The below photo is widely known and accepted to be that of Marilyn Monroe upon the conclusion of her autopsy performed by L.A. County Coroner Thomas Naguchi, the so-called coroner to the stars. Dr. Noguchi also performed the same procedures on Natalie Wood, Robert F. Kennedy, Janis Joplin, John Belushi, Sharon Tate and others. Basically if you died in Los Angeles during the '60s, '70s, or '80s, you were worked over post-mortem by Dr. Noguchi.
That these photos don't look like her can be attributed to the fact that Medical Examiners are not very careful during their examinations. Also, upon death, the muscles and other tissue surrounding the face do funny things like pull, stretch, loosen, sag, etc often distorting the likeness of the body's facial features.
