The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office is taking another look into the death of movie star Natalie Wood, who drowned in 1981 while boating off Catalina Island, ET has learned.

A rep for the L.A. Sheriff's Department tells ET that the case is being reopened after homicide investigators were contacted by "persons who have stated that they have additional information about Natalie Wood's drowning."

The Sheriff's Department plans to share that information with the media in a press conference tomorrow.

A rep for Natalie's widower, Robert Wagner, gave this statement to ET: "Although no one in the Wagner family has heard from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department about this matter, they fully support the efforts of the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. and trust they will evaluate whether any new information relating to the death of Natalie Wood Wagner is valid, and that it comes from a credible source or sources other than those simply trying to profit from the 30-year anniversary of her tragic death."
