Her death was ruled to be "acute barbiturate poisoning" by Dr. Thomas Noguchi of the Los Angeles County Coroners office and listed as "probable suicide," but because of a lack of evidence, her death was not classified as "suicide." Many individuals, including Jack Clemmons, the first Los Angeles Police Department officer to arrive at the death scene, believe that she was murdered.
The death of Marilyn Monroe is one of the most debated conspiracy theories of the twentieth century.

The Daily Mail reports that Monroe bought the home in 1962 and lived in the home for just six months until her death on August 5, 1962.
Curbed LA did some digging and found that Monroe may have paid around $90,000 for the house when she bought it (with a 15-year mortgage that had payments of $320 a month). The home last sold back in 1994 for $995,000. The home does still attract Marilyn fans eager for a peek of the home but a high wall protects it from lookie-loos.

BOMBSHELL: Marilyn Monroe, at a gathering with Bobby and John Kennedy, JFK aide Arthur Schlesinger (far right) and Harry Belafonte, starred in a porn flick in which she gave oral sex to a mystery man.

Some really like it hot.
In the sordid tradition of peddling raunchy video footage of celebrities a la Paris Hilton, a long-buried sex movie of Marilyn Monroe recently hit the market, a top collector told The Post.

An illicit copy of the steamy, still-FBI-classified reel - 15 minutes of 16mm film footage in which the original blond bombshell performs oral sex on an unidentified man - was just sold to a New York businessman for $1.5 million, said Keya Morgan, the well-known memorabilia collector who discovered the film and brokered its purchase.
The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950s. When it came to light in the mid-'60s, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had his agents spend two weeks futilely trying to prove that Monroe's sex partner was either John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy, according to declassified agency documents and interviews, Morgan said.
The silent black-and-white flick shows Monroe on her knees in front of a man whose face is just out of the shot.
He never moves into the shot, indicating that he knew the camera was there, but Monroe never looks at the lens, said Morgan, who saw the footage.
Morgan said he discovered the film while doing research for a documentary on Monroe, after talking with a former FBI agent who told him about a confidential informant who tipped G-men to the existence of the film in the mid-'60s.
The feds eventually confiscated the original footage - but not before the informant made a copy of it, which is what was just sold by his son, Morgan said.
There are heavily redacted, declassified FBI documents talking about a "French-type" film.
They state the informant "exhibited [to agents] a motion picture which depicted deceased actress Marilyn Monroe committing a perverted act upon a unknown male," Morgan said.
The informant was with at least one mobster at the time, the documents state.
According to the documents, "Former baseball star Joseph DiMaggio in the past had offered [the informant] $25,000 for this film, it being the only one in existence, but he refused the offer.
"Source advised that [redacted name of the mole] informed them that he had obtained this film prior to the time Marilyn Monroe had achieved stardom."
Morgan said he got the deceased informant's name from the former FBI agent who tipped him off to the flick - and was floored after he found the mole's son in Washington, DC, and the man retrieved a film canister from a safe-deposit box and spooled it up.
"You see instantly that it's Marilyn Monroe - she has the famous mole," Morgan said.
"She's smiling, she's very charming, she's very radiant, but she's known for being radiant," he said. "She moves away, and then it [the footage] stops."
Last month, he brokered its sale, leading the informant's son to a wealthy New York businessman who wants to keep this unseemly part of Monroe's past buried.
"He said he's just going to lock it up," Morgan said.
"He said, 'I'm not going to make a Paris Hilton out of her. I'm not going to sell it, out of respect.' "
THE REEL DEAL: FBI documents indicate that Joe DiMaggio knew of the film and offered $25,000 to buy it and bury it.
James Edward Dougherty was an American police officer who is known for being the first husband of Marilyn Monroe.

08 Jun 1952, Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA --- Marilyn Monroe, considered for excellent and obvious reasons Hollywood's most exciting blonde since Jean Harlow, looks curvy and outdoorsy as she is pictured before taking a swim in a Hollywood pool. Marilyn's swimming figured in the news earlier in the week. Actress Dorothy Arnold, former wife of Joe DiMaggio, agreed to let the Yankee immortal keep on taking their son, Joe Jr., places, as long as they stay out of glamour spots. Miss Arnold changed her mind after saying last week she would seek full custody of the boy following reports that father and son were seen swimming with the shapely Miss Monroe. DiMaggio and Miss Arnold were divorced in 1944.
(AP) A watch that Marilyn Monroe reportedly gave President Kennedy as a birthday gift has fetched $120,000 at an auction.
The gold Rolex is inscribed: "Jack, With love as always from Marilyn May 29th 1962." Kennedy was born May 29, 1917.
Bill Panagopulos, founder of the Alexander Autographs auction house, said the buyer was an East Coast collector, but he didn't release a name.
The watchcase contains a poem, written on a small piece of paper, titled, "A Heartfelt Plea on Your Birthday."
The poem reads:
"Let lovers breathe their sighs
And roses bloom and music sound
Let passion burn on lips and eyes
And pleasures merry world go round
Let golden sunshine flood the sky
And let me love
Or let me die!''
Monroe performed a sultry rendition of "Happy Birthday to You" for Kennedy on May 19, 1962, at New York's Madison Square Garden.
The actress is believed to have given the watch to Kennedy aide Kenneth O'Donnell, who passed it on to the president, Panagopulos said. But when Kennedy saw it, he told O'Donnell to "get rid of it," according to a note that was sold with the watch, Panagopulos said.
The watch, which was sold Saturday, had been expected to sell for between $40,000 to $60,000.
"It's the hardest thing I ever had to estimate," Panagopulos said. "Historic relics, especially when there is a hint of scandal attached, defy any attempt by an auctioneer to estimate their selling price."
