Marilyn Monroe – New revelations surrounding her death

Private eye ‘listened to Marilyn die’

Marilyn Monroe

THE publication of files belonging to one of Hollywood’s most notorious  private detectives has shed new light on the 1962 death of Marilyn Monroe  and her relationships with John F Kennedy, then the president of the United  States, and Bobby, his younger brother.

More than half a century after Monroe’s apparent suicide, a startling account  of her last day alive has emerged from the notes of Fred Otash, who had  installed bugging devices in her Los Angeles home.

“I listened to Marilyn Monroe die,” Otash claims in the notes recovered from a  suburban storage unit by his daughter Colleen more than a decade after his  death.

Files shedding new light on Marilyn Monroe’s last night alive  and her relationships with President John  F Kennedy and his younger brother Bobby have emerged 51 years after her  death.

Documents  belonging to the late Fred  Otash, one of Hollywood’s most notorious  private detectives, were uncovered by his  daughter Colleen after being found in a suburban storage unit.

According to Otash, who died in 1992, Monroe had a  relationship with the  brothers and complained about being ‘passed around like  a piece of meat’.

Otash, who had installed bugging devices in  her Los Angeles home, has long been  derided by Kennedy admirers for his claims to have listened to a tape of Monroe  and JFK in bed together.

But the notes published by The Hollywood  Reporter  magazine last week contained a detailed account of his bugging  activities and  what he heard.

Shortly before his death, he told an  interviewer: ‘They were having a  relationship … ‘ and in his notes, Otash claimed: ‘I listened  to Marilyn Monroe die.’

Fred Otash (January 7, 1922 – October 5, 1992) was a Hollywood police officer, private investigator, and author.

Otash worked for Hollywood Research Incorporated, which did business with the  magazine Confidential  He is also known for being hired by Peter Lawford to investigate the death of Marilyn Monroe.  Otash died at the age of 70 on October 5, 1992.  He wrote about his life in his memoir, Investigation Hollywood: Memoirs Of Hollywood’s Top Private Detective.


He recorded that on August 5 1962, she had a  violent argument with the Kennedys and that she felt  that she had been ‘passed  around like a piece of meat’.

The notes read: ‘She was really screaming and  they were trying to quiet her down.

‘She’s in the bedroom and Bobby gets  the  pillow and he muffles her on the bed to keep the neighbours from  hearing. She  finally quieted down and then he was looking to get out of  there.’

Otash only found out she had died later  on.

Otash claimed he had listened to Marilyn Monroe die after he had taped an argument she had with Robert Kennedy and Peter Lawford. “She said she was passed around like a piece of meat. It was a violent argument about their relationship and the commitment and promises he made to her.
