An acount from an ‘ear witness’ has come to light in the newly re-opened case over Natalie Wood’s death while yachting off the coast of Catalina island with her husband Robert Wagner and actor Christopher Walken. The details she gives are shocking, and they’ve been ignored for 30 years.
In a sworn statement submitted to the LA Sheriff’s department, Marilyn Wayne, who was boating nearby said: "My cabin window was open. A woman’s voice, crying for help, awakened John and awakened me. ‘Help me, someone please help me, I’m drowning,’ we heard repeatedly."
She also claims to have heard someone call out, "Oh, hold on, we’re coming to get you."
What’s even creepier and more damning? At the time, Wayne worked as a stockbroker at an LA firm servicing Wagner. She says in her statement:
"I had a ‘client box’ designed for clients to drop off their messages through a slot in the front. The boxes were opened in the back, labeled by broker name on each end. Three days after Natalie died, I found a scribbled message on a torn piece of paper in my box that read, ‘If you value your life, keep quiet about what you know.’”
Innocent until proven guilty, and all that.
