The Housekeeper

Marilyn’s housekeeper Eunice Murray was a key witness but her version of events were so diverse and inconsistent that they were deemed worthless. We know that Eunice was around the night that Marilyn died. The housekeeper originally said she had knocked on Marilyn’s bedroom door at midnight and after receiving no answer called the doctor who broke in through the window after seeing Marilyn's lifeless body.

However, Eunice Murray changed her version of events and then said that she actually went to bed at midnight and called Dr Greenson at 3am when she saw Marilyn's bedroom light on was left on.

She went on to change her story many times and according to police reports, Murray was vague and extremely evasive. Was she being puppeted by somebody?

Eunice Murray took part in a 1985 BBC Investigation into Marilyn's death. She told the same 1962 version of events. However, not realising her microphone was still on at the end and she saw the cameras being packed away she said "Why, at my age, do I still have to cover this thing?"

Apparently she admitted that Monroe was not dead when the doctor arrived but she never revealed any more information and died in 1994.
