Murder was done by lethal injection to prevent the actress from revealing her torrid affairs with Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy. A new book sensationally claims to have finally solved the mystery surrounding her death.
Marilyn Monroe’s death on August 4, 1962 was not a suicide but a murder orchestrated by Bobby Kennedy to silence her as she was about to reveal all the dirty Kennedy family secrets she kept logged in a little red diary.
Bobby did not act alone. He had co-conspirators in her murder — his brother-in-law, actor Peter Lawford, and Marilyn’s psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson who gave the star a fatal injection of pentobarbital to the heart.
Those are the explosive allegations detailed in a blockbuster new book by writers Jay Margolis, a long-time investigative reporter and Monroe expert, and Richard Buskin, a New York Times bestselling author of 30 non- fiction books.
The volume — The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed — claims to blow the lid off the world’s most notorious and much talked-about celebrity death through eyewitness testimony.
“Bobby Kennedy was determined to shut her up, regardless of the consequences,” Peter Lawford later revealed, according to the authors, feeling wracked with guilt over the star’s murder. “It was the craziest thing he ever did — and I was crazy enough to let it happen.”
It was a murder allegedly witnessed by ambulance attendant James C. Hall, who arrived at the film star’s home and saw Monroe’s psychiatrist Dr. Greenson inject Marilyn directly into her heart with undiluted pentobarbital, brutally breaking a rib with the needle. He was set up by Bobby to ‘take care’ of Marilyn.
Bobby Kennedy got involved in a messy sexual affair with Marilyn in the summer of 1962 when he was sent out to Los Angeles by his brother Jack to convince the screen goddess to stop calling the President at the White House. The President was not going to divorce Jackie and marry her.
But Bobby fell under her spell and slipped into the bedroom with Marilyn. “It wasn’t Bobby’s intention, but that evening they became lovers and spent the night in our guest bedroom,” Peter Lawford later revealed.
Marilyn shifted her attentions to Bobby and started calling the Department of Justice to get the Attorney General on the phone. She was now madly in love with Bobby, who had promised to marry her and leave Ethel, Lawford said, despite the Kennedy brothers ‘passing her around like a football’ and making her feel like a piece of meat.
But when Bobby began to pull away, Marilyn threatened Bobby with a press conference where she would reveal her illicit affairs with Jack and Bobby and all the dangerous secrets she knew about the Kennedys and had written in the little red diary she kept hidden.
Bobby demanded to know where the diary was. ‘We have to know’, he screamed at her, claim the authors. Marilyn was not going to give it up. Bobby’s response was to call Dr. Ralph Greenson, Marilyn’s psychiatrist, with whom she was also sleeping.
Peter Lawford had learned about her affair with Greenson when he listened to tapes from the recording devices hidden in Marilyn’s house by the FBI, among others. “Greenson had thus been set up by Bobby Kennedy to ‘take care’ of Marilyn”…the authors wrote.
