The Shocking Details of Marilyn Monroe Death

The Police Were Not the First to Be Notified of Her Death

The police weren’t notified of the death until after Monroe’s psychiatrist Dr. Greenson and physician Dr. Hyman Engelberg had visited her home. The Los Angeles Police Department was called around 4:25am, almost an hour and a half from when Monroe was found unresponsive by her housekeeper at 3am. During that time Eunice Murray, Dr. Greenson, and Dr. Engelberg were alone at the scene.

When Sergeant Jack Clemmons inquired as to why police hadn’t been notified earlier, he was told by Greenson that he “had to get permission from the publicity department at the studio before he could notify anyone.”
