- “…When her affair with Bobby was ended, Marilyn became fearful for her life, telling her friend Robert Slatzer that Bobby had underworld killers in his employ—they had been assigned by secret elements of the CIA to perform assassinations and other “dirty tricks”
Bombshell: Sixty Years After Her Death, New Evidence Suggests Marilyn Monroe Was Murdered by Bobby Kennedy and LAPD Covered Up Murder
Greenson then allegedly took a poker from the fireplace, smashed the window and climbed into Monroe’s room. After seeing her dead body, he proclaimed “we’ve lost her.”
At 4:25 a.m. the police were called and Marilyn was taken to a Santa Monica hospital (St. John’s Hospital) where she was pronounced dead.
The Coroner, Dr. Theodore J. Curphey, ruled Marilyn’s death a suicide and no further police investigation was undertaken.
A new Netflix documentary, The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, and a book published by former LAPD officer Mike Rothmiller and Douglas Thompson, Bombshell: The Night Bobby Kennedy Killed Marilyn Monroe (London: Ad Lib Publishers, 2021), puncture the official narrative about Monroe’s death, detail corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and expose liberal icon Robert Kennedy as a murderer.
The Kennedy brothers’ sexual dalliances with Monroe were known to the FBI, LAPD and CIA because of surveillance carried out by Fred Otash, a private investigator who worked for all three agencies and who had been hired by Teamsters boss James Hoffa to “get dirt” on the Kennedys.
The LAPD’s Organized Crime Intelligence Division (OCID) compiled thousands of dossiers on political figures and celebrities to use for blackmail and other nefarious purposes.
Otash had bugged the Malibu home of Peter Lawford, an actor and brother-in-law to the Kennedys who was part of the “Rat Pack”—a collection of A-list Hollywood celebrities that included Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Dean Martin who lived the high life. Known as swingers around town, the Kennedy boys fit in very well with this crowd; Lawford’s home served as one of their sexual playgrounds.
All the fun and games threatened to come to an end when a scorned Marilyn threatened to hold a press conference and expose her affairs with the Kennedys—which would have shattered their wholesome public image.
Highly embarrassing to the Kennedys was Marilyn’s ties to left-wing Hollywood A-listers like her ex-husband Arthur Miller, who had been subpoenaed by the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) for alleged communist sympathies. (Miller wrote the play The Crucible about the Salem witch trials as a parable about the McCarthy era.)
Otash’s surveillance tapes furthermore suggest that President Kennedy—whom she nicknamed “the General”—had been discussing nuclear issues with Marilyn who had an interest in foreign relations and divulged classified national security information—including plans to invade Cuba and increase the U.S. troop presence in Vietnam.
Marilyn wrote in her diary that “John does not like Fidel C and he will be gone soon,” and that Kennedy “will soon be sending more men to Vietnam…The Communists must be stopped. It will be a long war.”
This is not information that Marilyn should have been privy to.
Marilyn also wrote in her diary that Bobby had told her that Jack had let him handle the Bay of Pigs invasion because Jack had taken medication for his back and wasn’t feeling well at the time. The diary further included a note on South Vietnamese Premier Ngô Đình Diệm, making it apparent that he would be overthrown [in a coup that helped precipitate the Vietnam War].
Marilyn additionally wrote about Murder Inc. and about being told by Bobby that “he was powerful enough to have people taken care of [murdered] if they got in his way.”
On the night of Marilyn’s death, the file cabinets in her guesthouse were significantly broken into and her diary was confiscated along with love letters between her and Bobby.
A Star Is Born
Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Marilyn overcame a troubled childhood in which she was left an orphan. She began her acting career as a pin-up model during World War II and experienced her first big break when Hollywood agent Johnny Hyde helped her secure a part in The Asphalt Jungle (1950).
No “dumb blond,” Marilyn was smart and developed left-wing political views. After marrying Arthur Miller in 1956, syndicated columnist Walter Winchell wrote that “America’s best known blonde moving picture star is now the darling of the left-wing intelligentsia.”
In 1953, Marilyn starred in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and “How to Marry a Millionaire” and was in the first issue of Playboy Magazine in December 1953.
A month later, she married Yankee star Joe DiMaggio, becoming half of the best known couple in the country.
Marilyn’s fame further rose as the star of Billy Wilder’s The Seven Year Itch (1955), in which she played a young woman tantalizing her married neighbor.
In 1959, Monroe won a Golden Globe award for best comedy/musical actress for Wilder’s film Some Like It Hot (1959), which cast her as a sultry singer who runs into two cross-dressing musicians evading the mob (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon).
Monroe also won critical acclaim for playing a gold digger in How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), a femme fatale in Niagara (1953), a showgirl in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), a saloon singer in Bus Stop (1956), and a divorcee in The Misfits (1961).
Despite their liberal veneer, the Kennedy clan could be ruthless, especially when it came to protecting their political dynasty.
The 2017 film Chappaquidick depicts how the family assembled a team of luminaries to try to cover up Ted Kennedy’s role in the killing of one of Bobby Kennedy’s former secretaries, Mary Jo Kopechne, after Ted drove his car off a pier on Cape Cod. Kennedy had swam to safety, caring more about himself and his career than the life of the young woman.
