(Newser) – The $4.6 million bid for the crypt above Marilyn Monroe has fallen through. Attorney David Camel, who represents the widow auctioning off her late husband's crypt on eBay, says the bidder declined. Camel says he's working with eBay to resolve the outcome of the auction. He also says there are no plans to move Elsie Poncher's husband until a new occupant is found.
