Who was Jayne Mansfield?
In Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, on April 19, 1933, Jayne Mansfield was born Vera Jayne Palmer. She wed Paul Mansfield when she was 17 years old. Mansfield was just 21 when she and Paul moved to Hollywood, but she was already married and a mother. In the beginning, Jayne Mansfield had trouble getting opportunities in Hollywood. She was one of the first Playboy bunnies, though, and wasn’t hesitant to exploit her advantages. Mansfield received the Playboy’s Playmate of the Month award in February 1955, which was the beginning of her success. She learned the violin and piano in addition to five languages and said she had a 163 IQ.
What led up to her death?
Mansfield had a television appearance arranged on the next day and was traveling to New Orleans from Biloxi, where she was doing a standing engagement at a local nightclub. Three of Mansfield’s children, with her ex-husband Mickey Hargitay, traveling with her and Samuel S. Brody, her lawyer and companion, in Stevens’ 1966 Buick Electra, which Ronald Harrison was driving. The Electra struck the cargo truck from behind as it traveled along a dark section of road, maybe hidden from Harrison’s vision by a machine spraying a dense white fog to ward off mosquitoes.
Her Tragic Death
From the impact, her three children, Mickey, Zoltan, and Marie, all appeared asleep in the back seat and were injured but alive. The driver, Jayne Mansfield, and her boyfriend were all pronounced dead at the spot. Mansfield’s death was the subject of speculations that spread quickly when photos of the accident were made public. One of them is that Mansfield night has been beheaded because of how her wig was launched from the automobile, which would warrant a wrongful death lawyer. However, Mansfield’s death certificate listed the cause of death as a crushed skull with avulsion.
