Eunice is probably one of the most debated about characters in the Monroe saga. She changed her story multiple times, she was considered evasive in the police report, and she was known to have a Greenson connection. What did she know? What didn't she know? Innocent pawn or scheming mastermind.
Eunice Murray had been married to John Murray, a want to be priest who left Yale Divinity School to become a carpenter. In 1946 Eunice and John completed building their home at 902 Franklin Street in Brentwood. Four months later they could no longer afford their home. The home was sold to Ralph Greenson for $16,500. Eunice and John separated and divorced in 1950. With no education, no job, and an attachment to her former home. Greenson immediately hired her as a housekeeper for himself as well as a companion for some of his clients.
As a companion Eunice was expected to report every movement that Greenson's clients made. That combined with Marilyn's need for privacy did not set them up to have the best relationship.Eunice was temporarily let go while Marilyn went to New York to sing to JFK. She then informed Marilyn on August 1, 1962 that she was going to Europe on August 6 for a few weeks and would be back in September. Some sources say that Eunice was told not to come back but considering she spent an additional 3 days with Marilyn I find this to be unlikely.
So what is the truth?
