Mystery Still Surrounds Marilyn Monroe’s Death
Marilyn Monroe still to this day commands as much attention, if not more, than she did when she was alive. Her death still remains in a cloud of mystery , even though it was ruled a "probable suidcide." A Harvard trained forensic pshchoogist, Dr. S. David Berstein, has weighed in on a signed checked dated the day before the icon's death. The check was dated for August 4, 1962. The check was written for $228.80 for the purchase of a white chest of drawers from Pilgrim's Furniture. The psychologist suggests that this behavoir was contradictory to what someone who is conteplating suicide would do. He says it would be more consistent with someone who "isnt"suicidal." He added:
"A single item — especially something practical like a chest of drawers and of a low value like this — suggests a frame of mind of ‘I’m going to be here for awhile,’ " he said. "If I were doing a psychological autopsy, this would be intriguing. This would be more consistent with someone who is not suicidal.”
The check is a part of a 15-item collection auction that will be sold by Heritage Auction commemorating the icon's death.
