LOS ANGELES (AP) - Detectives want to re-interview the 87-year-old widower of actress Natalie Wood after new information has emerged about her 1981 death.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. John Corina said Monday investigators would like to speak with actor Robert Wagner about inconsistencies in his story of the night his wife died.

Wood's body was found floating off California's Catalina Island after a yachting excursion with Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and the boat captain.

Corina says many witnesses have come forward since the case was reopened in 2011, raising questions about Wagner's version of events. He is now considered a person of interest in the case.

Wagner's publicist and sheriff's officials say investigators haven't attempted to reach him since 2012.

Wood was nominated for three Academy Awards and starred in "West Side Story."
