In’s exclusive preview clip from the upcoming episode of Dr. Phil, Splendour captain Dennis Davern, who was among the last people to see Wood alive, finally comes clean about his knowledge of the actress’ final moments — and reveals who he believes is responsible for her tragic death.

In a previous interview with hit podcast Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood, Davern said Wagner refused to let him leave his home in the months after the tragedy.

“It was just like I was in a prison,” he told podcast host Dylan Howard.

Wood disappeared from the family’s yacht Splendour on November 29, 1981, after a pleasure ride with Wagner and their friend Christopher Walken. Her dead body was discovered hours later one mile away from the boat.

The broadcast airs on Thursday at 3pm on WCBS.
