The crypt directly above Marilyn Monroe’s final resting place is available. Bidding starts at $500,000 on Ebay for one of the most expensive pieces of real estate on the market, based on a per-square-foot basis.
Currently occupied by Richard Poncher, his widow said that when he was dying, Poncher approached her with a request. “He said, ‘If I croak, if you don’t put me upside down over Marilyn, I’ll haunt you the rest of my life.’ ”
Right after the funeral, Mrs. Poncher told the funeral director of her husband’s wish. “I was standing right there, and he turned him over,” she said.

I just saw that this spot sold for $4.6 million! Holy cow! That’s an expensive piece of real estate – especially considering that whoever resides there won’t be able to appreciate their location once they get there!
