In a Nov. 25, 1959 file photo, Natalie Wood and her husband Robert Wagner are made up for their roles in "All The Fine Young Cannibals," in Los Angeles. Dennis Davern, captain of the yacht Splendour, which Wood was aboard at the time of her death, said on national TV Friday, Nov. 18, 2011 that he lied to investigators about Natalie Wood's mysterious death 30 years ago and blames the actress' husband at the time, Robert Wagner, for her drowning in the ocean off Southern California.

In 1981, the actress drowned off the coast of Catalina Island, while a weekend boating trip with her husband Robert Wagner and actor Christopher Walken. 

Yesterday the L.A. coroner released a new report, changing the cause of her death from "accidental drowning" to "drowning and other undetermined factors."
