Everyone loves a conspiracy theory, don’t they? And the one surrounding Marilyn Monroe’s passing just refuses to die (if you’ll pardon the pun). Now, just when we thought we knew all there was to know about Marilyn Monroe and what she did on August 4th-5th, 1962, some new information has come to light, from a guy who knew Marilyn Monroe very well.
George Masters, Monroe’s hair stylist, alleges that the doomed star took one last trip we don’t usually get to hear of – with Frank Sinatra in his private jet! The other guest was allegedly none other than mobster Sam Giancana.
Marilyn Monroe’s death on August 5, 1962, remains, arguably, the most mysterious and controversial death Hollywood has ever known. The official verdict states it was “probable” suicide, but many don’t accept that. She was too closely bound up with Presidents, politicians and mobsters alike. Sure she was messed up and seeing a shrink but her suicide was just too unexpected, too bizarre and too darn convenient for some skeptics to tolerate.
We’ll probably never know if Robert Kennedy visited Marilyn the night she died, or if she actually died in the ambulance and then was brought back home. But now the nephew of Marilyn Monroe’s stylist, George Masters, has claimed that his uncle flew with Marilyn to Lake Tahoe on Frank Sinatra’s private plane and stayed over, flying home about 9 a.m. It was that night that Marilyn died. The revelation came in taped conversations shortly before George’s death.
Previously, it had been stated that Marilyn had spent that night at the Cal-Neva Lodge before her body was discovered at home the following morning. Masters was adamant that Marilyn Monroe was there with Sam Giancana, the head of the Mafia at the time.
Why is this important? Well, it might not be. But Masters thinks it is. He thinks that Marilyn may have been invited to the Cal-Neva Lodge for the second time in a week so that Frank Sinatra and others could try to keep her from disclosing information about the Kennedys. He purports that Monroe was in love with Giancana and he may have thought she would listen to him.
If there was nothing sinister or mysterious about this trip, why has it been kept quiet all these years? Why did Monroe’s publicist, Pat work for the Kennedys for years after Monroe’s death? On the tapes, Masters says, “Talk to Pat. She knows everything.” But Pat is now a recluse, in her 80s, and has refused to say a word about Marilyn Monroe’s death.
Masters is also recorded as saying, “Did you know she was pronounced dead, and then they brought her back to the house, and she was still alive, and they took her back to the hospital, and brought her back home, and then the coroners came over, and they found her dead in another bed — somebody moved her.”
This appears confirmation of the popular conspiracy theory surround Marilyn’s Monroe’s death. But what would be the point of that? Masters’ accusation is a heavy one: “And you know how she died? It was an enema. With Nembutal.”
Masters went to his grave blaming the FBI taking Monroe out, as a threat to the Kennedys.
