More Monroe FBI files show extent of monitoring

LOS ANGELES — FBI files on Marilyn Monroe that could not be located earlier this year have been found and reissued, revealing names of some of the movie star’s communist-leaning acquaintances who drew concern from government officials and her own entourage.

But the files, which had been heavily redacted, do not contain any new information about Monroe’s death 50 years ago. Letters and news clippings included in the file show the bureau was aware of theories the actress had been killed, but they do not show that any effort was undertaken to investigate the claims. Los Angeles authorities concluded Monroe’s death was probably a suicide.
