Marilyn Monroe is one of the most famous actresses of the 1950’s. Known for her beauty and style, Marilyn definitely left her mark on the entertainment industry.
Her death in 1962 of a barbiturate overdose left millions of fans devastated that they would never again be able to see her.
Or would they?
Many of her fans have reported Marilyn Monroe ghost sightings…
Marilyn’s Untimely Death
At the young age of 36, Marilyn was found dead in her home by her housekeeper. A bottle of sleeping pills was next her, indicating that her death was a suicide.
However, upon further investigation, some authorities suggest that her death may have been an accident, or perhaps even murder.
Marilyn had a troubled youth, and her angst continued throughout her successful modelling and acting career, as well as through her love life.
These affairs may have been what led to her death, as her involvement with the brothers would have been extremely detrimental to JFK’s political career.
Throughout her career, Marilyn always appeared to be happy and cheerful, while in reality she was hiding her pain. Perhaps this is why she haunts certain places?
Home in Brentwood
The presence of Marilyn has been felt several times at her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
This is the only house Marilyn ever owned, and she put a great deal of energy into making it a home, including several trips to Mexico for authentic furnishings.
This is also where the star died, so it is highly likely that she spends much of her time in her former home.
She has even been seen peeking over the gate at passers by, and a life-like form of her has been seen on the sidewalk.
Several psychics who have visited the home say that Marilyn insists her death was accidental, and not suicide.
Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
The most Marilyn sightings have been reported at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, likely because this is where Marilyn spent a great deal of time.
She lived in the hotel for two years as her modelling career took off. Specifically, she haunts suite 1200, the room she requested when she stayed in the hotel.
One of the most common places to see the celebrity is in a full-length mirror that hangs in the room, which Marilyn reportedly purchased during her stay at the hotel.
The first sighting was shared by a hotel employee, who had been cleaning the mirror.
She saw a blonde woman reflected in the mirror, yet when she turned around there was no one there. Turning back to the mirror, the employee could still see the woman.
Even after the mirror was moved to the lobby, Marilyn still appears. Several guests have seen her as they enter the hotel. Sometimes she is posing for them, and sometimes she is admiring herself.
The blonde bombshell has also been spotted walking through the bar and dancing in the ballroom.
Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame
Marilyn has also been encountered at her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A faint but distinct pink mist has been reported floating around her star, as well as in front of her grave.
At one time her Cadillac was on display near the star, and several tourists took photos of the iconic car. After reviewing the photos, they saw Marilyn posing in the back seat of the car.
She appeared to have turned to face the photographers to be part of their pictures.
Cabin at Lake Tahoe
A cabin at the Cal Neva resort at Lake Tahoe is also a favorite place of Marilyn’s and has been included in several accounts of paranormal activity.
Visitors report feeling someone standing close to them, and paranormal investigators have found high levels of Electromagnetic Field readings.
Visitors and staff have also heard Marilyn singing, and some have spotted her swimming in the private pool.
Whether Marilyn’s death was suicide, murder, or accidental, her spirit is still highly active in Los Angeles.
From her home to the hotel she temporarily lived in, Marilyn has no trouble exploring the city that launched her career.
She is likely to continue visiting her favorite places, so there is no end in sight for Marilyn Monroe ghost sightings.
