Robert Wagner now a "person of interest" in Natalie Wood's drowning death

The phrase "a person of interest" can mean that a potential suspect's accounts don't match the other witnesses, and two new witnesses now support the boat captain's claims that the two argued violently, and that Wagner was the last person with Wood.

CBS News says investigators want to talk to Wagner about Wood's 1981 drowning.

Oscar-winner Natalie Wood died in 1981 while on a yacht near Catalina Island with her husband, Robert Wagner, and her Brainstorm co-star Christopher Walken.

Police have never ruled her death a murder, but they reopened the case six years ago.

Corina tells 48 Hours' reporter Erin Moriarty he doesn't believe Wagner "has told the whole story".

"I remember her laugh, I remember her smell, and she was really into being a mom", Gregson Wagner said during an interview with "Good Morning America".

However, the autopsy revealed she had a.14 alcohol level and had taken painkillers on the night of her death. "I think he's constantly changed his story a little bit", Corina said of Wagner who did not provide a statement to CBS.

"His [Wagner] version of events just don't add up", says Carina.

He added that he thought Wagner was responsible for Wood's death.

Aaron Rodgers not consulted on Packers' QB teaching change
One of the Packers' priorities is re-signing Aaron Rodgers to a contract extension, as he is a free agent after the 2019 season. Van Pelt, who has since been hired by the Cincinnati Bengals, spent the last four seasons as Green Bay's quarterback coach.

"I think it's suspicious enough to make us think that something happened", Corina told 48 Hours.

"She looked like a victim of assault", Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Det.

As People reported, Wood, an actress known for her roles in projects like Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and West Side Story (1961), died on November 29, 1981. She and Wagner first married in 1957, divorced five years later, only to remarry again in 1972.

"It's a cover-up and I won't rest until Natalie gets justice", she said at the time. Somehow, she ended up in the water and drowned.

Moriarty and the "48 Hours" team have been covering the Wood case for six years and was the only news organization to capture the detectives searching the Splendour for clues.

"He said it appeared to him as though RJ shoved her away and she went overboard".

Wagner's attorney didn't immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Robert has been married to Jill St. John since 1990.

Wagner spoke out in 2016, 35 years after Wood's death, to insist it was a tragic accident which "shattered" him.

The original investigators believed Wood sustained the bruises after she fell from the yacht and tried to pull herself from the water into a rubber dinghy, which also showed scratch marks.

"Well, I think he does because he's the last one to see her", Corina replies. "She was going to bed".
