Skull Christopher Walken killed Natalie Wood?

I was unsure whether this would fit under Entertainment or Crime.

I came across this in a messageboard arguement on imdb.com. Apparently, someone believes that, not only is Walken gay, but that he killed Natalie Wood by in the 80s. Uh huh...right. The 'source' this guy quoted was from the following website:

www.celebrityhomicide.com

This whole thing is in audio, there is no written text aside from names of celeberity dead. Personally, I think it's a load of NFBSK. Could this possibly be true?

Walken was there. I don't think anyone thinks he's the one that caused her untimely demise. Most people that think her death was hastened think it was Robert Wagner who helped her overboard.

Oh, I know that Walken was there. But did he kill her? That's the question. He plays badass killers on film, but in real life, could he do it? Just something to ponder.

I've heard the whole "Christopher Walken killed Natalie Wood" thing before too, I just usually roll my eyes at it. There doesn't seem to be any evidence to support the theory other than, "he was there!" and "he's creepy!"

My theory is that Natalie Wood hastened Natalie Wood's death by trying to launch a small boat while drunk. Sad, very sad, but not a homicide.

What motive, if any, do they suggest? General marital problems, or something more specific?

General marital problems, with a fight that night + alcohol.

Exactly. There is another theory that ties into all of this. In that celebrity homicade site (see link of topic post) there is a statement that says

Quote:
Walken's marriage was a sham, Natalie, knew her husband was bi-sexual and Walken's true sexual preference for men. I feel she threatened to out both of them. There is some evidence, Natalie experimented with her own sex too. Wagner, coerced Walken, don't underestimate his powers of manipulation."

"Wagner coerced Walken to violence, he did not have the stomach to do this himself. Wagner is bi-sexual and very aware of his image......
What's next? CIA using mind control?

I guess we'll never know. We could kidnap Walken and reenact Marathon Man...

Me: Did you kill Natalie Wood?

Walken (duct taped to dentist chair) What? What are you talking about? Is this one of those hidden camera things? Or did you just watch Suicide Kings too much?

Me: ANSWER the question!! (pauses) Damn your hot...

If you're going to kidnap Christopher Walken, you should make him dance.
