After Marilyn died, her housekeeper, Eunice Murray, said the actor had retired to her bedroom at 8 p.m. At 3 a.m., Eunice woke up and noticed that Marilyn’s bedroom door was locked and the lights were on. This caused her to become worried, so she called Dr. Ralph Greenson, who broke in through Marilyn’s bedroom window and found her already dead. The authorities were contacted at 4:25 a.m., according to police records.
Anthony questioned the accuracy of this timeline, however, after speaking to Natalie Jacobs, the wife of Arthur Jacobs, Marilyn’s agent. Natalie said she and Arthur left a Hollywood Bowl concert they were attending the night of Marilyn’s death when Arthur received an urgent call at around 10:30 p.m. Natalie then went home, while Arthur went to Marilyn’s house, she said. This timeline was later corroborated by Juliet Roswell, a colleague of Arthur’s, during a separate talk with Anthony.
“[The reported timeline is] not true because my husband was [at Marilyn’s house],” Natalie said. “My husband fudged everything off. And that I cannot tell you why because he’s no longer with us.”
“Don’t forget, that was his business – to keep the press at bay. He kept everyone in abeyance,” she added.
