News this week revived interest in unusual story of famed star's death. Investigator not convinced she committed suicide.
John Miner, 86, told the Los Angeles Times this week that Monroe's psychologist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, had allowed him to listen to secret audiotapes made by the star during one of her therapy sessions just before her death.
"A key revelation of the alleged tapes," Miner says, "is that Monroe was not depressed."
She was, in fact, anything but suicidal according to him--very happy, and actively planning her future.
"Here is a person stigmatized by the diagnosis of suicide, when that is an absolutely wrong, false, erroneous diagnosis," he said.
The famous actress allegedly told her doctor, "You are the only person who will ever know the most private, the most secret thoughts of Marilyn Monroe.... I've read all of Shakespeare and practiced a lot of lines. … I am going to do Juliet first," Monroe allegedly said on the tape. "Don't laugh. What, with what makeup, costume and camera can do, my acting will create a Juliet who is 14, an innocent virgin."
Minor says, "No reasonable person could possibly think that the person who made those tapes killed herself."
