In August of 1962 the once bright light of "candle in the wind" Marilyn Monroe - Hollywood bombshell, actress, and most famous woman in the world - was snuffed out forever when the 36-year-old superstar was found dead in her Los Angeles home, possibly of suicide or misadventure due to barbiturate overdose.
Or was it?
What really happened to Marilyn Monroe? Was she suicidal, did she accidentally OD...or was she killed in a cold-blooded murder? And if so, why?
Inspired by the release of the controversial Netflix film Blonde, Carrie investigates the tragic life and death of this iconic megastar and the conspiracy theories surrounding her untimely demise, including allegations toward the Kennedys, J Edgar Hoover, Jimmy Hoffa, Sam Giancana, and...aliens???
