Bizarre conspiracy theory claims Marilyn Monroe may have died at Lake Tahoe Resort

Marilyn Monroe was America’s sex symbol and one of the most iconic stars in the industry. But 50 years after her death, there are still conspiracy theories about how and where she died.
Some people believe she didn’t die in Los Angeles, but instead, at the Cal Neva Resort at Lake Tahoe.
Go here for the story and video by Shannon Brinias of CBS Sacramento.

In the book "Tahoe Beneath the Surface" by Scott Lankford, former Nevada State Archivist Guy Rocha is quoted on page 205 about the controversy surrounding Monroe's stay at the Cal Neva.

"The events surrounding Monroe's (final) short stay at Sinatra's Cal Neva Lodge are controversial, confusing and contested, making it very hard to separate fact from fiction. We know that she met Dean Martin briefly to discuss a movie project. Joe DiMaggio, her second husband, was there, and according to one account, there was a reconciliation and talk of marriage. Still other accounts have Peter Lawford telling Monroe that all communication with John and Bobby Kennedy was cut off. There even have been unsubstantiated claims that Monroe tried to commit suicide or was drugged while staying at the Cal Neva."
