London, May 8 (IANS) The last ever photos of screen icon Marilyn Monroe are expected to fetch thousands of dollars in an online auction.
Four rare pictures of the “Some Like It Hot” star at the Cal Neva resort in Nevada just five days before her death have been released by legendary pianist Buddy Greco, reports

The pictures were part of a set of 36 photos taken of Monroe and Frank Sinatra during the summer of 1962 but only six remain, as the other 30 were stored in a safe-deposit box at the World Trade Center in New York and were destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.

Greco has put the prints - four of Monroe and two of Sinatra - up for auction with a starting bid of $7,500 (5,000 pounds).

Monroe died reportedly from an overdose of barbiturates Aug 5, 1962.
