I doubt that Marilyn Monroe was anything but a confused, drug-addicted person, amazed by the stars, with some gifts and talents that the Kennedy boys enjoyed. But she could have been so obsessed with them that she would have threatened to tell something of what she knew and did get the attention of the people and the media. There was a general lack of knowledge about the nature of JFK’s drug use and sexual antics even after his death. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was managed and accepted, or requested by the Kennedy clan. They still value his image even though Old Joe has been exhibited at Arts & Entertainment. Maybe Maria Shriver and Arnold are running for president. However, it is important to note that Mary Jo Kopechne figures prominently on the subject. Perhaps he intended to leak a lot more about the Kennedy clan.

“Smathers also betrayed JFK for Marilyn Monroe. According to Sarah Churchill’s recently published book, The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe (2004), it was Smathers who first leaked the story to the press on the matter. The story first appeared in an article by Dorothy Kilgallen the day before Monroe’s death (Kilgallen was to die in circumstances similar to Monroe’s on November 8, 1965).

Why should Smathers do this? One possibility is that Smathers was trying to link JFK to Monroe’s death. According to Matthew Smith’s Victim: The Secret Tapes of Marilyn Monroe (2003), the CIA was involved in a plot to implicate the Kennedys in Monroe’s death as punishment for the Bay of Pigs disaster.

If Smathers was involved in any conspiracy to kill JFK, one would expect people close to him like Grant Stockdale {assaulted vending machine owner who was in a position to expose many things after JFK’s death and who was eliminated.} For find out about that. One person who may have discovered what was going on was his secretary, Mary Jo Kopechne, and his roommate, Nancy Carole Tyler, who was Bobby Baker’s secretary. According to Penn Jones, it was Kopechne and Tyler who leaked the story that JFK replaced LBJ with Smathers as vice president. {I have no doubt about LBJ’s involvement in the JFK assassination.}

Nancy Carole Tyler died in a plane crash near Ocean City, Maryland, on May 10, 1965.

Kopechne became Robert Kennedy’s secretary. She was to die in Edward Kennedy’s car on July 18, 1969 “(1).
