Marilyn Wayne told the producers of "Fatal Voyage: The Secret Death of Natalie Wood" She "heard screams from a woman screaming for help." Wayne said in a statement in 2011 that she was with her son and a businessman slept on a boat when she heard the screams.
"Well, my son had a digital clock that we just gave him, so we kept the minute by minute time, I was on the deck and heard a woman screaming," Help me, someone help please I'm drowning, "she said.

The revelations come a week after Dennis Davern, the boat captain who was there the night that Wood died, said in the previous episode of the podcast he believed Wagner was responsible for her death and that the actor put an end to all search efforts.

Davern said it was him, not Wagner, who identified Wood's body.
