There's Possible Evidence Marilyn Monroe's Death 43 Years Ago Was Not A Suicide

LOS ANGELES (AP)_A former prosecutor says Marilyn Monroe, who died 43 years ago of an apparent overdose, might not have killed herself.

Now, on the anniversary of her death, John Miner says he'd like another autopsy performed. And, he says he thinks the large dose of barbiturates found in her body may have been administered by someone else.

Miner is unveiling what he says are notes of her secret confessions to a psychiatrist that show her as anything but suicidal.

He tells the Los Angeles Times the notes show a motivated actress who wanted to do Shakespearean plays and promised her psychiatrist that she had thrown all her "pills in the toilet." That's a possible reference to her reported drug dependency.
