Jack Clemmons (February 2, 1924 – April 10, 1998) was a police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department. He was the first to arrive at the death scene of Marilyn Monroe on August 5, 1962. He was with the LAPD for 20 years, from 1945 to 1965. Clemmons thought that Monroe was murdered and that her room was a staged death scene. He made some major accusations that the LAPD were involved in a cover up . He stated: "Somebody murdered her. It was an out and out case of murder!"
Clemmons claimed that when he entered Monroe's house, her housekeeper was washing the laundry, and that Monroe's room appeared as though it had been cleaned prior to his arrival: "Marilyn was lying face down in what I call the soldier's position. Her hands were by her side and her legs were stretched out perfectly straight. It was the most obviously staged death scene I have ever seen. The pill bottles on her bedside table had been arranged in neat order and the body deliberately positioned. It all looked too tidy."
