The story quotes Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department telling “48 Hours” in an interview, “As we’ve investigated the case over the last six years, I think [Wagner is] more of a person of interest now. I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared.”
Deadline also writes that in the “48 Hours” report, which is set to air this Saturday, Feb. 3, “L.A.
