being from the medical community, there is no doubt in my mind that it was an assassination. The only thing that could prove the chloral hydrate and pentobarbital was injected would be in the other tissue samples, and so they "went missing" along with other critical pieces of evidence. This could only lead to the conclusion there was something to hide. Having said that the other samples would be the key, there was no obvious signs of oral ingestion, no smelling of pears, no vomitus, and the lack of residue in the stomach and duodenum is strange. There is no obvious anal route either, the staining of her rectum being due to a condition before the murder. However without the samples or the puncture mark nothing can be proven.
What does anyone else think about all of this conjecture?
