Marilyn Monroe 'suicide'

Whoever wrote this obit for Marilyn Monroe clearly doesn't know that her death
was immediately up for speculation on Aug 5 1962 and i may have the DOD incorrect by a day.
Years of forenci science have all but said her death was murder.
to claim she took her life without a cloud of proof gives one pause as to why
a statement like this would still be written in 2013.
but i would like to thank this person...for its been quite sometime
since i have had the opportuntiy to be so highly embarrassed for them, for clearly
they don't have the common sense to be embarrassed for themself.
