Description

<p>How did Hollywood’s brightest star become its most tragic victim? From Norma Jeane, casting couch girl desperate for success, to Marilyn Monroe, global icon, it was Marilyn’s turbulent love life that ultimately sealed her final fate. Surrounded by a deadly cocktail of pills, her death was ruled “probable suicide,” but questions remain surrounding just how – and why – she died. From the creators of Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood comes a 12-part audio documentary that analyzes the tangle of sex, power, corruption, and lies that led the most powerful men in America to silence Marilyn Monroe for good.

Chapter Twelve: Justice for Marilyn
1477
A round-up of the entire series and a look at what action has taken place in the 57 years since Marilyn Monroe's murder, including the 1982 “threshold investigation” and the multitude of books since. The subsequent lives and deaths of JFK, RFK, Giancana, Hoover, Greenson, Sinatra, and Lawford will also be examined for clues. Finally, we ask: is the mounting evidence and newly-released FBI files incentive for the LA County DA’s office to reinvestigate the death of Hollywood’s most tragic star?

Chapter Eleven: The Case Against the Kennedys
1726
Increasingly concerned about Marilyn Monroe’s erratic behavior and the Kennedy secrets she knew, Bobby Kennedy was sent to LA to control the situation. Whether he turned up at Marilyn’s condo with the intention of killing her will never be known, but when she wouldn’t give up her Red Book, things turned violent. A sedative was administered by Dr. Greenson; it didn’t work. A pillow was placed over Marilyn's head, a shot given, and then a fatal injection directly into her heart. Peter Lawford was called to doctor the scene to look like suicide before the police were called, and the Kennedy cover-up operation swung into action.

Chapter Ten: Whodunit? The Suspects
1654
In this episode, we examine the various conspiracy theories surrounding Marilyn Monroe's death, investigating each of the suspects one by one. Was it a mob hit ordered by Giancana in order to get at President John F. Kennedy? Was it J Edgar Hoover, desperate to get his hands on Marilyn's Red Book to gain power over the President? Was the CIA, panicked over Marilyn’s ties to Communists and all the information she knew, spurred into silencing her? Or could it even have been the Kennedy's themselves?

Chapter One: Marilyn – A Global Icon and Tragic Heroine
1648
She is the greatest female star Hollywood ever produced and in most people’s minds, the 20th century’s definitive sex symbol but on August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe’s incredible light was suddenly, shockingly, snuffed out and 57 years later, the full facts of her death remain hidden. Now learn the real story as we show how in the course of her brief time in the spotlight, Marilyn Monroe became a pawn at the center of a deadly power struggle between the President of the United States, his Attorney General brother, the highest levels of the Mafia, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, Frank Sinatra, and America’s hidden Communist threat. The woman who had used her sexuality to hold sway over men her whole life was ultimately undone by her choice of lovers – and become little more than a puppet in their deadly schemes against one another.

Introducing The Killing of Marilyn Monroe
145
The Killing of Marilyn Monroe is an explosive new 12-part podcast from the creators of Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood. Marilyn Monroe’s name, beauty and legend is still as iconic today as the night she died 57 years ago. But unlike the legacy of her stardom, shadowy conspiracies and unanswered questions continue to linger over what happened in the hours, days and weeks before the blonde bombshell took her final breath, naked on her bed and surrounded by a deadly cocktail of prescription pills. The coroners verdict: “Probable suicide”. Yet many believe it was murder. This original 12-part series investigates the secret life Marilyn hid from the world, juggling affairs with Rat Pack crooners, President's men and mob bosses… and chronicling every encounter in her infamous “Red Diary”. Some say she knew too much, got in too deep, became a threat to the most powerful and dangerous men in America. For the first time, and in unprecedented detail, The Killing of Marilyn Monroe will uncover exactly what she knew – and what it cost her. The series premieres on 8/19/19.
