Marilyn Monroe and Bobby Kennedy had a huge fight on the day of her death. The fight, along with a recording of Monroe and President John F. Kennedy having sex, was allegedly caught on tape by famed detective Fred Otash.
According to new reports, Fred Otash, who famously captured Rock Hudson's gay confession on tape, claims to have caught some shocking interactions between Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedy brothers as well. Otash, who, at the time, was tasked with tapping into Peter Lawford's Malibu home, accidentally stumbled upon the silver screen siren and the former president having sex. "When the original Lawford house was wired, [Marilyn] Monroe was not part of the plan," Otash insisted in a note. "It was to find out what the Democrats were up to on behalf of Howard Hughes and Nixon. Monroe became a by-product."
But Marilyn Monroe and JFK's sex scene was only one component of Otash's sensational findings. While conducting surveillance on the day of Monroe's death, Otash became a virtual witness to a violent confrontation between Marilyn Monroe and JFK's brother, Bobby Kennedy. Marilyn Monroe "said she was passed around like a piece of meat," Otash observed. "It was a violent argument about their relationship and the commitment and promises he made to her." Describing the Monroe Kennedy fight further, Otash wrote: "She was really screaming and they [Bobby Kennedy and Peter Lawford] were trying to quiet her down. She's in the bedroom and Bobby [Kennedy] gets the pillow and he muffles her on the bed to keep the neighbors from hearing." Finally, according to Otash, the Marilyn Monroe and Bobby Kennedy's fight subsided. "She finally quieted down and then he was looking to get out of there."
Although Marilyn Monroe and Bobby Kennedy's fight finally came to a close, Otash realized, in hindsight, that he had "listened to Marilyn Monroe die." Otash learned later that Marilyn Monroe was dead when Lawford requested that he remove any incriminating evidence from her house. Otash's final recordings of Monroe and the Kennedy brothers have still not been found. Marilyn Monroe died on August 5, 1962. She is presumed to have committed suicide.
