M. A. Jones-to DeLoach memo RE: 1tPHOTOPLAY't ARTICLE CONCERNING MARILYN MONROE'S DEATH

" The article alleges the affair between this man and Miss Monroe began during the "worst time of her life and the best time of his." The alleged ~~ was celebrating his good fortune in reaching a heightin his career "he never 1before dreamed" would be possible. The remainder of the article allegedly outlines the end of the romance and Miss Monroe's final efforts to renew the relationship. The article states that she telephoned the man on Sunday night, August 5, 1962, and when he said he would"not leave his wife and could not see Miss Monroe "any more;' she swallowed a "handful" of sleeping pills. The article claims she later called the man agaln, implying that she told him of having taken the pills, only to have him hang up on her and states" that the last sound she heard was the "buzzing of the receiver in her hand." after the man broke the telephone connection. The article states that Miss Monroet s housekeeper has'varushed" and that her publicity agent, Pat Newcombe, is now working in" Washington, D. C. " It says her second husband, Joe _~o;-:;istheonly_one"Jvho remains faithful and that the n:namwho killed Miss MonroeUfstill at large and can never be arrested." But, the article asserts, "Wherever he goes, whatever he touches, whomever he sees; he thinks of Marilyn. His guilt never leaves him, his fear has become his friend. ff RECOMMENDATION: For information:

., 'c.: >.-.r.._

llshed in JulJ, 1984, entitled "The Strange Death of MarUyn Monroe" by E'rank A. CapelL These allegations were branded false and no fa.ctual support exlsted for them. MaUer, In his new book, has repeated some of these same rwnors and has given them a bizarre twlst.
As to whether Miss Monroe took her own Ufe, Mailer answers "possibly" .. and then suggests other posslbUttles. One of these is the suggestion, that the FBI, CIA or the N'JafIa found It of lnterest that Robert Kennedy, brothel" of the President John Kennedy. was reputed to be having an affalr wfth the movie star.
