Interesting Diagram for Natalie Wood Case

This is a diagram Dr. Lyndon Taylor created about 10 years ago. His way of simplifying things made it easy to see that if the authorities had done just a little more investigating all of these components may have surfaced. Lyn cannot understand how all these factors were overlooked. This diagram was his way to show the mockery of justice in Natalie's case. I had wanted this in the book on its own page, but again, it was something bounced by the editors.


  1. "Wagner taunts her" is listed on the diagram. I know Marilyn has mentioned a voice speaking in that vein. So, where was Dennis? Did he hear Wagner do that? If so, they both would have known where she was. Maybe I have the sequence wrong. Maybe it was before Dennis joined Wagner on deck. Can you shed any light on this particular subject?

  2. Lyn Taylor created this diagram over 10 years ago from information HE read and gathered (yes, there were many people out there who cared about Natalie and the inept investigation into her death). Lyn showed me the diagram when we met.

    "Wagner taunts her" probably comes from Finstad's book NATASHA. As explained many times, Dennis was on the bridge and had music playing to try to cover the loud arguing on the deck. No, Dennis did not hear or see When Natalie was in the water. It is Marilyn Wayne who heard Natalie's cries for help, and who heard a man's voice "tauntingly" say, "We're coming to get you" -- (interestingly, isn't it Wagner who always uses "we" when referring to situations it's only "he"-- maybe he has multiple selfs because he rarely uses "we" appropriately).

    Marilyn claims she is positive the voices she heard were coming from the Splendour. She doesn't know where the music was coming from as it just seemed to "be everywhere" and she thought the music was coming from a different direction or the beach. Lyn Taylor was closer to the beach ans swears there was no beach activity. Marilyn was much closer to the Splendour than Lyn Taylor's boat was (Three times closer..to put it in perspective, Marilyn was a neighboring boat, next door with about 70 feet of space between them, and Lyn Taylor was a "block" away.)

    Once again, Dennis's ears were right next to the radio blasting music, and he did not hear Natalie's cries for help.

    What are the odds two women were crying for help from drowning that night?

  3. LOL, Marti, I just can't help it! You hit the nail on the head here too. Wagner always uses "we" when talking about his own stupid decisions or actions, as if he's not guilty all by his lonesome self. Pitiful!

  4. Yes, Wagner says "we" frequently. And it helps keep things confusing and unclear.

    "Well, we think this is what might have happened to Natalie..."

    "The night we lost Natalie..." There are so many other examples, too, and it just underscores his phoniness.

    Hmmmm, Wagner, you THINK this is what might have happened to your wife? Why didn't you try to find out FOR SURE, when you have had the numerous chances, from many, many people who could've helped you do just that?

    Why would anyone be okay with living for almost 30 years of not knowing what happened to his "beloved wife?" Instead he offers up "We think this" or "We suspect that."

    It's like O.J. Simpson, who claimed he would try to find the "real killers," yet he made no attempt to do so. (Or maybe he thought he'd find them on the golf courses in Florida). Simpson didn't need to find out--neither did Wagner.

    They already knew everything.

  5. Marti -
    How was the autopsy report changed?
    This is news to me!
