Natalie Wood Raped Before Murder

SCREEN siren Natalie Wood was raped shortly before her murder off California’s Catalina Island more than three decades ago!

The bombshell new revelation was dropped by Natalie’s sister Lana, who says she learned authorities performed a rape kit on the body of the then-43-year-old West Side Story beauty after she was found floating in the Pacific Ocean on Nov. 29, 1981.

Former Bond gal Lana, now 71, was first told no rape kit was done, but has since learned the results and Natalie’s nail ­clippings, which would have DNA from her attacker, have mysteriously vanished.
