Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials announced they were reopening their investigation into the death of actress Natalie Wood as a homicide. The coroner had ruled it an accidental drowning after the body of the 43-year-old actress was found floating in a Catalina cove in 1981.

          After nine months of further investigation, the Los Angeles County Chief Medical Examiner amended Wood’s death certificate and changed the cause of her death from accidental drowning to “drowning and other undetermined factors.” In 2013, the L.A. County coroner’s office offered a 10-page addendum to Wood’s autopsy report stating that some of the bruises on her body may have been sustained before she went into the water.
