The $4.6 million bid for the crypt above Marilyn Monroe has fallen through.

Attorney David Camel says the bidder declined. Camel represents Elsie Poncher, who was auctioning off her late husband’s crypt at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery on eBay.com.

Camel says he’s working with eBay to resolve the outcome of the auction. He also says there are no plans to move Poncher’s husband until a new occupant is found.

Bidding for the auction started at $500,000 on Aug 14. The final bid was $4,602,100 on Monday.
