A New Documentary on the Orchestrated Murder of a Hollywood Icon
55 years after her death, people remember Marilyn Monroe for her ditzy humor, buxom brand of beauty and classic white dress from The Seven Year Itch. She remains a revered legend who changed Hollywood and influenced generations with her charm and contagious persona.
On August 5th, 1962, at the age of 36, Marilyn died in her Brentwood, California home. She was found naked, lying facedown on her bed. Investigators ruled her death a "probable suicide", and the coroner considered it an "accidental barbiturate overdose". Suspicion has always surrounded her death, with many claiming Monroe may have been murdered.
The time has come for us to find answers and clear Marilyn's name by kicking off our own investigation--the first since 1982--to be chronicled in a new documentary, "The Secret Death of Marilyn Monroe." We'll talk to the people who knew her best, as well as those tied to the case. We're also calling on you, the public, to get involved! But first, here's what you need to know about her final days.
Once known as Norma Jean Mortensen, Marilyn Monroe had become a bonafide international sex symbol. Her life seemed glamorous and promising, but beneath her success lay dark secrets that could've shaken the world to its core...all loaded into her little red diary.
Since that fateful evening in 1962, there have been reports that Marilyn's death was anything but a "probable suicide". Evidence put forth by those who were there when she died unequivocally points to murder. Most shocking of all, it's been said the killing was ordered by none other than Robert "Bobby" Kennedy.
It's well known that Marilyn had affairs with both Bobby and his brother, President John F Kennedy, both of which ended on a sour note. Allegedly frustrated by the failed relationships, Marilyn threatened to go public with the sensitive information they had revealed to her, which she noted in her diary. To add insult to injury, it was also rumored that she visited Fidel Castro in Cuba at a time when the country was at bitter odds with the United States. Simply put, Marilyn knew too much; she had become a serious international threat. Bobby was desperate to silence her for good, and collect the fiery notebook at the centre of it all.
This powerful accusation against Kennedy has been put forth by many, but most notably, JFK's brother-in-law, the late Peter Lawford. According to interviews and investigation connected to the book “The murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed, he lived with deep guilt, having stood by Bobby as he orchestrated the murder and escaped unscathed.
Apparently, Lawford wasn't the only one who witnessed the murder unfold. Private detective Fred Otash--who is said to have bugged Marilyn's house at Kennedy's request--claimed there were five people present that August night. Three of those witnesses, including Lawford, ambulance attendants James Edwin Hall and Murray Liebowitz, said it was Monroe's psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, who delivered the fatal dose of undiluted pentobarbital--as instructed by Bobby. They stated he injected the barbiturate directly into her heart, brutally breaking a rib along the way. Don Fraser of Arcadia, California, a state-Lincensed polygraph examiner who majored in police science at the University of South Carolina confirmed that Hall underwent 14 lie detectors tests, which he passed with flying colors.
In closely examining this strange case, the evidence doesn't quite add up. The autopsy states Monroe's colon showed discoloration, meaning the barbiturate could have been administered via enema, not orally. Ambulance attendant Hall also revealed there was no vomit in sight, which is unusual for an overdose. Most heartbreaking of all, Marilyn was the happiest she had ever been days before her death. She was back to working at FOX and was inspired to become a more serious actress.
So what does a 29-year-old woman from Norway have to do with this mystery? Well, I'm not related to Marilyn in any way, but I've always felt a profound connection to her.
My name is Kristine Fredheim and I'm a spiritual advisor, psychic medium and writer. Marilyn was the first spirit I ever communicated with when I was a toddler. Her presence has been powerful throughout my entire life. My parents didn't know what to make of my claims, until I pointed her out on TV at only 6-years-old.
I always knew Marilyn had been murdered. Through countless meditations and sessions with her, I learned how it happened and who was responsible. The valuable information I've garnered over time must finally be validated, so that we can unveil the truth and get closure on this, the 55th anniversary of her death. That means finding the elusive red diary, allegedly last seen by deputy coroner Lionel Grandson, whom is believed to have been coerced into falsely singing her death certificate, according to author Milo Speriglio.
Now, here's where you come in: I want to crack this half century-old case together. We can make a difference and confirm the stunning allegations that circulate to this very day.
