Dennis Davern, former captain of a ship called the Splendor, alleges that actor Robert Wagner was responsible for the 1981 death of actress Natalie Wood.

The accusation comes almost 30 years to the date of the death of the actress, who was initially determined to have fallen overboard during a yacht cruise with husband Robert Wagner and "Brainstorm" costar Christopher Walken.

Davern now admits that he lied to police and "not telling the honest truth in a police report." The captain's allegations have led to the re-opening of Natalie Wood's death investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Davern claims he isn't trying to profit off the anniversary of Wood's death. Wagner issued a statement saying that he supports the new investigation and hoped the lead was credible and was not "simply trying to profit from the 30-year anniversary of her tragic death."

Natalie Wood died at the age of 43. She starred in the iconic musical "West Side Story" and "Rebel Without a Cause." Wood was married to Robert Wagner twice, first in 1957, the marriage lasted 6 years. They divorced and married again in 1972.

Do you think Dennis Davern is telling the truth or is he out to make a profit on the anniversary of Natalie Wood's death?
