No New Probe in Monroe Death
The Grand Jury has decided not to reopen the investigation into the 1962 drug-overdose death of Marilyn Monroe, officials said today.
Jury foreman Charles Richardson informed the Board of Supervisors of the jury’s decision in a a letter earlier this week. Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner earlier said he opposed a new investigation into the actress’ death. Supervisors had asked the Grand Jury to review a letter from Robert Slatzer, a consultant for the TV news magazine “20-20,” who claimed that he was once married to Monroe and had new evidence in her death.
