New details about Marilyn Monroe’s romance with the Kennedy brothers and the last day of her life

«At the peak of Hollywood’s brightest stars in the 1950s, including Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, the Kennedy brothers, Lana Turner, and Judy Garland, they all had their skeletons in the closet, writes People.

What really happened on the night of Marilyn Monroe’s death? Did she truly have an affair with John F. Kennedy? Did Lana Turner kill her abusive mobster boyfriend, or was it her daughter Cheryl?

These questions still haunt many. In the new revealing book «The Fixer: Moguls, Mobsters, Movie Stars, and Marilyn,» the most shocking stories from police and private detective Fred Otash are unveiled based on his previously unpublished investigation materials.

How Otash helped find Marilyn

During the filming of the movie ‘Bus Stop,’ E. Maurice ‘Buddy’ Adler panicked and went to Otash, explaining that Marilyn Monroe hadn’t been seen or heard from for 24 hours, including by her husband, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller.»

«According to the book, ‘Marilyn’s erratic behavior on set had already cost Adler too much time and money, and her recent hospitalization during filming in Idaho due to nervous tension led to the film’s budget being exceeded,’ the book says. ‘Adler said he would have fired her and recast the role if he could, but there was no turning back now.’

Otash went through lists of travel agencies and found a certain ‘Pearl Baker’ — Monroe’s mother. The actress was found in her hotel room. She ‘lay naked on the bed, frozen in a fetal position, and needles, syringes, and other drug paraphernalia were scattered around the room. Quickly checking her pulse and determining that she was unconscious, he covered her body with a sheet.’

Monroe was quietly taken to the hospital for ‘detoxification’ and returned to the set a few days later.

Affair with Kennedy

In ‘The Fixer,’ the author also writes about John F. Kennedy’s brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, whom Otash called ‘Jack Kennedy’s sexual archivist.'»

At that time, Kennedy used the Lawford family’s house in Santa Monica as a «de facto office on the West Coast, a relaxation spot, and a center of Hollywood hospitality.»

Otash’s associate, John Danoff, captured on video a «sexual encounter» between Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. They first met at a party in Los Angeles when Kennedy’s wife, Jackie, was at home in Boston. Their friendship remained platonic until two years later when they began an affair at a party held at Lawford’s beach house.

Later, Otash explained: «My job was to develop a dossier that would show that John Kennedy had serious moral shortcomings. In other words, they needed audio recordings of the guy fucking someone other than his wife.

Death of Marilyn

On the night of August 4, 1962, a drunken Lawford walked into Otash’s house saying, «I think Marilyn is dead.»

Otash, who had previously bugged Monroe’s house, recognized exactly what had happened that night. Robert F. Kennedy, who was having an affair with Monroe, asked Lawson to «take her out of the house to his place to keep her quiet» so as not to embarrass him.

After numerous phone calls attempting to contact Kennedy, Lawford convinced the attorney general to fly in from San Francisco and go directly to Monroe’s house. «He banged her around eleven o’clock in the morning and then left,» Otash said on the record.

When he returned a second time, Monroe yelled at Kennedy. «Where were you when I had to have an abortion, you rascal bastard!» Marilyn yelled as Lawford and Bobby tried to calm her down.

Despite saying, «Let’s have dinner later,» Kennedy had no intention of seeing Monroe again. «Peter secretly drove him to where the helicopter was waiting for him. He wouldn’t have been anywhere near Los Angeles when word of her death got out,» Otash said. «As far as I’m concerned, Bobby Kennedy could have saved her life.»

Monroe called Lawford twice, then once to John Kennedy. Finally, Monroe called Lawford one more time and said, «because you’re a good guy,» — without mentioning Bobby.

After the call, Lawford rushed to Monroe’s house. When he realized she was dead, «he started rummaging around, trying to gather anything he could that might point to someone.»

While talking to Otash, Lawford sent Reed Wilson — an undercover CIA officer — to clean up everything he found in the house and give it to Lawford. There, Wilson found «a lot» of empty pill jars.

Despite helping to handle the situation as a detective, Otash was saddened by the news of Monroe’s passing. «Otash knew her as a client, friend, confidante and, more recently, as a person of interest. He worked for her, gave her advice, spied on her, and despite all of that, admired her.»
