Marilyn Monroe, Murdered or Overdose?

What do we know about Marilyn Monroe? We know she had a terrible mental illness that was passed on genetically from her mother. We know she was a shy actress and singer. Most of all we know that she would be considered "plus size" in today's world and would put any skinny model to shame.

Til the age of 16, Monroe was in and out of foster homes due to her mother being in the mental hospital. In these homes, Monroe claims she was sexually assaulted by men she was under the care of. At age 16, it is said that Marilyn was married. During WWII, she worked in a factory when she met a photographer from the "First Motion Picture Unit." This started her pin-up model career.

One thing about Marilyn, that was pretty well known, was her affair with President John F Kennedy. Of course, Marilyn was largely loved by men all over the world.

Historians say that Monroe was very shy in front of the camera, but when she performed, there was no one like her.

Her first husband was star baseball player Joe DiMaggio. They were married a short time. Marilyn didn't have the same marriage aspirations as Joe. She wasn't the type of woman who would stay home and serve her man. She wasn't a "cookie cutter" woman like other women of her time.

Widely known all around the world was about the mental torment Marilyn went through. She had medication to wake up in the morning, keep going through the day, then medication to go to sleep.

On top of all of those medications, she was an alcoholic. She many times would have breakdowns or panic attacks that was difficult to handle.

She later married Author, Arthur Miller. They were married five long years and experienced several miscarriages. Arthur and Marilyn weren't married long when she found out that he wasn't happy. Her mental illness was too much for the famous author to handle. They divorced in 1960.

In 1961, John F. Kennedy became the youngest President to ever serve office. Marilyn was quite taken by the handsome president. Rumors have it that they had an affair while he was in office. On the President's birthday, May 19, 1962, Marilyn sang her famous "Happy Birthday, Mr. President." To President JFK. That is when rumors started to really fly.

If the truth was to get out about the affair, it would ruin the Presidency. Just three months later on August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her bathroom of an "overdose". The suspicious death has covered headlines even today. People say that her death could be the result of covering up the affair. Others believe it was the Mob who had it out for the Kennedy family and killed Marilyn to get back at them.

Ex husband, Joe DiMaggio, loved her all this time and paid completely for her funeral. It was said for years that DiMaggio would put fresh flowers on her grave yearly until he passed away as well.

A year later, on November 22, 1963, President JFK was assassinated. It is said that from a window of a building near by, a sniper shot the President in the head while in a parade in his motorcade. The case is still unsolved today.

Could it be the Mob finishing the job? Was it the Mob or the Presidential family that killed Marilyn? The whole situation is too shady to be an overdose. Rumors are an old mob boss stated before his death that they did kill Marilyn Monroe to get back at the famous family. Is it true? You tell us.
