Wood was with Wagner and a friend, actor Christopher Walken, the night she died. The trio had dinner at an exclusive restaurant before returning to their boat around 10 pm. Wood’s body was found later the next day and when questioned, Wagner told police that Wood left the boat in a rubber dingy after he and Walken had an argument concerning her career. Police reopened the investigation a little over six years ago when new evidence, namely a startling admission by the boat’s captain, was offered that contradicted the accidental nature of Wood’s death.
