Were Marilyn Monroe’s closest confidantes conspiring with others to cover-up her mysterious death? Episode 10 of the podcast “The Killing of Marilyn Monroe” claims the actress’ housekeeper and publicist suspiciously fled the United States shortly after she died.
The Something’s Got to Give actress was found dead on August 5, 1962 in her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The icon’s housekeeper, Eunice Murray, allegedly discovered her naked body surrounded by empty pill bottles.
Meanwhile, her publicist, Patricia Newcomb, claimed to have been “upset” after the death of her “friend,” experts on the podcast revealed. But detective Becky Altringer, who carried out her own investigation into the star’s death, claimed Eunice and Patricia disappearances were far from coincidental.
Becky claimed Patricia “never gave a statement” following Marilyn’s death, despite her job as her publicist. She fled the United States and took a “sudden vacation to Europe for six months,” the podcast narrator divulged.
“I believe the Kennedys sent her out of the country,” Becky claimed in the episode. “I believe they did that so no one would question her. If you read about it, police officers have said that Pat Newcomb was just out of control.”
Becky spoke to Patricia, now 88 years old, in a rare phone call years ago. “I asked her, ‘Did the Kennedys send you out of the country?’ Her answer to me was, ‘Well, I was leaving anyway,’” the investigator claimed.
Marilyn died believing that her publicist was leading an affair with one of her lovers, Bobby Kennedy, who was the country’s attorney general at the time. The “sinister” plan became even more suspicious as experts learned Marilyn’s housekeeper conveniently took a “long holiday abroad” as well, the narrator alleged.
Becky claimed Eunice flew to Europe on August 17 — less than two weeks after she found Marilyn dead in her home. “She went to Germany, France, Italy, and Switzerland, then I think they were just trying to keep her out of the news and not talking to anybody, since her stories kept changing,” the investigator added.
Becky revealed that Eunice later returned home and lived “a peaceful life.” Meanwhile, Patricia mysteriously landed high executive positions during Bobby Kennedy’s 1964 senatorial campaign. The publicist then later snagged a senior role at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) studios.
“It makes you wonder where she got this very high power job,” Becky said. “I asked her about that, and she said, ‘Well, I have a career in this, I’ve been doing this a long time, and that’s how I got the job.”
Key evidence in Marilyn’s death investigation went missing. During the coroner’s ruling of her cause and manner of death, the podcast revealed the Hollywood starlet’s organs and tissue samples “disappeared.” Experts of the chilling series claimed that government documents of Marilyn’s also “vanished.”
“The police records that were kept disappeared. There aren’t any records on Marilyn,” Becky added.
Biographer Danforth Prince claimed that all “incoming and outgoing calls” of Marilyn’s phone records “never” turned up again.
Marilyn’s affairs with President John F. Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy led to her home being wired by the FBI and Chicago mafia. Author Fabulous Gabriel claimed that “four different sets of bugging tapes” were also mysteriously gone after the icon’s 1962 death.
“The reason to bug her house was to get inside information on what Marilyn may know about the FBI and Bobby Kennedy’s attack on the Chicago mob,” Fabulous explained.
Today, Becky boldly concluded that “every single thing” that tracked Marilyn’s tumultuous life and death disappeared.
