In the Sunday times the 14th of Oct their was an article in the “world on Sunday” called “Silent Witness, Monroe truth dies with Lawford” by John Edwards that questions the truth behind the conspiracy of Marilyn Monroe’s death. Was it suicide or Murder? A question that has still yet to be answered, but now the truth will never be known. Due to recently Patricia Kennedy Lawford died from Pneumonia in her home in Manhattan, she was the last person to know the secrets of Monroe’s death, but now the secret is possibly lost forever.
Patricia was married to Peter Lawford a long time friend of
Monroe who was the last person to see and speak her before she committed suicide, unless she was murdered? The article prompts many ideas about her death and it speaks of the affairs with both Jack and Bobby Kennedy that Monroe was going to go public about that night that she “died”.
The end of the affairs had destroyed Monroe, which led her to overdose on Vodka and pills in the
Lake Tahoe cabin after a conversation to Bobby Kennedy on the phone, questioning him about why he wanted to end it.
Monroe was found by Patricia and her husband, Lawford who revived her with the help of another of
Monroe’s lovers, Frank Sinatra. Who then flew her back to Los Angeles on his private jet. Once in LA, Lawford called his wife and Bobby Kennedy about Monroe continuous ranting about going public.
The mystery thickens when it is revealed that Bobby Kennedy was seen by Lawford’s neighbour entering the house where Monroe was staying the night and consequently died, it also reveals of unregistered helicopter flight. The mystery continues to unfold as Lawford makes drunken phone calls to his wife, Patricia, she wasn’t the only Kennedy to know that Bobby was in LA, the president also knew. This to me raises the question about maybe it was a political cover-up. But what harm would come by
Monroe going public about the affair? Or did Monroe know something that she shouldn’t have know, something of value to the Kennedy family?
This article ends just like any conspiracy related article or story by saying “that the truth died with them. It will never be known”. This entices the reader to think about all angles they have been introduced to so they are able to come up with their own idea.
I found this article an interesting, it’s not something I would normally read but this sort of grabbed my attention. The last person who knew the truth has possibly died and taken the truth to the grave. It was a death full of scandal, politics, sex and drugs. It’s conspiracy that is still being researched today. For me the Kennedy’s are implicated some how in this conspiracy, but sadly no one will ever know the truth.
