Below is an essay on "Marilyn Monroe" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

On the 4th of August 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead by her housekeeper Eunice Murray in her own bedroom lying on her bed holding her telephone. Her housekeeper called her psychiatrist Ralph Greenson immediately after finding Marilyn. The official cause of her death and the coroner’s verdict is probable suicide; this is the most widely believed reason because she has apparently attempted overdosing four times before. A number of sleeping pills were found in her bedside table. However, chloral hydrate was included which wasn’t prescribed to her. Marilyn was also believed to have had an affair with the Kennedy brothers.

In my opinion, Marilyn was murdered because a few hours before she was found dead, she called her best friend asking to bring her some sleeping pills. She wouldn’t really be asking for any if she had enough to kill herself. The drug found in her body was also chloral hydrate, a type of sleeping pill that hasn’t been prescribed to her by her doctor. Marilyn was believed to have had an affair with both Jack and Bobby Kennedy, two people that we’re in extremely high positions in politics at the time. Some say that she was actually quite interested in politics and was good at discussing the subject. Hardly any drugs were found in her body so if she did try to overdose herself, it wouldn’t have worked. She might’ve known too much including plans about the attack on Cuba during the Cold War. It is believed that Peter Lawford, the Kennedy’s step brother, went to Marilyn’s house the same night she died.   Marilyn also had a diary, which appears to have disappeared. The police files and the phone calls during that night has also disappeared. I think the FBI had something to do with her death.
