Most people hear the word “conspiracy” and think of an assumption of a made up story or almost like an urban legend. According to Merriam Webster, the definition of “conspiracy” is an agreement between two or more people to commit an unlawful act to accomplish a lawful end by unlawful means. This definition will play a key role in, the late superstar, Marilyn Monroe’s death.
Marilyn Monroe was born on the first of June in the year of 1926. In her youth she was also known as “Norma Jeane Baker. Marilyn Monroe resided in Los Angeles, California. Monroe spent very little time with her biological family. At approximately two weeks old, Monroe was placed in the first of many foster homes, guardianships, and orphanages. Due to the unbalance of her youth, she suffered an insecure childhood leading to sexual molestation and a very early marriage.
