Eternity Atop Marilyn

An anonymous bidder on Monday won an eBay auction for the plot directly above Marilyn Monroe's at Westwood Village Memorial Park, nabbing the spot from its previous inhabitant's widow for $4.6 million. Richard Poncher's remains had been resting there since 1986, when he fulfilled his dying wish of being laid to rest "on top of Marilyn"; he allegedly threatened at the time to haunt his widow forever if she relocated him. But! Reports note that the mortgage on her Beverly Hills mansion is now paid off, so some curses may just be worth it. [BBC]
