August 5th--The Fiftieth Anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's Death
There was unquestionably a cover-up of the facts surrounding Marilyn's death. Her telephone records disappeared the next day, witnesses gave widely divergent accounts of the events leading up to a shortly after the discovery of her body. But why? The prevailing theory is that all evidence of Marilyn's involvement with the Kennedy brothers (however intimate that was) had to be kept from the press and the public or the Kennedy presidency could be compromised.
One of the reasons I wrote my book Peter Lawford: The Man Who Kept the Secrets was Peter's involvement with Marilyn, his part in introducing her to his brothers-in-laws Jack and Bobby, and his important role in covering up the truth about her demise.
Vanity Fair excerpted the chapters in the book that dealt with Marilyn's death, and called them "the best account of Monroe's death yet."
