Please Let Natalie Wood Rest In Peace!

Natalie Wood is one of my most beloved actors of all time. She was not only beautiful but also had a brilliant mind and incredible talent. I was in Sydney in 1981 when her death by drowning was announced. It was a huge shock. Now over 30 years later the case is reopened and we are told that she might have been murdered. I do not “buy” the murder theory. It has been clearly established that Robert Wagner, Christopher Walken, and Natalie were drunk that night. Most likely they were also “loaded” on drugs. Even if some struggle developed and somehow Natalie was pushed off the boat it is, at best, still an accident or ,at worst, a manslaughter case for either Robert Wagner or Christopher Walken or both. Manslaughter has a statute of limitations of 5-7 years. It’s not like murder that has no statute of limitations. The ex-ship captain who “came forward” with startling new allegations 30 years later is looking for a multi-million dollar book deal. The LA County Sheriff’s Office is enjoying all of the publicity. Please let this dear, beautiful and brilliant lady rest in peace and be forever in all of our thoughts as a beautiful and a special spirit.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
