The FBI top secret FOREIGN COUNTER-INTELLIGENCES files on the life and death of MARILYN MONROE have mysteriously disappeared. Associated Press has been trying to gain access to the secret files in remembrance of the 50th anniversary of Marilyn’s death on Aug. 5 under the Freedom of Information Act.

But after several requests and an appeal, The FBI says it no longer has the files it compiled on Monroe.

Yet the National Archives — the usual destination for such material — told AP it doesn’t have The Monroe Files either.

The most recent version of the files, all heavily redacted, is publicly available on the FBI’s website, The Vault.

The FBI’s continued censorship of its Monroe files as the law enforcement agency has not given “any legal or factual analysis of the foreseeable harm that might result from the release of the full records” is puzzling to not only the most dedicated MM-ophiles but dedicated conspiracy buffs as well.

The unstable Monroe’s undeniable star power propelled fears she might be recruited by the Communist Party during the reign of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

 Multiple files were compiled on her activities with known mobsters, Frank Sinatra, The Kennedy Brothers (both JFK and Bobby) and her shaky marriage to lefty playwright Arthur Miller.

The FBI began compiling Monroe’s file in 1955 and continues up until the months before her death.

As The ENQUIRER reported previously there have been two major government investigations into Monroe’s demise — the original inquiry immediately after death in 1962 and one made  by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office in 1982.

The DA’s second inquiry reviewed all FBI files available regarding her mysterious death.

The records, the DA’s office noted, were “heavily censored.”
