Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson)
(June 1, 1926 – August 4, 1962)

Actress, model, and singer Marilyn Monroe was famous for
playing comic "
blonde bombshell" characters. She became
one of the most popular
sex symbols of the 1950s and early
1960s. Although she was a
top-billed actress for only one
decade, her films grossed $200 million (equivalent to $2
billion in 2018) by the time of
her unexpected death in
1962. More than half a century later, she continues to be
a major
popular culture icon.

The 1-year-old, Angel Baylee Almon, later died in the hospital. She was one of the 168 people killed in the terrorist attack. More than 500 people were injured.

Timothy McVeigh is led from a courthouse in Perry, Oklahoma, after being charged in connection with the bombing. Two years later, he was convicted on 11 counts of murder, conspiracy and using a weapon of mass destruction. He was executed by lethal injection in 2001. His co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, was sentenced to life in prison. Both McVeigh and Nichols were former U.S. Army soldiers associated with the extreme right-wing Patriot Movement. The Patriot Movement rejects the legitimacy of the federal government and law enforcement.
