On the evening of the 4th of august 1962, Marilyn retreated to her bedroom with her telephone and perhaps a bottle of pills. She made servile phone calls. Most of which were final goodbyes. One of the phone calls she made was to Peter Lawford. He was the man that introduced her to the Kenney's brothers. He felt it sounded like a final goodbye and became stressed by the phone call. Lawford contacted Marilyn's agent instead of going to check on her himself. Her agent contacted the house around 9pm. Marilyn's housekeeper, Eunice, answered the phone and assumed Marilyn was ok as the phone cord was trailing into her bedroom. It so happens that the phone records disappeared that night. They were confiscated from the phone company and the police were unable to identify whom Marilyn called that night.

They contained capsules of Nembutal and Chloral hydrate. When the police were making enquires they noticed that there was no running water in Marilyn's house that night. It was have been impossible for Marilyn to swollen the capsules and there had also been no drinking glass found in the room. Eunice was questioned as to why she was tidying the house the night of her death.
