Was Marilyn Monroe Killed to Prevent UFO Disclosure?
When famous model and film icon Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her home in 1962, the official autopsy reports labeled her death a barbiturate overdose, and likely the result of suicide.
While Monroe had exhibited signs of depression and used prescription sedatives for years, her death came at the peak of her career and was a shock to millions. And rightfully so, as Monroe was closely connected to a number of powerful men, namely President John F. Kennedy.
A number of conspiracies abound around her death, including the possibility that she was murdered by either the CIA or the mob out of spite of President Kennedy. Others thought that (then) Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had her killed because she had incriminating evidence against the family that could have ruined their political careers and led to legal woes.
But there’s another theory behind her untimely death that stands out above the rest—one that involves disclosure.
Based on a top-secret, classified document taken from a vault at the NSA, Dr. Steven Greer says he has reason to believe Monroe was killed because she was going to tell the world about the spacecraft recovered in New Mexico.
According to Dr. Greer, an insider he was connected to mailed him a copy of this document signed by James Jesus Angleton the chief of counterintelligence for the CIA from 1954 to 1975.
The document describes a wiretap placed on Monroe and details her discussion with a friend in New York, in which she allegedly said she was going to hold a press conference to disclose what President Kennedy had told her about “objects from outer space recovered from New Mexico in the 1940s.”
Dr. Greer said he even spoke to one of Monroe’s close friends in the film industry, actor and singer Burl Ives, who said the cause of her death wasn’t suicide, but that he believed this could have been a likely scenario.
But what exactly did President Kennedy tell Monroe and would the world have believed her if she went public? Could Kennedy’s assassination years later also have had something to do with his desire to disclose this information to the public?
More details to this bizarre story and the layers of government secrecy are revealed in a new 10-part special “Disclosure with Dr. Steven Greer.
The Reporter Who May Have Learned the Truth Behind JFK's Assassination
Few historical events have sparked as many conspiracy theories as the JFK assassination, but when one looks at the evidence regarding the Kennedys’ history with the country’s organized crime families, it’s hard not to see the mob’s culpability. At least that’s what best-selling author, researcher, and former criminal defense attorney Mark Shaw has detailed over the course of several books, including his most recent titled, “The Reporter Who Knew Too Much.”
The reporter Shaw is referring to is Dorothy Kilgallen, arguably the most famous female journalist of her era, known for a syndicated column in the New York Journal-American, a nationally broadcast CBS radio show listened to by millions, and her role as star panelist of the celebrity game show “What’s My Line?”
Kilgallen met an untimely death in 1965 while investigating a strong suspicion that members of the New Orleans mafia may have been behind JFK’s assassination. Fanning the flames of conspiracy further, Kilgallen’s reported cause of death — acute ethanol and barbiturate intoxication — was uncannily similar to that of Marilyn Monroe, whose alleged suicide has been questioned interminably.
According to Shaw’s research, Kilgallen was one of few people who connected Jack Ruby — the Dallas nightclub owner who murdered Lee Harvey Oswald — to Carlos Marcello, the “Godfather” of the New Orleans mafia. Knowing the Kennedy family’s complicated ties to various mob syndicates, Oswald’s history of living in New Orleans, and Ruby’s affiliations with the mob, Kilgallen followed her instinct. She also happened to be the sole reporter to interview Ruby at his trial, out of hundreds who were present.
In 1965, Kilgallen embarked on an investigative trip to Louisiana to test her hypothesis, bringing only a hairstylist along with her. However, she quickly told him to return to New York and not mention to anyone she was down there. Shaw says he believes she uncovered some damning evidence implicating Marcello’s involvement in the Kennedy assassination, which she quickly realized could cost her her life. Kilgallen returned to New York and planned a return trip to New Orleans to meet a confidential informant, but was found dead just weeks before she was supposed to leave. She described her plans to meet the informant on her second trip as “cloak and daggerish.”
The idea that the mafia was behind Kennedy’s assassination isn’t a new one. It was well known that the family’s patriarch, Joe P. Kennedy Sr. had a convoluted history with a number of well-known figures in organized crime. Kennedy Sr.’s business dealings in Chicago led to his acquaintance with famous mob boss Frank Costello, who claimed the two were involved in bootlegging operations during prohibition. Though Kennedy Sr. denied this connection, he continued to build his vast fortune through exclusive distribution rights for world-renowned brands of scotch and other imported liquors when prohibition ended.
