Los Angeles, CA -- The FBI has re-issued files it kept on Marilyn Monroe, removing dozens of redactions from entries related to surveillance of the actress for communist ties.
A large section of the files obtained by The Associated Press focuses on Monroe's 1962 trip to Mexico and her emerging friendship with Frederick Vanderbilt Field, who was disinherited from his wealthy family for leftist views.
The files 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 made to investigate the claims. Los Angeles authorities concluded Monroe's death was a probable suicide.
