New report released on Natalie Wood mystery

A newly released report shows coroner's officials amended actress Natalie Wood's death certificate based on unanswered questions about bruises on her upper body but were lacking several pieces of evidence and could only conclude she drowned under undetermined circumstances more than 30 years ago.

Wood's death in 1981 has remained one of Hollywood's most enduring mysteries. Conflicting versions of what happened on a yacht with the Oscar-nominated actress, actor-husband Robert Wagner and their friend, actor Christopher Walken, have contributed to the confusion.

Wood's death certificate was amended last year to change her cause of death from drowning to "drowning and other undetermined factors," and the report details why changes were made.

The report does not alter the status of the case, which remains open.
