Burial Plot For Sale Above Marilyn Monroe

A famous burial plot is being sold on the online auction site eBay.

Elsie Poncher hopes to pay off her mortgage by selling her husband's burial spot directly above Marilyn Monroe in a famed Los Angeles cemetery.

So far the bid is at over four million dollars with almost a week left in the auction.

Poncher says she will then move her husband's remains into a crypt intended for her and she will be cremated.

    Makes no sense! As soon as you die your decendants will own the crypt and sell it to someone else. You may never even be placed above Marilyn for a day. ..... Hmmm, I wonder what I could get for my Great Grandfathers plot in Arlington?

    Isn't it supposed to be your final resting place? Not an opportunity for you widow to make a few bucks later on by having you moved to a cheaper plot.
