Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe's Tomb Fetches $4.6 Million Bid On eBay

August 25, 2009 Marilyn Monroe

The online bidding for the crypt above Marilyn Monroe's tomb at the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park cemetery reached $4.6 million on Monday.

The crypt belongs to the husband of 80-year-old Elsie Poncher, who decided to transfer the remains to a nearby plot and sell the vault on eBay to generate $1.6 million as mortgage payment for her Beverly Hills home.

Poncher said paying the mortgage will free her kids from any financial obligation to the property.

The bidding started on Aug. 14 at $500,000.

The iconic sexy actress took her own life by drug overdose in 1962. She was 36. Poncher's husband died at age 80, about 23 years ago and his body was placed on his tomb facing down as if looking at the blonde bombshell.
