Los Angeles investigators reopened the case of Natalie Wood's death on Friday and said that Wood's husband Robert Wagner was not a suspect.
An old captain, Dennis Davern, on Friday presented the latest information that Wagner had a fight with Wood before she went missing and urged investigators to reopen the case.
However, John Corina, a LA county sheriff murder detective said Wood's death, which was deemed to be a drowning accident, has not changed.
On Nov. 29, 1981, Davern was drinking with the three stars - Wood, Wagner and fellow Hollywood A-lister Christopher Walken - who shared the yacht Splendour.
He told national television on Friday that he made a mistake by not telling the truth about the events leading to Wood's death.
This year is the 30-year anniversary of Wood's tragic death and Davern was deemed to make profit for this chance, but he denied it.
After Wood's death, Wagner and Wood's sister Lana Wood insisted the her death was anything more than an accident.
Lana wrote in a biography on her sister, What happened is that Natalie drank too much that night.
Wagner also wrote in an autobiography where he blamed himself for his wife's death.
Did I blame myself? If I had been there, I could have done something. But I wasn't there. I didn't see her, he wrote in the book.
Wood had received three-time Oscar nominee for Rebel Without a Cause, Splendor in the Grass and Love with the Proper Stranger.
Wood and Wagner were twice married, first in 1957. They remarried again in 1972, six years after their divorce.
