The L.A. County Sheriff's Office is reopening its investigation into the death of movie star Natalie Wood, who drowned in 1981 while boating off the California coast.
Homicide investigators are reexamining one of Hollywood's most enduring mysteries after someone with "additional information" about the drowning contacted them.
Authorities didn't provide further details late Thursday, but more information will surely be made available soon as the case is reopened and actively pursued.
Last year, the star's sister, Lana Wood, and the captain of the yacht on which Wood sailed with her husband, actor Robert Wagner, asked officials to reopen the case.
On Thursday, L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Benjamin Grubb couldn't say whether the sister and the yacht captain have prompted the renewed investigation.
Natalie Wood's body was found floating in the water about a mile away from the yacht, near Catalina Island, in a long nightgown, socks, and a down jacket.
The autopsy report showed that Wood had suffered two dozen bruises on her body, including a facial abrasion on her left cheek, and bruises on her arms.
In 2010, Lana Wood said she believes a heated argument between her sister and Wagner, who can be seen on next week's NCIS, preceded Wood's drowning.
She told CNN last year she does not suspect foul play, however.
