Dennis Davern, captain of the boat off of which Natalie Wood drowned, wrote a 2009 book about the incident which contradicts the account of Wood's husband Robert Wagner.
The captain of the boat off of which actress Natalie Wood drowned is also the co-author of the book “Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour” in which he alleges that her husband Robert Wagner is responsible for her death.
“I would say so,” Dennis Davern said when asked if he thought Wagner was responsible for Wood’s death. “Yes.”
Davern, captain of the Splendour, the yacht owned by Wood and Wagner, said on Today this morning that the details he’s sharing now about the night Wood drowned are all in his book, which was published in 2009. Sheriff Lee Baca of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told The Los Angeles Times that the investigation is being reopened.
Davern said he had been untruthful to police when asked originally about the details of the night on the Splendour.
“I made some terrible decisions and mistakes,” he said on "Today." “I did lie on a report several years ago.”
