Hollywood's most mysterious deaths
The death of Hollywood star Natalie Wood has been the subject of much discussion since the tragic night she plunged into the icy waters of the Isthmus Cove in California, back in November 1981, while dining with husband Robert Wagner and co-star Christopher Walken.
The official word on the 'Rebel Without a Cause' star's end was 'accidental death by drowning', but not everyone is convinced. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have recently re-opened the case, and while Wagner and Walken are not suspects, the authorities (we assume) have new evidence that leads them to suspect foul play.
Wood's mysterious death isn't the only to haunt Hollywood, though. Throughout the years, there's been quite a few stories that seem to have come straight from a movie script.
Here's a run-down of some of the more intriguing cases...

'Johnny Stomp' was a Hollywood bodyguard and low-level mafia muscle who started an affair with Lana Turner in 1957 that ended in tragedy. Stompanato famously drew a gun on Sean Connery on a film set, after accusing him of having an affair with Turner (the future Bond coolly disarmed the hood and broke his jaw).
In '58, the couple (who had a tempestuous relationship), got into a physical fight and Turner’s daughter Cheryl Crane stabbed him to death. She was found guilty of 'Justifiable Homicide', however many say Lana actually did the deed, especially after she settled out of court with the Stompanato family when they sued her.
The Black Dahlia
In 1946, Elizabeth Scott was a beautiful 22 year-old aspiring actress from Boston with dreams of stardom. In 1947, she was dead. In one of the most gruesome crimes of the time, Scott's body was discovered horribly mutilated.
Hollywood's press went nuts for the story, painting the victim out to be a real-life femme fatale, dubbing her 'The Black Dahlia'. Despite the publicity, the case was never solved... Brian DePalma went on to make a rubbish film about it.
