.7 mg/dL and chloride in the right heart was 106 mEq/L. 
Specific gravity in serum of right heart autopsy specimen 1.0063 
gm/mL . Propoxyphene was present at 0.07 mg% and cyclizine was 
present at 0.045 mg%. Phenothiazines were not detected. A 
sexual assault kit was collected at the Forensic Science Center 
by Mr. Njavro. Also hair samples were collected from head and 
arm areas. Dr. Noguchi collected nasal swabs during the 
postmortem exam. The specific gravity of the left heart serum 
was 1.040 gm/dL. The magnesium in the left heart blood was 22.5 
mg/dL and chloride was 154 mEq/L. 

Based on the autopsy findings, chemical tests result of high 
magnesium and chloride on the left heart compared to the right 
heart, the cause of death was established as drowning. Time of 
death was established to be around midnight of November 28, 
1981. Case was closed as accidental drowning by Drs . Noguchi, 
Kornblum and Choi . 



D iscussion a nd opinion by the c ur rent Chief Medic al Examiner- 



The autopsy findings, results of the chemical tests done on the 
right and left heart blood are all supportive of drowning. The 
only evidence available for review at this time was the 
histopathological slides taken during the autopsy of the bruises 
and liver and the neuropathology slides. Five items of evidence 
were collected and placed into the Department of Coroner 
evidence unit on November 30, 1981. 

A. An EDTA tube of blood was received at 1525 hours. 

B. Blood swatch was received at 1525 hours. 

C. Modified sexual assault kit was received at 1445 hours. 

D . Hair kit was received at 1445 hours. 

E. Pubic hair kit was received at 1445 hours. 

Ms. Sandberg, Acting Supervising Criminalist provided a detailed 
memorandum to Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner/ Interim Director on 
the status and evidence disposition, which will be an attachment 
to this report. However, medical evidence envelope containing 
prescription drugs belonging to the case was found (see form 3A 
in the autopsy report). This was released to the Sheriff's 
Department .

There are conflicting statements as to when the decedent went 
missing from the boat and whether there were verbal arguments 
between the decedent and her husband. It was clear from the 
restaurant manager's statement that the call about her missing 
from the Splendour came only at 1:30 am on November 29, 1981. 
The fact that her stomach contained 500 cc of partially digested 
food material supports the opinion of the time of death being 
around midnight, especially given the information that dinner 
was consumed between 8 and 9 pm on November 28, 1981. With the 
presence of fresh bruises in the upper extremities in the right 
forearm/left wrist area and a small scratch in the anterior 
neck, this Examiner is unable to exclude non-accidental 
mechanism causing these injuries. The Zodiac dinghy was not 
available for Sheriff's detectives for evaluation when they went 
to examine the Splendour with the new owner. The original 
theory of Mr. Miller that there were scratches on the starboard 
side of the dinghy could not be evaluated further, as no nail 
clipping was collected during the original autopsy examination. 
So this theory cannot be verified. Based on (a) the fact that 
she was wearing a blue and red plaid flannel nightgown, down 
jacket, socks with no underclothing, but had jewelry 
(ring/bracelet right hand, 3 rings on left hand and a chain 
around her waist) , (b) the intoxicated state, (c) lack of any 
life jacket, (d) dinghy having never been used, (e) her bladder 
still containing 300 cc of urine, (f) lack of history of any 
suicidal ideation or note, (g) the time of incident (around 
midnight) in darkness, this Medical Examiner is unable to 
exclude non-volitional, unplanned entry into the water. Also, 
given the temperature of the water and the time of death opined 
in autopsy report, it looks as though that Ms. Wood drowned 
within a short time of her entry into the water. The location 
of the bruises, the multiplicity of the bruises, lack of head 
trauma, or facial bruising support bruising having occurred 
prior to the entry into the water. Since there are many 
unanswered questions and limited additional evidence available 
for evaluation, it is opined by this Medical Examiner that the 
manner of death should be left as undetermined. The case was 
discussed with the former Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner Dr. 
Noguchi . Both Dr. Kornblum and Dr. Choi, who are the other 
Medical Examiners who handled the case, are deceased. The case 
could not be discussed with them.
