Here's one of the version about the analysis of those documents, tending to prove the murder :
According to Abernethy's report, the chemical analysis clearly shows that the blood contained 4.5mg barbiturates in 100ml of blood and 8mg of chloral hydrate in 100ml of blood.
The analysis by computer reveals that
Marilyn should have ingested 27 to 42 Nembutal tablets and 14 to 23
chloral hydrate tablets to reach such blood concentrations.
So the blood amount reveals the ingestion of 41 to 65 tablets.
But this doesn't include the 13mg found in Marilyn's liver.
So it would have needed 11 to 24 Nembutal tablets plus to explain such a liver concentration.
So it comes to a minimum of 52 tablets and a maximum of 89 tablets needed to succumb to this lethal dose by oral ingestion.
Though, on thousand of cases due to an acute barbiturate poisining kept in the world data base, there isn't one case where more than 12 tablets would have been taken whitout finding some residues in the digestive system. In no case was found such a high concentration in blood and liver, without finding some refractile crystals and no tablets concentration in the intestine or stomach.
However, Dr Noguchi had declared that he hadn't been able to detect neither tablet residues nor crystals traces.
According to a comparative board (cf. page 60 of Don Wolfe book) Marilyn had the higher blood rate of this barbiturate. And the presence of a high chloral hydrate concentration works with synergy with pentobarbital and so increases hugely the lethal effect.
The combined doses would have used to kill 9 to 20 people.The legal medicine data base also points out that, to their knowledge, there isn't any case of fatal dose by oral ingestion leading to such a high blood concentration of the association of pentobarbital and chloral hydrate.
The victim dies before the concentration reaches this level in the blood.
Marilyn would have already died when less than 35% of the total quantity of barbiturates would have passed from her digestive system to her blood. It would have been impossible for the 65% remaining to be absorbed by the digestive system and to disappear without a trace, because then, the heart stops to beat and the blood doesn't circulate anymore : the vitals stops.
The blood absorption of what the intestine contains stops.
It would have been impossible that the rest of pentobarbital and chloral hydrate gets into the blood after an ingestion through a suppository or an enema or another process.
So the fatal dose has been administered by an intravenous injection and so the conclusion is a murder.
