The story made headlines around the globe: Marilyn Monroe, the world's most celebrated starlet, had apparently committed suicide.
But many who knew her didn't believe she'd take her own life, and as the 50th anniversary of her death at age 36 approaches, her tragic end remains shrouded in mystery.
In the new issue of PEOPLE, guest writer J.I. Baker – author of The Empty Glass, a new murder thriller based on her death – uses his research and fresh reporting to explore the truth.
On August 5, 1962, Monroe was found dead in the bedroom of her Brentwood hacienda.
Toxicology reports showed high levels of Nembutal and chloral hydrate in her bloodstream, and her death was ruled a "probable suicide." But why wasn't her body turned over to medical examiners for more than five hours after it was discovered?
Forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht tells PEOPLE he has "a strong suspicion she might have been injected," given the lack of pill residue found in her stomach – but by whom?
Why did not-yet-tested tissue samples go missing, along with Monroe's phone records? And were Jack and Bobby Kennedy, with whom she was rumoured to have had affairs, involved?
I guess we may never know!

By presenting several raw clips from the studio recordings, this sequence provides some insight how music and variety programs were produced and assembled during the heyday of this genre. Absent are the audience reactions, sound effects and titles that were added later during post-production editing of the final show.
