More than 50 years after her death, we're still talking about the iconic Marilyn Monroe. And for good reason. Her death on August 5, 1962 remains a mystery. In 2017, Marilyn's Los Angeles home was sold for £5.8 million.
Marilyn Monroe lived there for 6 months, until she died. The Brentwood mansion is part of a 2,000 m2 property. The hacienda-style house had been acquired by Marilyn shortly before her death. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a huge garden and a swimming pool.
This house is the heart of the mystery
Since Marilyn Monroe passed away, the hacienda has had seven different owners. Among them, Veronica Hamel who, during renovations, had discovered a monitoring system in each room. A discovery that has fed doubts about Marilyn's situation.
Marilyn gave her last interview to Life magazine in 1962. While the "probable suicide" hypothesis has stuck, there are several other theories out there, even though the circumstances of her death remain unclear. 50 years later, there's still a lot of doubt surrounding the woman who, even now, arouses fascination.
"Here ends my path"
A tile that was at the entrance when Marilyn bought the house reads Cursum Perficio, which means: "here ends my path."
