  • Russo also claimed the RFK hired a mob assassin nicknamed “the doctor” to kill Monroe
  • There are many problems with Russo’s claims and yet Mark Shaw gives his story credence
  • Russo claimed that Marilyn attacked Bobby Kennedy in his presence at Cal-Neva Lodge
  • And Mark Shaw claims that both “Sam Giancana and RFK” were at the lodge which is patently false
  • Thomas Noguchi performed the autopsy on Monroe
  • Sgt. Jack Clemmons was the first police officer to arrive at the scene
  • Eunice Murray, Monroe’s housekeeper was not involved in the sale of MM’s home

  • Clemmons also testified in the 80s that he saw Eunice Murray washing Marilyn’s sheets
  • Marilyn didn’t own a washing machine or a dryer
  • Maurice Reis, Frank Capell and Jack Clemmons propagated the RFK-Monroe affair hoax
  • There is no evidence backing their claims; just gossip and innuendo
  • Frank Capell’s book The Strange Death of Marilyn Monroe came out in 1964
  • This book places RFK as a conspirator to murder Marilyn Monroe
  • Mark Shaw repeats Capell’s claims
  • Capell accuses RFK as the “most dangerous commie of them all”
  • Shaw uses “cropped and wrongly located” as evidence to support his claims
  • Shaw’s footnotes / references are very skimpy; only a paragraph or two for each chapter
  • Mark Shaw’s theory about how Monroe was killed
