$4.6 M for Crypt Above Monroe

The price for spending eternity above Marilyn Monroe is $4.6 million.

That's how much the crypt directly above the actress went for in an online auction that ended Monday.

Monroe is among a number of celebrities whose ability to generate income only grew larger after their deaths.


The eBay.com listing says the space at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery above Monroe is being vacated, making room for someone else. The listing also offers the detail that the current occupant is "looking face down on" Monroe.

Bidding for the auction started at $500,000 on Aug 14.

Monroe was laid to rest at the cemetery in 1962.

Here's a photographic look at the troubled life and successful career of a worldwide sex symbol.
