Miner, who claims that he heard the tapes as part of the probe into Monroe's death, says he transcribed what he recalled. He shared bits with a biographer in '84; now he hopes that excerpts that ran in the Los Angeles Times on Aug. 5 will correct the record: "This woman has been stigmatized as a suicide, reflecting on her instability. They made a nut out of her, and that's not right."
