Throughout history we have had many great questions left aging in the dust. What happened here? Who did this crime? Why did this happen? How did it happen? We ask these questions only to be eating the remnants of the past. One great conundrum that remains unknown to this very day, is how did Marilyn Monroe actually die? Many people believe she accidently overdosed, other people say it was a suicide, and the most popular belief is that Marilyn was murdered! These three theories have neither been proven nor has her case been cracked, yet they all seem logical in what happened. Belief number one. Accidental overdose. Marilyn had a history of being emotionally disturbed. She has had a history of popping pills as well. A friend of Marilyn’s, named…show more content…
He said, "She was drinking champagne and straight vodka and occasionally popping a pill," Bacon told The Times. "I said, 'Marilyn, the combination of pills and alcohol will kill you. ' And she said, 'It hasn 't killed me yet. ' Then she took another drink and popped another pill.”- (MarilynMonroe.net) Since Marilyn, was emotionally disturbed, she was in therapy and was seeing a psychiatrist about her issues in life. His name was Dr. Greenson, he had their sessions recorded, and he listened to Monroe rant about her life. It was Marilyn’s housekeeper who saw her bedroom light on at 3:30 A.M.

When the autopsy was done, and no pills were found in her stomach, and no glass was found on the crime scene, they searched even further, and found enema. So someone had to inject Marilyn with a lethal dosage of this substance. But why would the Kennedy’s want to kill Marilyn Monroe? Well it is said that Marilyn was threatening to give out political secrets, that could damage the Kennedy’s reputation. So they had no other choice, but to murder the star. But on the contrary, in the tapes that Dr. Greenson recorded in their therapy, there is no proof that Marilyn and John F. Kennedy were having an affair. “In the tapes, Monroe heaps praise on Kennedy, and there is no suggestion that the two were ever lovers. "This man is going to change our country," she says of JFK, adding, "He will transform America today like FDR did in the '30s."-(MarilynMonroe.net) And she said she had no space for JFK’s brother either, but by the looks of what she said, there was possibly something between Robert and her. "As you see, there is no room in my life for him. I guess I don 't have the courage to face up to it and hurt him. I want someone else to tell him it 's over. I tried to get the president to do it, but I couldn 't reach him."-
