‘Murdered by the Mafia’: Did Bobby Kennedy pay for Marilyn Monroe’s killing?
Nearly 50 years after her death on August 5, 1962, a bombshell book claims to finally reveal who murdered Marilyn

When movie goddess MARILYN MONROE’s naked body was found on her bed at her Hollywood home, it was assumed she had killed herself.
Devastated by tangled affairs with American President JOHN F KENNEDY and brother BOBBY, the 36-year-old star of The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot was said to have overdosed on sleeping pills.
But so many things didn’t add up that conspiracy theories began immediately.
Now, nearly 50 years after her death on August 5, 1962, a bombshell book claims to finally reveal who murdered Marilyn.
Investigative author DARWIN PORTER – who knew the star – claims five Mafia hoodlums working under orders from mob boss SAM GIANCANA carried out the hit.
But he believes Bobby, who secretly visited Marilyn with his British brother-in-law PETER LAWFORD hours before she died, had a lot to do with her death.
“Of course Bobby didn’t do it,” Porter tells the Mirror, in an exclusive interview. “He was a very smart man.
“Sam Giancana had the motive to kill her – she was threatening to blow the lid off his operations.
“But it also begs the question, did someone pay him to murder Marilyn?
“And if someone did pay him, the only person I can think of is a Kennedy.”
Three-times-married Marilyn had fallen head over heels in love with the married President – shocking the world by breathlessly singing happy birthday to him wearing a gown so tight little was left to the imagination – but he passed her on to his brother.
Attorney General Bobby promised to leave his wife for Marilyn but weeks before she died, he stopped returning her calls.
Distraught, Marilyn had a brief fling with the youngest Kennedy brother, Ted, then started telling friends she was going to call a press conference to reveal all of her affairs.
The vulnerable star, who was battling problems with drugs and alcohol, intended to expose the Mafia’s secrets too.
Like her occasional lover FRANK SINATRA, she had become entangled in the mob after bedding Giancana’s henchman JOHNNY ROSELLI.
He used strong arm tactics to get Marilyn her first Hollywood contract in 1947 – in return the mobsters expected her to seduce powerful men they wanted to blackmail.
“A lot of people had a lot to lose if Marilyn spoke out,” says 74-year-old Porter.
He first met Marilyn when, as a teenager, he saw her strip off to try on a bikini made by his fashion designer mother.
“She was making a lot of dangerous statements and didn’t realise she was playing with the big boys. I think Marilyn got in over her head – she fell into a barrel.
“Her close friend, actress JEANNE CARMEN, told me Marilyn thought she was too big to touch. After Marilyn’s death, Roselli ordered Jeanne to get out of town.
She moved to Arizona, gave up acting and worked as a waitress. That’s how scared she was.”
President Kennedy unwittingly got caught up with the Mafia – he shared a lover, Judith Campbell Exner, with Giancana – and his father Joe used the mob to “buy” election votes.
In another twist, Porter says the Mafia and the CIA were working hand-in-glove to bring down America’s enemies. They used Marilyn to strip off and perform a sex act on Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and considered involving her in a plot to poison President Fidel Castro of Cuba.
Marilyn’s phones in Brentwood, California, were bugged and spies heard numerous accounts of the gossip-loving icon revealing all about her affairs to friends.
In the months before her death, Marilyn became more erratic as she consumed copious amounts of prescription pills, washed down with champagne.
She told pals she was pregnant but wasn’t sure whether the father was Jack or his brother.
She was also considering two marriage proposals – from ex-husband Joe DiMaggio and Mexican Jose Bolanos.
Despite being fired from her final movie Something’s Got To Give, she had several new film deals lined up and the offer of a cabaret show in mob-run Las Vegas.
“In her final hours she was arranging a date with MARLON BRANDO and discussing plans for the next week,” says Porter.
“Peter Lawford claims Marilyn was slurring when he spoke to her the last time. That’s not true. Others phoned after him and she sounded fine.
“The silliest thing of all is the claim that BOBBY KENNEDY was nowhere near California that day.
“He was pictured with his family in San Francisco. Then he got a plane to LA and was seen by all sorts of people.”
Porter says Marilyn used private detectives to bug her home to keep records of her trysts with the President and other famous men.
That afternoon, they picked up a screaming match between Bobby and Marilyn.
He claims Roselli called at Marilyn’s house at 10pm on August 4, leaving the door unlocked so five hitmen could sneak in.
“Slipping behind Marilyn, one of the men removed a chloroform-soaked washcloth from his bag,” Porter says.
“The cloth was forced over her nose and mouth. Giancana had issued orders that her body was not to be bruised.”
Marilyn was carried into the un-bugged guest cottage in her garden, where the thugs stripped her and administered an enema of barbiturates.
They bolted when they heard her housekeeper return.
What happened over the next few hours remains the source of intense speculation but Porter claims Hollywood publicists and doctors were called long before the police and paramedics at 4.25am.
In the time between the killing and police arriving on the scene, Marilyn had been moved from the cottage to the her bedroom in the main house.
By then actor Lawford had also arrived. Porter says he emptied the contents of Marilyn’s filing cabinet into three cardboard boxes. Among the things that disappeared was Marilyn’s red diary.
JACK CLEMMONS was the first police officer to arrive at the house just after 4.30am. “I felt I’d arrived at the scene of a murder,” he later said.
“Her body was artfully arranged by someone. It was obvious to me that this was a staged event.
“Her legs were arranged perfectly, as if she was getting ready to pose for a nude calendar.
“I had been at suicide scenes before, especially when the victim overdosed on barbiturates. In the last minutes before consciousness is lost, there is a great pain and the body contorts.”
Clemmons was replaced by more senior officers and ordered to keep quiet.
Porter’s account is convincing. “I went to see Marilyn’s surviving friends, many were dying and had nothing to lose by finally telling the truth,” he says.
As for who paid for the hit, that’s for his readers to decide.
