"I Don't Think Natalie Fell"
Lana Wood's telling last statement at the end of her interview on "Piers Morgan", despite her insisting that she believes that Robert Wagner didn't mean to hurt her sister Natalie, is very compelling. Although she clearly chose her words carefully as to avoid compromising the investigation and possibly to avoid more negative reaction from her former-brother-in-law, Lana is and has been an important part of bringing the case to national and international attention once again.
I've seen some individuals on the internet (some of which are Robert Wagner fans, no doubt) who ask why did they bother to reopen the case all these years later, and the answer is simple: because the case warrants a second look, since the original investigation ended after three days and it was not looked at throughly. The truth, and justice need to be served, and the pain and grief does not end for the victim's loved ones. They can't forget. While this new information will undoubtedly open old wounds, Natalie's family deserves to know the truth, and they have a right to know. Wagner has had all the rights and a voice, while Natalie been deprived of that. It's long overdue to for her dignity to be restored and for giving her voice back. I give my full support to Marti Rulli, Dennis Davern, Lana Wood, Marilyn Wayne and many others who were instrumental in getting Natalie's case reopened and bringing the suppressed evidence and eyewitness accounts to public attention. May your efforts not be in vain and may Natalie finally rest.
