Sign Natalie Wood Petition

Please sign or pass on this petition before it is submitted.
Reopen Investigation of Natalie Wood's death Petition

In the planning stages for GNGS 2011:

Case detectives and Dr. Thomas Noguchi's silence in the wake of the evidence presented in GNGS leaves a vaccum waiting to be filled by a detailed, profesional review of the medical evidence. A consulting Medical Examiner and Homicide Investigator will review the Wood case.
The brief, superficial investigation conducted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. will be publicly revealed as insufficient. Wagner and Walken were treated as victims at the scene of Wood's death, and their celebrity status overrode any consideration that they be interrogated and body-checked. Homicide 101 dictates that the majority of suspicious deaths are connected to someone close to the victim. The second rule of homicide demands that investigators follow the evidence. Investigators in the Wood case made the classic error of quickly surmising a scenario or theory and then presented the limited evidence to support their premise. All evidence that pointed in other directions was not pursued, or worse, deliberatley ignored. 

An official request will be legally filed to request the case be reopened. The online petition and all of its comments will be submitted to indicate that many "voices" believe the Wood case deserves a review. The online petiton comments are compelling and deserve to be recognized.

These actions will be journaled and documented in plans for an in-depth study into the case to be followed by a major news venue. Key witnesses the investigators ignored and/or did not pursue will participate.

Goal: Results will not come overnight, but by the 30th anniversary of Natalie's death, we will have an official answer from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department about their official stand in the case and all details pertaining to the Wood case will have had professional, released data on findings. Credible, important professionals will be involved in this process.

In the meantime, all segments of media will be informed of our procedures. Whatever you will read in the media will be explained or elaborated at this blog. You will be able to rely on this blog for the truth and details of progress and effort to correct this important part of Hollywood history.

For those interested in the Natalie Wood case, your concern is appreciated. Her case is an important one, especially after 30 years of avoidance of providing Natalie Wood the attention and justice she deserves.

Thank you for caring about this important case. Thank you to each and every one of you who have signed the petition. If you haven't please do so.


  1. Exciting plans! I do hope the petition won't be turned in before your book makes a big resurgence. Once people have had a chance to read it, who knows how many signatures the petition could achieve? Especially if the news starts talking about it. I know you have been extraordinarily patient, but I hope you and James V will give the petition time to really take off.

  2. An excellent point, but the petition WILL stay online and anyone can sign at any time, even after it is submitted. Thanks, Marti

  3. Good point Marti, the petition, this blog, the kindle version of GNGS will all become part of history and will be seen by as many generations of people as there are left on Earth for thousands of years to come. AS long as the internet survives Natalie will have a voice because of you. It makes me shudder to think about it.

  4. I agree completely. It's admirable that you continue to pursue the Wood closed case to be reopened, but the fact remians, whether or not you achieve your goal, the facts and truth stays available for the ages with GNGS. Your book could be a #1 bestseller in 2020 or 2050 or at any given point there's a resurgence of interest in Hollywood history. That's a fascinating thing, to have presented a book that will at any given time achieve a peak. I would be awful proud if I were you, and I hope you always bear that in mind. I wish you luck this year.

  5. Thanks, Everyone. GNGS sells consistently and that's all it takes. If it gets passed on or loaned out, more and more people will read about the truth and eventually accept it. That's a good goal accomplished, as I truly believe Natalie deserves the truth attached to her legend. Someone said a very wise thing to me recently: It's just as important to keep the memory of Natalie's career and life alive as is it to correct the lies about the weekend she died. It's all important. So, please be sure to let younger people know about one of Hollywood's greatest performers and stars: Natalie Wood.

  6. Godspeed Marti, the death of Natalie Wood needs resolution.


  7. I completely agree with keeping not only Natalie's memory alive as well as getting the truth of the night she tragically died out there.

    I was only two years old when Natalie died, so obviously I'm not old enough to have followed her career when she was alive. I was first introduced to Natalie and her films as a teen. I was already interested in classic Hollywood (we had the LP soundtrack of the film version of "West Side Story" around the house when I was growing up), and back then A&E aired films from the 50s, 60s and 70s. I first saw "Rebel Without A Cause", "Splendor In The Grass", "Sex And The Single Girl" and "Inside Daisy Clover" (in addition to other films of that period) and the E! True Hollywood Story on her life at that time. In that program, there were hints dropped that even at the time there were suspicions of foul play. It didn't come right out and say Wagner was negligent in her death, but it didn't need to. I didn't want to believe it because I hated to think (and still do) that anyone would do that to another person, let alone someone who had a great fear of water. I first came across Lana's book around that time. I was delighted when "Natasha" was published and felt that recognition of Natalie for the actress and human being she was was long overdue. I'm grateful to GNGS for those same reasons, as well as seeing the excuses and lies exposed and investigated the way this case should have been from the beginning.

    Sorry for the long-winded post, but the point I'm trying to make is that I was (and am) one of the younger people who has been made aware of Natalie and I believe that should continue. There is a touchingly vulnerable quality about her and her that draws people in. The truth needs to be known about her death and the circumstances surrounding it as well. Wagner would rather let people believe Natalie was drunk and fell overboard than be honest about that night. For that reason alone GNGS and this petition should be brought to the attention to as many people as possible. And the fact that the public now has that choice and knowledge is due in large part to you and Dennis. Thank you again, Marti.

  8. And thank you, Colleen, for recognizing the importance of GNGS. I agree with every word you have written here, and it is NOT long-winded at all. These are things that do need to be said. I know I become repetitive often, but new people will constantly come across the unforgettable Natalie Wood, and when they do, many might not take the time to "read back" on posts and issues, etc. Therefore, I occasionally repeat important details and issues.

    I feel satisfied that GNGS shows Natalie as the dear woman, mother, actress and friend she was to many, as well as exposes the truth about her untimely, unnecessary death, but I hope more people will read about this important story and that Natalie's tragedy will one day soon be corrected in that official, miswritten part of Hollywood history.

    Sorry I didn't answer you yesterday. I'm nursing a bit of a cold, but feeling much better today. Thank you for your comment. It is appreciated. Marti

  9. Anyone that is a fan of Natalie's will always pass on their admiration and respect for her talent. My daughter has known since a young age that I almost named her Natasha and why. Resolution in the cause of her death will also bring a public awareness to Natalie and her legacy. I think a new generation will be curious and want to know more about her. Wagner may want her memory buried but I think a new appreciation of Natalie is at hand.
