In an explosive revelation, Normand Hodges, a retired CIA has come out with the controversial claim of assassinating American actress and model Marilyn Monroe.

The fiery confession was made during his stay at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, while he was on deathbed languishing from an unspecified illness.

Expelling the reason for murdering Monroe, the CIA sleuth said, “We had evidence that Marilyn Monroe had not only slept with Kennedy, but also with Fidel Castro.

“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!”

Hodges said that, while Marilyn was asleep, he snuck into her bedroom and injected the Hollywood actress with a huge dose of the barbiturate, Nembutal, combined with a powerful sedative known as chloral hydrate.

Marilyn Monroe died at home in her bedroom on August 5, 1962 between midnight and 1:00 AM.

Hodges said he and four other CIA operatives carried out political assassinations across the country.

According to Normand, the majority of the victims were union leaders, political activists, and journalists. However, he confessed that some scientists and artists, whose thoughts and actions threatened the interests of the United States, were also on the hit list.

All the four CIA operatives that worked in conjunction with Hodges are either dead or missing.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
