I remember when this happened. I always found it odd that they came to a conclusion rather quickly. They stated an apparent drowning and I always wondered what was being overlooked or swept under the rug. I realize it could, in fact, have been an accidental drowning, but because she was scared of the water, I was simply puzzled.
How many were actually on the yacht?

Was Christopher Walken with John Belushi near the end? I sense another drug and alcohol fed fight/death. Christopher Walken appeared in alot of movies but I don't think he became the mega star he was touted to be. Perhaps studios and agents knew the real deal as they did for Wagner. It's pretty bad when you are doing reverse mortgage commercials which frequently have a negative conotation.

A female, Cathy Smith, was charged with supplying the drugs to John. I'm not sure if she was with him or if he was alone when he died. Sad and senseless.

I remember that name now. What I should've of asked did Christopher Walken party with John Belushi in his final year or two. I looked it up they said Robin Williams and Robert Dinero were said to have partied with him. i thought Walken ran with that crowd.

I think drugs were not only involved the fight and Natilee's death but I think the presence & possession of drugs were one of the reasons for the delay in notifying authorities. They were scared to get nailed with a possession charge or even worse, perhaps they had more than 'personal use' on board. They're already admitting to qualudes. It was the cocaine 80s. They panicked thinking the presence of illegal drugs would get them into further trouble and ruin their reputations.

Good point. I wonder if an autopsy was performed on her and if they tested for drugs in her system. If she was that messed up, maybe it truly was an accident. But one lady reported hearing a woman scream for help. I can't but wonder how she could hear and the guys on the yacht couldn't. Voices carry, huh?
