I believe she was poisoned

Here is a wonderful answer from Meg at alwaysmarilynmonroe:

Marilyn’s death?

My opinion is very mixed due to the mess of the autopsy however and the fabricated/changed accounts by Dr Ralph Greenson and Eunice Murray. However, after reading Donald Spoto’s wonderful biography about Marilyn I firmly believe her death was caused by an enema, which was probably instated by Eunice Murray or Dr Ralph Greenson. The autopsy states that there was no pill residue within Marilyn’s body so that makes it believe that the dose would only of been possible by lethal injection or an enema, which I believe as Marilyn often used them. However, it also states that there was no bruising on Marilyn’s body so lethal injection is unlikely and as her colonol was so badly bruised it is pretty obvious that the lethal enema killed her. There was also no water running in the house, and as Marilyn was known to gag on pills unless she had water with them, it is unlikely that she took them all at once. Even though Marilyn was known to of taken many suicide attempts, she was always revived so it is questionable. Also the fact the first police man on the scene, Sgt Jack Clemmons strongly believed it was a staged murder scene. Furthermore, the autopsy was done so messily with all organs not being looked at and thrown away so therefore the whole thing is very suspicious and therefore my answer is very mixed. All of witnesses around Marilyn in the last months of her life have said how Marilyn was happy and looking forward to the future, she was becoming more independent and removing negative people out of her life.However, because of the endless conspiracies and that it is unlikely of ever finding out the truth I try to focus on her wonderful life and the person she was and is almost fifty years later. 


Marilyn Monroe 30 Day Challenge.

28. Least favourite person in Marilyn Monroe’s life and why: These two. Dr. Ralph Greenson and Eunice Murray. They are both very shady people, in my opinion. I think Greenson took advantage of having a big star as his patient. Although things related to anything medicine/doctors/therapy wasn’t as well understood then as it is today, I think even back then it was seen as odd to have a patient visit your own home and have dinner with your family. I think he went much further than any doctor should. He had Marilyn hire Eunice Murray, the ‘housekeeper.’ I don’t even know how to describe these two - I literally keep pausing to find the right words and I can’t seem to find them. Basically, to me, they didn’t have Marilyn’s best interests in mind. I think Eunice Murray was much more than a housekeeper. They knew more than they would ever tell about her death, and that just isn’t right…not because the public is curious, but because it’s simply the right thing to do especially in the event of someone dying!! Gosh, I’m getting a headache just thinking about this. They make me angry and I hate that they took advantage of Marilyn. I just hate it.


Since Marilyn’s death, and the emergence of rumors surrounding one or both Kennedy brothers, a great deal of scrutiny has fallen on Mrs. Murray. In 1985 she told BBC documentary makers that Robert Kennedy had indeed been at Marilyn’s home on the afternoon of Marilyn’s last day alive. However, she later retracted this admission, claiming, “I’m in my eighty-second year. Once in a while, everything becomes confused.”

#Marilynettes #RIPMarilyn ~ Eurince Murray’s statement to the police:

  • Marilyn has retired to her bedroom at about 8:00 PM
  •  3:30 AM the light under Marilyn’s bedroom door and found the door locked
  • she went outside and looked through the window to see Marilyn lying on her stomach in the apperance seemed unnatural
  •  she called Dr Greenson who broke the window and entered into the bedroom and found Marilyn dead.

A number of discrepancies have been identified in her testimony. To start with, the brand-new deep pile carpeting was too thick to allow light to be seen under the door; in later testimonies, Eunice said she was alerted by the telephone call. A bigger doubt regards the locked door. Some biographers claim that there was no working lock on the door, and Marilyn had always slept with her bedroom door open. Indeed, she abhorred the idea of locks altogether after her brief and distressing enforced stay in a psychiatric ward at  the Payne-Whitney hospital.
Murray has also not been consistent regarding the timing of the discovery, and hence the time, of Marilyn’s death. She is said to have told the first policeman to arrive on the scene, Sergeant Jack Clemmons, that she first alerted Dr. Greenson at midnight, not 3 A.M. as she later told officials. Clemmons said that when he arrived at the house at 4:40 A.M., Mrs. Murray was busy running the washing machine and cleaning up. Detective Sergeant Robert E. Byron, who took over from Clemmons, wrote in his official police report, “It is officer’s opinion that Mrs. Murray was vague and possibly evasive in answering questions pertaining to the activities of Miss Monroe during this time."
