A NEW book has wildly claimed that Marilyn Monroe was assassinated because she knew UFO secrets that President John F Kennedy had told her.
The icon’s death at 36 years old has long been a source of all kinds of conspiracy theories, and many allege that it was due to her relationship with the president, as well as with his brother Bobby.

Diary of Secrets: UFO Conspiracies and the Mysterious Death of Marilyn Monroe claims Monroe was murdered because she was deemed a national security threat.
Monroe was said to be murdered by the US government “because of her being told Government secrets … One of them being about crashed UFOs and strange dead bodies held at military bases,” said author Nick Redfern, as reported by WFMZ-TV.
While Monroe’s death was officially ruled a drug overdose, Redfern says the CIA made it look as such.
He is not the first author to claim Monroe was killed because of her UFO knowledge.
Donald Burleson’s book UFOs and the Murder of Marilyn Monroe makes similar claims.
Burleson “employs CIA and FBI documents to demonstrate that Marilyn did not commit suicide (as commonly claimed), but rather was murdered by government officials to silence her about highly classified things she knew about UFO crash retrievals,” says the book’s description.

Redfern’s claims come as more people have been reporting UFO sightings.
Earlier this week bizarre footage appearing to show a “UFO tractor beam” over a Chinese airport sent locals into a frenzy.
The eerie sight unfolded in the city of Shenyang and was captured on film by bewildered witnesses.
Also earlier this week a mysterious building was spotted on Google Earth, with one user likening it to the tic-tac UFO sightings.
In the clip, YouTube user Mr MBB333 says: “These pods reminded me of the tic-tac UFO that was seen by the Navy.
“They got the same shape, another one here, got the white shape…reminded me of the things that were spotted by the pilots.”
