A retired CIA operative claims he assassinated actress and model Marilyn Monroe.
Normand Hodges made the confession during during his stay at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia. He is dying from an unspecified illness, according to a report posted by World News Daily Report on March 25 and picked up by the Inquisitr on Friday.
Hodges worked for the CIA for 41 years and had a high-level security clearance. He specialized in assassinations of people the government said posed a threat to national security.
Hodges allegedly killed 37 people between 1959 and 1972. He was trained as a sniper and a martial arts expert. He has experience in killing targets with explosives and poisons.
He was part of a cell of five members who carried out political assassinations in the United States. Most victims were political activists, journalists, artists, scientists and union leaders.
“We had evidence that Marilyn Monroe had not only slept with Kennedy, but also with Fidel Castro,” Hodges told World News Daily Report. “My commanding officer, Jimmy Hayworth, told me that she had to die, and that it had to look like a suicide or an overdose. I had never killed a woman before, but I obeyed orders… I did it for America! She could have transmitted strategic information to the communists, and we couldn’t allow that! She had to die! I just did what I had to do!”
Major James Hayworth died of a heart attack in 2011 and three other members of the assassination team are also dead.
The CIA is notorious for its assassination program. During the Church Committee hearings in the 1970s, it was discovered that the agency had assassinated or attempted to assassinate a number of foreign leaders, including Fidel Castro, Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba, President Sukarno of Indonesia, French President Charles de Gaulle, Jamaican President Michael Manley, Prince Sihanouk of Cambodia, Costa Rican President Jose Figueres, Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Miguel d’Escoto and Dominican Republic leader Rafael Trujillo.
