Here in India, people do recognise Marilyn Monroe. If not by the name, then surely as the beauty in the iconic picture below.
Marilyn Monroe was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. She was also famous for her flings with rich and powerful people in politics. At one time she was having a secret affair with JFK, and then his brother Bobby, while also bedding Dr Greenson.
On August 5, 1962 , Marilyn Monroe was found dead at her home at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California. The reason for the death was an accidental drug overdose. A theory which was not countered much at that time, as Monroe was reported to be suffering from depression as she struggled with the failure of three marriages and was unhappy with she being typecast as a sex symbol. But many people to this day believe that it was a murder. Even I read an article some years ago on such speculations.
A new book, titled, ‘The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed‘ by Jay Margolis and Richard Buskin has claimed that the actress did not committed suicide, in fact she was murdered.
The authors of the book allege that Robert Kennedy, Ralph Greenson and Peter Lawford pre-planned 36-year-old actress’ murder in order to shut her up, the Daily Express reported. Why ? As she threatened to expose them. And such a thing would have been a devastating development for any politician.
The new book claims to reveal the truth of Marilyn’s death.
Nevertheless, why the book authors think that was a murder, is completely described in the book.
About the Book
Marilyn Monroe died under suspicious circumstances on the night of August 4, 1962. In The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed, renowned MM expert Jay Margolis and New York Times bestselling author Richard Buskin finally lay to rest more than fifty years of wild speculation and misguided assertions by actually naming the screen goddess’s killer. At the same time, they use the testimony of eyewitnesses to describe exactly what took place inside her house on Fifth Helena Drive in Los Angeles’s Brentwood neighborhood.
Implicating Bobby Kennedy in the commission of Monroe’s murder, this is the first book to name the LAPD officers who accompanied the Attorney General to her home, provide details about how the Kennedys used bribes to silence one of the ambulance drivers, and specify how the subsequent cover-up was aided by a noted pathologist’s outrageous lies. This blockbuster volume blows the lid off the world’s most notorious and talked-about celebrity death, and in the process also exposes the third gunman in the pantry who delivered the fatal bullet to the back of RFK’s head — and the third gunman’s female accomplice who, until now, has only been known to the LAPD and the FBI as “the girl in the polka-dot dress.”
