“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe

A responding officer is pointing at an empty bottle of Nembutal sleeping capsules on Monroe’s bedside table - heavy doses of the pill as well as other prescription medicines were later found in her stomach. Monroe’s death was officially deemed a “probable suicide”.
