    That's how much the crypt directly above the actress went for in an online auction that ended Monday.

    The listing says the space at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery above Monroe is being vacated, making room for someone else. The listing also offers the detail that the current occupant is "looking face down on" Monroe.

    Monroe was laid to rest at the cemetery in 1962.
