Wood's sister Lana, 71, said she was pleased after Wagner was named a "person of interest" in her "suspicious" death.
The Los Angeles County's Sheriff's Department stated that they received more leads since CBS aired a special 48 Hours investigation piece about Wood's death. "He's always been a person of interest because he was the last one with her". As a result of the new witnesses - which include acquaintances of the couple, people staying on Catalina Island, and people near the boat where Natalie drowned - investigators have re-created a timeline of the events leading to her death.
Law enforcement is now seeking more witnesses in the death of the Hollywood icon.
"We're closer to understanding what happened", Los Angeles Police Department detective John Corina, who has been working on this case for decades, told Variety.
And if you can help them figure out why movie star Natalie Wood drowned that night - and especially if any current persons of interest had something to do with it - then maybe investigators won't press you too hard on why you didn't say anything in 1981. Then Natalie and Robert Wagner end up on the back of the boat arguing, and it goes quiet.

"We can't make him".
The mystery of the death of acclaimed actress Natalie Wood has endured for almost four decades as the investigation has ebbed and flowed like the tides off a California island where her body was found floating on Thanksgiving weekend 1981. But the case was reopened in 2011 after the captain said he heard the couple arguing the night of her disappearance.
Before becoming the subject of a Hollywood mystery, Natalie Wood was considered one of the most lovely and talented women in the world. She was said to have had a lifelong fear of drowning and dark water. "Time is our enemy".
On Monday, following another boost in lurid publicity about the case provided by CBS News' 48 Hours on Saturday, a team of sheriff's detectives appeared at a press conference in Los Angeles to appeal for somebody - anybody - to come forward to help them explain the case they're convinced is "suspicious" but they've been unable to solve for almost four decades.
"Over 100 people came forward" after the department gave a press conference in 2011, and some of those tips were valuable, he said. In 2012, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office amended the death certificate, changing the manner of death from an accidental drowning to "drowning and other undetermined factors". She was a child actor who starred in "Miracle on 34th Street" and the iconic "Rebel Without a Cause".

The 49-year-old was also found guilty of embezzlement, hiding assets overseas, concealing profit from criminal acts and perjury. Lee was handed a five-year sentence after a six-month trial over a scandal that brought down the then president, Park Geun-hye.
Corina also confirmed Wood's body had bruises. "You hear about things happening to people - they slip in the bathtub, fall down the stairs, step off the curb in London because they think that the cars come the other way - and they die". More than 36 years later, investigators are looking to question her husband, saying his account doesn't "add up".
His attorney has said he fully cooperated with investigators.
Two years later, Wood divorced Gregson and remarried Wagner.
Why Has the Case Been Reopened? Wagner wanted to move the boat at night, but Wood didn't want him to.
He claimed that Wagner's story has changed over the years, and said that Wagner did not immediately attempt to look for her once he determined that she was not on the boat.
