Marilyn Monroe was found dead as a result of a drug overdose in her bed in her Brentwood home, 12305 Fifth Helena Dr Brentwood, CA, on the night of 8-4-62 ~ 8-5-62.
How and by whom her death was first noticed, what quantity of which drugs, administered in what fashion and by whom, how she ended up dead in that bed in that room, who did what? and other pertinent questions are unanswerable, given the lack of direct physical evidence, the contradictions within and between the witnesses’ testimony, and the murking of the waters over time due to the retrospective suspicions cast on all involved.
A variety of theories have evolved:
1: Deliberate self-administered drug overdose.
2: Accidental, self-administered drug overdose
3: Accidental drug overdose administered by Eunice Murray by enema.
4: Accidental death due to Dr Greenson giving her injection in heart.
5: Deliberate overdose administered by Greenson or by Murray at Greenson’s instruction.
6: Deliberate overdose administered by Robert Kennedy and/or/with other accomplices (possibly federal agents) present.
Marilyn herself, The Kennedys, the government, J. Edgar Hoover, the movie studio, the mafia, her housekeeper, her doctor, or any one of the above, alone, all, or in any combination with the others, have been suggested as suspects.
Former Norma2Marilyn Fan Club vice president Tony Plant has written perhaps the most detailed and comprehensive chemical analysis of the cause of Marilyn’s death.

What was the connection between all of the above during the sixties and how could it possibly have any bearing now? Who was behind the assassination of JFK? Was Marilyn murdered? How closely connected were the mob and the CIA? The answers are all contained in a set of diaries, The Red Diaries.
When Marilyn Monroe was found dead, it was stated as an accidental suicide. But what happened to the red diary that she wrote everything down in? It never left her side, yet the police reports show no evidence of it. Now over 30 years later, a man claims to have the red diary of Marilyn. In addition, he continued to keep his own diaries which gives his involvement with the Kennedys, The Mob, the CIA, and others. Now that he’s on his deathbed, it’s time to blow everything wide open. This is a Raven Chronicles tie-in.
The Red Diaries was released as a four-issue series with each issue running 48 pages. Written by Gary Reed, it featured artwork from Chris Jones, Laurence Campbell, Larry Shuput, and Ken Meyer, Jr. In addition to the story line, there is background information that will provide a wider view on the story line. These short segments include a history of the CIA, the Kennedy family, the formal reports on the Kennedy Assassination, Monroe’s death, and more.
