Marilyn Monroe Did Not Commit Suicide And Here Is Why...

Updated on July 31, 2015
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

The death of this American sex symbol has been debated since her death was ruled a suicide. She was discovered face down in her bed with a bottle of empty pills next to her and the phone still in her hand. Since the day of her death on August 5, 1962 many have argued against the theory of her killing herself saying she was murdered including friends, family, and countless fans. If you dig far enough into the case and bypass all of the conspiracy theories there are actually quite a few facts to support the idea of her being murdered.

There was no cup of water on her bedside table or anywhere near her when she was found. Marilyn was know to have trouble swallowing pills with water and would still gag when she could rinse them down. If she had forty pills in her stomach and a heavy gag reflex when taking pills there should have been some kind of drink in the room. Later on the police discovered a glass near the bed but the police claim it hadn't been there when they first got there.


"I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest."

Marilyn's house keeper, Eunice Murray, was the one who found her but could never seem to keep her story straight. Eunice had kept changing the events of the night she discovered Marilyn. She was also caught washing bed sheets at 4:00am. She was accused of being part of a cover up of Marilyn's death by LAPD Sergeant Jack Clemmons but there was never any hard evidence to support this theory and the police couldn't identify a logical motive for her to murder Marilyn Monroe.

Joe DiMaggio Jr. had spoken to her on the phone around 7:00pm the night of her death. Later when he was interviewed he claimed Marilyn seemed cheery and upbeat. Many sources claim that the two had planned to remarry on August 8, 1962. This date later became Marilyn Monroe's funeral date. This leads to the question if she was making plans for a future with Joe why would she commit suicide. There are signs that a person is suicidal, they can be missed by people who aren't close to the person who is depressed but Joe DiMaggio played a large part in Marilyn's life. Although her marriage to Joe DiMaggio was the shortest of her marriages he seemed to be the only consistent man in her life and was the only one who stuck by her when she was committed to a psychiatric hospital. A man so close to her would have notice something was wrong and that she was hurting.


"I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it."

Years after her death the actresses psychiatric doctor, Ralph Greenson revealed transcripts from his meetings with her. In these meetings Marilyn spoke about many things like her goal to win a Grammy, her need to be taken seriously as an actress, a sexual encounter with Joan Crawford, and her need for fatherly love from Clark Gable. The doctor explained that if you listen to the tape then there is no way you believe she committed suicide because she had such specific goals for her future. She had something she was striving for and something to look forward to. Typically people suffering from depression or suicidal tendencies don't have such high aspirations for themselves.

The pathologist who did the initial autopsy on Marilyn's body wanted to run more tests on her to find out how the pills had entered her system. When he requested her organs for the addition testing he was told that the toxicologist had already destroyed all of her organs. At the time of her death there had been strange bruising on her body when the pathologist requested the slides and pictures of the organs that displayed the strange bruising he was simply told they disappeared.

There are millions of mysterious facts and conspiracy theories about Marilyn Monroe's death and this only scratches the surface. With the just the facts I've gathered there is enough to cause reasonable doubt. This is a topic that has been debated since the tragedy took place in 1962 and will continue to be one of the most widely known unsolved mysteries in the world. It had such an impact that suicide hit then record breaking high with twelve people in one day in New York City alone. In one of the suicide notes the victim wrote “If the most wonderful, beautiful thing in the world has nothing to live for, then neither must I.” No matter how Marilyn died she will forever be remembered and loved.
