Eternal resting spot next to Marilyn Monroe to be auctioned
http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090815/en_afp/entertainmentusfilmpeopleoffbeat

Want to spend eternity next to Marilyn Monroe? Now you can, because the burial spot located just above the ill-fated starlet is going on sale for a cool 500,000 dollars on auction website eBay.

The tomb in the Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles is currently occupied by one Richard Poncher, who died 23 years ago aged 81, The Los Angeles Times reported.

But his widow is having his body moved over one spot and auctioning the site above Monroe's, hoping to earn enough to pay off her 1.6-million-dollar Beverly Hills home.

"Here is a once in a lifetime and into eternity opportunity to spend your eternal days directly above Marilyn Monroe," the sale advertisement on the site says. Bidding starts at 500,000 dollars.

Elsie Poncher, who prefers not to give her age but admits she is over 70, told the Times that her husband, a successful business man, bought the crypt from baseball player Joe DiMaggio, Monroe's ex-husband, in 1954.
