Columnist claims Marilyn Monroe was killed: Report

 June 17, 2024

A columnist for the Daily Mail is claiming that Marilyn Monroe was actually killed. 

Maureen Callahan made this claim in a book that she has published, titled, Ask Not: The Kennedys and the Women They Destroyed. 

The author, though, provided an overview of her claims about Monroe's death in an article that she has published for the Daily Mail, titled, Unearthed claim about JFK and Bobby Kennedy's involvement in Marilyn Monroe's death . . . and all the signs it wasn't a suicide, revealed by Maureen Callahan: I know who killed her.

It's a lengthy title and article that is worth the read if you are interested in the subject.

The official narrative

What is claimed is that Marilyn Monroe, whose birth name was Norma Jeane Mortenson, died from an overdose of prescription medication.

People magazine reports:

The last day of Monroe's life, Aug. 4, 1962, is still shrouded in mystery. At the time, Monroe was under the constant care of a doctor and psychiatrist, who had prescribed her numerous medications to treat mental health issues as well as her insomnia. Unfortunately, despite the efforts to care for the starlet, she overdosed on prescription medication, ending her life far too soon.

Her body was discovered on August 5, just before dawn, at her Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, home.

After conducting an investigation, the Los Angeles County coroner's office ruled that Monroe most probably died by suicide.

But, over the years, there have been many doubts about this.

Callahan's claims

The claim that Monroe's death was not suicide comes from Former LA County deputy district attorney John Miner.

Callahan reports:

Former LA County deputy district attorney John Miner later recalled speaking at length that year to Marilyn's psychoanalyst, who let Miner listen to a 40-minute tape of her sharing her plans for the immediate future. "As a result of what Dr. Greenson told me," Miner said, "and from what I heard on tape recordings, I believe I can say definitely that it was not suicide."

And, the claim that "I know who killed her" comes from Joe Dimaggio, Monroe's one-time husband.

He, according to Callahan, said:

"I always knew who killed her, but I didn't want to start a revolution in this country," he said later. "She told me someone would do her in, but I kept quiet. The whole lot of Kennedys were lady-killers, and they always got away with it. They'll be getting away with it a hundred years from now.

It would appear that Callahan, through her sources, is pointing her finger at the Kennedys for Monroe's untimely passing. DiMaggio did ban both Kennedys from Monroe's funeral.
