Some ghoul has defaced the grave marker of actress Marilyn Monroe at Westwood Cemetery. This photo, which was taken by a friend about 2 weeks ago, shows that either a key or knife may have been used to deface the actresses’ marker. It’s not known if it has been repaired or replaced. If anyone has that information, please post a comment.


What can be said about a person that would do something like this to Monroe’s grave marker or to anyone’s grave for that matter.

Westwood Village Memorial Park.    (Click on ‘Continue Reading’ for more)
