Like it or not, the reopening of the police investigation into the drowning of mega star Natalie Wood off the coast of Catalina Island is prompting news stories and headlines around the world and seared across the internet and bringing significant attention to the island.

A flood of new witnesses came forward after the case was reopened in 2011 and even now, there is new information developing in the case, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators suggest there are more witnesses out there, perhaps on the island, who know more than has been revealed about her mysterious death at 43.

As long as there are tips and leads to follow, detectives will pursue investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Natalie Wood. If you have information about this case, please contact Lieutenant John Corina or Homicide Bureau investigators at 323-890-5500.
