The Death of Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe was a well-known film actress and pinup girl. She was known for her looks, style, and her mind as well as a sex symbol. She had a rough childhood that consisted of orphanages and foster homes which ended in psychological problems. Marilyn had pre-performance anxiety which would make her physically sick often hurting her career. Although she put on a smile and looked as if she was fine, she struggled with a string of unsuccessful marriages and relationships. Many things caused her to abuse drugs and alcohol such as, her lack of self-esteem, sexual abuse, depression, absence of her father, neuroticism, and her lack of ability to express herself.
Marilyn stood for women's rights and showed that women were powerful too. She wasn't the usual image a woman would have back then. Many women looked up to her and wanted to be like her.

Paramedics Wheel Her Out
When a person dies the blood settles to the lowest point that the body is positioned. Since she was laying face down you can see the discoloration on her face.
Face down, naked, no water or alcohol...
How Did She Die? Suicide? Or Murder.
Marilyn's cause of death was said to be a barbiturate overdose. It was told that she had taken 64 pills and died face down, naked in her bed with the door locked. Her house maid, Eunice Murray, found her face down in her bed with no sheets on or anything. The ambulance was called and she was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Many people suspected that Marilyn Monroe was murdered by one of the Kennedy brothers. She was known to have had an affair with the both of them and she had threatened to let out their secrets. If Monroe really overdosed then why did she have no water or alcohol to help swallow all 64 pills? Why were there no pills in her stomach or in her blood stream? Why was her window broken from the inside? Her death looked as if it was staged with her bed all made with fresh linens and she was completely naked with the door locked. Plus, the ambulance was called at 10 pm and they actually arrived at 3 in the morning.
