In the very early hours of August 5, 1962, the Hollywood actress and international beauty icon Marilyn Monroe was discovered lifeless in her bed at her home in Brentwood, California. It was her housekeeper who first discovered her, and instead of calling the police, she phoned both Marilyn’s personal psychiatrist and her physician. In fact, it was a full 55 MINUTES LATER that the cops were finally notified.
Most people have come to accept Marilyn’s demise as just another Hollywood star who suffered a tragic death due to their dependency on drugs and alcohol, but others speculate that there were several suspicious people close to the star that might’ve been to blame.
We’ll take a look at some of the most famous suspects that conspirators suggest might’ve had something to gain from her passing, and try to answer what happened in those 55 minutes… and who would’ve wanted Marilyn dead?
SUSPECT #1: THE KENNEDY FAMILY
SUSPECT #2: THE C.I.A.
SUSPECT #3: THE MAFIA
SUSPECT #4: MARILYN’S ENTOURAGE
SUSPECT #5: PETER LAWFORD
