had the opportunity of interviewing Donald R. Burleson,
Ph.D., by phone Thursday April 24, 2003, regarding his
new book, "UFOs and Murder of Marilyn Monroe".
Burleson has been fascinated with the death of Marilyn
Monroe for many years. In fact, as a certified UFO field
investigator, research consultant, and New Mexico State
Director for MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), he had heard
rumors of a UFO connection with Marilyn's death.
of the linchpin's of Dr. Burleson's hypothesis is a CIA
document, that has come to be known as the Marilyn Monroe
document, which mysteriously surfaced in 1994. The document
has a subject line "Marilyn Monroe" and a project
line "Moon Dust". According to Burleson, "Project
Moon Dust" had existed since 1953 and whose purpose
was the recovering of debris from fallen space vehicles,
certainly to include UFO crash debris.
to "UFOs and the Murder
of Marilyn Monroe", the document has an
apparent reference, in the routing data at the bottom
of the page to MJ-12. Click on the photos below to see
the enlargements! This reference to MJ-12 further associates
the Marilyn Monroe document with the whole question of
governmental secrecy about unidentified flying objects.

Steven Greer, director of the CSETI
(Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence)
Disclosure Project group, says in his book Extraterrestial
Contact: The Evidence and Implications that
the Marilyn Monroe document came to him in 1994 "by
way of a contact with access to NSA officials." He
further states, with reference to the question of the
document's genuineness: "It has been authenticated
by the best document researcher in the world - a man who,
for years, sat outside General Odom's door as his senior
aide when Odom was NSA head."
Burleson's work involves computer image enhancement. He
is a director of a computer lab at Eastern New Mexico
University. One day, when the Marilyn Monroe document
was being displayed, a student noticed "a sort of
smudge or shadow" to the left of the TOP SECRET stamp.
When enhaunced the imprint contained the name "Schulgen".
This proved to be another invaluable piece of UFO evidence.
Brigadier General George Schulgen was the Chief of the
Air Intelligence Requirements Division of Army Air Corps
Intelligence. His job basically was to investigate UFOs!
How did his name get on the document?
was murdered on a Saturday night. She was prepared and
had told friends that she planned to hold a news conference
on the following Monday. Several months before her death,
Marilyn had met Jose Bolanos, a Mexican film director
and screenwriter. In fact, Jose accompanied Marilyn to
the 1962 Golden Globe Awards. Jose phoned and spoke to
Marilyn around 10:00 p.m. the night of her death, and
according to Jose, she would tell the media something
that "will one day shock the whole world". One
can only speculate as to what the something was. We can
be confident it didn't concern her affairs with Bobby
or John Kennedy. Both of their wives were aware of their
infidelity. She also probably knew of the plot to kill
Fidel Castro and the Bay of Pigs, but would this be reason
enough to silence her?
Burleson believes that there is undisputed proof that
Bobby Kennedy was at the scene of Marilyn's death. Norman
Jeffries who worked with Marilyn's housekeeper Eunice
Murray and helped around the house, said that some men
came to Marilyn's house around 10:00 p.m. the night of
her death. One man recognized by Mr. Jeffries was Robert
Kennedy, who was accompanied by two men he didn't know.
Elizabeth Pillard, who lived right next door to Marilyn
and held bridge parties every Saturday night states that
she saw Bobby Kennedy and two other men walk right past
the window, headed for Marilyn's house, and one of the
men was carrying a small black bag of the sort that a
doctor would carry.
to Norman Jeffries, Bobby and the two mystery men entered
the house and ordered Norman and Eunice to leave. Marilyn
Munroe biographer Donald Wolfe quotes Norman as saying,
"I mean they made it clear we were to be gone."
This was the second time in one day that Bobby Kennedy
had ordered them out of Marilyn's house.
was waiting at a neighbor's until Kennedy and the others
left the house, which he says was about 10:30 p.m. Eunice
and Norman, feeling the "coast was clear", returned
to the house and discovered Marilyn sprawled face down,
nude, across the day bed in the guest cottage. She was
alive, but she was dying.
Burleson believes that "between the time Bobby Kennedy
and his two cohorts entered Marilyn Monroe's house around
10:00 p.m. and the time they left it around 10:30 p.m.,
a loathsome crime was committed. Marilyn was clearly not
expected to survive.

you believe in the UFO conspiracy or not, it is apparent
that Marilyn Munroe's death was due in part to information
she knew about the Kennedy brothers and tragically recorded
in her "little red" diary!
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) audio recordings taped Bobby
Kennedy and Marilyn Munroe having a violent argument which
went something like this: "Where is it? Where the
f___ is it? and things to that effect, "My family
must have it," and "We'll make any arrangements
you want," and "We'll pay you for it."
In retrospect, it's obvious that Bobby was looking for
had been a diary-keeper all her life, and her most recent
one was a little red book in which she was known to have
scribbled, among other things, notes on things she and
Bobby Kennedy had talked about, including political matters
and foreign affairs. Jeanne Carmen has recalled seeing
Bobby grab up Marilyn's red diary in her living room one
day and hurl it across the room, shouting "Get rid
mentioned before, Dr. Steven Greer came into possession
of a CIA document that dealt with Marilyn and Bobby Kennedy.
A synopsis of the document stated that: The subject (Marilyn)
would hold a press conference and would tell all; and
the subject (Marilyn) made reference to her "diary
of secrets" and what the newspapers would do with
Grandison, from the Los Angles County Coroner's Office,
was the last person recorded to have seen and examined
Marilyn's red diary. He had sent his driver to Marilyn's
house in the hopes of recovering an address book so that
relatives could be notified of Marilyn's death. Marilyn's
housekeeper Eunice Murray gave the driver an address book
and a little red diary! He stated that the diary contained
interesting references to the Kennedys and other people
(notably Fidel Castro), (but) it contained no addresses.
before leaving his office for the day, locked the diary
away in the Coroner's office safe. When he returned to
work on Tuesday, August 7, the safe was still locked but
the little red diary was gone. Marilyn's diary was never
