Marilyn Monroe committed suicide on 5th August 1962, according to the official report into her death. The first detective on the scene did not believe that it was suicide, however. His instincts told him that the screen goddess had been murdered. Monroe's death has been the subject of much speculation over the years. The FBI, the Mafia and even the Kennedys have at various times come under suspicion, but none of the accusations ever came to anything.

Three divorces, three miscarriages and a string of rejections caused Marilyn such emotional turmoil that her mental health suffered massively. Surviving on pills and sleeping tablets, she became increasingly erratic and unreliable which meant that the prospect that she died of an overdose, wouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

However, many people recall seeing Robert Kennedy at her house the night of her death. And as she threatened to reveal all about her affairs with the Kennedys, the suspicion that they had something to do with her death became more and more prevalent.

Marilyn Monroe: The Missing Evidence reveals the shocking content of the lost tapes recorded inside Marilyn Monroe's house on the day she died, through the testimony of Hollywood insider Ray Strait. The contents of tape recordings suggest her psychiatrist may have been responsible for her death, working under pressure from eminent individuals in high places.

This one-off special investigates the evidence that supports some of the world’s most notorious conspiracy theories, which could change how people think about her death forever.

‘Marilyn Monroe: The Missing Evidence’ airs Wednesday 2nd September at 10pm on TV3.
