The story provides an unprecedented inside look at the massive cover-up Grandison witnessed and how the official Coroner's investigation was sabotaged to hide the truth about Marilyn Monroe's death.
Grandison’s knowledge of the Monroe case spans 50 years, with him being one of the last remaining public officials directly involved in the original investigation. At only 22 years of age, he was thrust into this intricate conspiracy plot, forced to sign Marilyn's death certificate and set-up to pay a huge price because of it.
Never has Marilyn’s story been told through the eyes of somebody who actually participated in the official investigation. The book reveals Grandison’s personal and professional relationships with key people involved in the case including his former boss, Los Angeles County Chief Medical Examiner Theodore Curphey, and Dr. Thomas Noguchi who performed Marilyn’s autopsy.
His compelling story offers stunning new information about what transpired at the Coroner’s office and how this mammoth cover-up unfolded. Grandison clarifies many misconceptions about this complex case and provides incredible details about the inner-workings of the Los Angeles County Coroner in 1962. His insight into Marilyn Monroe’s death is riveting. The book includes stunning new information about her autopsy, original toxicology reports and Grandison's discovery of Marilyn's secret diary, which the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office had in its possession.
Lionel Grandison was the last public official to see Marilyn’s secret diary, which arrived with her personal property. The diary depicted a high stakes secret life being lived by Marilyn and her knowledge of sensitive government issues, which may have gotten her killed. In his book, Grandison reveals the explosive contents of Marilyn's diary, which includes Marilyn’s chilling involvement with the Kennedys, FBI, CIA and Mafia members.
“Memoirs of a Deputy Coroner: The Case of Marilyn Monroe” describes a shocking chain-of-events leading up to Marilyn's death and how the cover-up began from the moment she died. The book exposes the complex web of deceit surrounding Marilyn’s case, which now has been untangled by Grandison's experiential knowledge and years of investigative work.
The book provides an in-depth analysis of how the Coroner’s Office, L.A. Police Department and District Attorney played key roles in the cover up surrounding Marilyn’s death. It was Grandison’s allegations of improprieties by the Los Angeles County Coroner led to a District Attorney’s Inquiry into Monroe’s death in 1982. His book exposes the shortcomings of that investigation and how D.A. investigators never tried to uncover the truth. “
The information is mind-boggling and connects the dots where many journalists have failed. Readers will discover a side of Marilyn Monroe they never imagined, while gaining a true understanding of her complicated life and what most likely caused her death.
