Theory

Monroe was having an affair with John F. Kennedy, and he killed because he feared she'd expose their affair. This would've tarnished his image, and put his political career in jeopardy.Monroe was also having an affair with J.F.K's brother, Robert Kennedy. Robert confided in her about secret government information and she recorded this information in her secret diary. After the pair coldly cut her off and dropped her, she threatened to go public and hold a press conference to “blow the lid off the whole damn thing.” So Robert Kennedy killed her because she knew too much political information.

There's a few variations surrounding the CIA conspiracy theories about the death of Marilyn Monroe. One theory is that Monroe’s death was ordered by the CIA to get revenge on the Kennedy's for their failed invasion of Cuba. Subsequently, her death would be another blow to the Kennedy family. Another theory is; the CIA killed her because she knew of their plans to kill Fidel Castro -then Prime Minister of Cuba (from 1959 to 1976)- (He was a communist revolutionary,and eventually became President of Cuba -from 1976 to 2008) .They killed her in order to silence her.A third theory is; the Kennedy's ordered the CIA to have her killed to protect their political career and reputation.Also, a retired CIA agent confessed on his deathbed that he killed Monroe.He alleged she was having an affair with Fidel Castro .And because the Kennedy's gave her knowledge of highly classified information,the CIA killed her to prevent her from passing on strategic information to the communists.

She was molested by a neighbor when she was a child. As an adult,she had countless sexual encounters with different men ,and went through three divorces . All she ever wanted was to feel loved. All her life she'd been rejected and abandoned by people she cared about. She was emotionally unbalanced, and had no family support. Monroe developed mental health problems,anxiety and chronic insomnia.This led to a reliance on sleeping pills.So she attended psychotherapy to work through her unresolved issues.Her Psychiatrist ,Dr. Ralph Greenson, prescribed, Nembutal - a barbiturate to treat her Insomnia. However, few doctors prescribe Nembutal for insomnia these days, due to the high risks of addiction and the dangers of overdose. Prior to her death ,she had been admitted to a psychiatric clinic and underwent many therapy sessions. Monroe had attempted suicide four times in the past.So after her death, it was assumed she had ended her own life because she'd simply just had enough.

  • The suicide angle is the only one that makes any semblance of sense.
    She wasn't a happy person, she was severely mentally ill, and she was addicted to drugs and alcohol

  • #3 of course BUT Sam gave the orders to shut her up since the Kennedys were putting all his top dogs in jail... after Sam got them the extra votes they needed for Prez? MM was Sam's/other top crime guys intimate girlfriend where she learned more than she should about the inside of all that.

    B/c she was throwing herself at one Kennedy then another, Sam knew she would sooner or later feed them even more ammo to jail more of his top dogs... if she wasn't helping already.

    How to kill a snake if to cut off his head Sam quipped after MM's death did not stop the persecution of his dogs.

    True, Kennedy had other dire enemies eager to join Sam to kill JFK
    1. Lyndon & his oil buddies were fed up with being the butt of their ivy league jokes and LBJ was accomplished at usurping his higher ups positions
    2. JFK put egg on a top military officials' faces @ Bay of Pigs, one of which was closely relations to the Mayor of Dallas!
    3. Having a fall guy and his weapon found easily + more than one shooter is the classic organized crime HIT, be it stupid Oswald or Sirhan... Jack Ruby nearby to shut up a fall guy not yet dead is also SOP
    4. That November day in Dallas found the unorganized police & FBI/SS swamped with the most highly suspicious gangsters ever visiting as diversions
    5. The sure thing shooter was a top French assassin, who found his 30-30 near the RR tracks, frontal shot from grassy knoll, walked away, dropped rifle on tracks where a "RR man" picked it up, disassembled it and disposed of the pieces in various places after wiping them down. Classic hit man SOP.

  • Interesting... I guess this is why I'm not on the police force and not a detective or anything...

    Because she died ages ago and I really just don't care how or why it happened. If there was a case still open investigating her death and I was assigned to it, the shit would never get solved.

  • I believe she was troubled ( and did in fact commit suicide. )
    . Depressed and vulnerable. She's admitted in interviews before how she sometimes got really depressed.. and felt stardom was like an escape. And that she was lonely most of the times despite all of her success and recognition. But we will never know. I've heard all the different theories and it does make you wonder...
