Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her bedroom on 4th August 1962, aged just 36. Next to her was an empty bottle of sleeping pills, leading to the conclusion that she had suffered an overdose – either intentionally or accidentally.

Various theories have sprung up surrounding Marilyn’s death. One is that she took her own life after being told that the President, John F. Kennedy, wanted to end their affair.

Other more sinister theories suggest that Marilyn’s death was no suicide. Some allege that her links to the Kennedy family and to Mafia boss, Sam Giancana, made her a threat to national security and this lead to her mysterious demise.

Famous ppl die unfamously.....
Monroe was found dead by her housekeeper Eunice Murray, in the middle of the night, on August 5, 1962. Murray said she noticed the phone cord under Marilyn's door, which was unusual because she never slept with her phone in her room. This worried Murray, so she called Marilyn's psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Greenson broke a window to get into Marilyn's home, and then upon discovering her sprawled on her bed with a phone clutched in her right hand, called Marilyn's internist Dr. Engelberg. Engelberg listened for a heartbeat, and when there was not one, called the police.

Murray and doctors Greenson and Engelberg claim that Marilyn was found at 3:30 a.m. However Natalie Jacobs, wife of Marilyn's spokesman Arthur Jacobs, said she found out about Marilyn's death while at a concert well before 11:00 p.m. that same day. She also says that her husband had to "fudge the press."

She was 36 years old. Her death was ruled as an overdose from the sleeping pill Nembutal. Several conspiracy theories have surfaced in the decades after her death, some involving President John F. Kennedy and/or Robert Kennedy. There is also speculation that her death was accidental, but the official cause of death was "probable suicide" by acute barbiturate poisoning.
