In the autopsy that my MOM had to pay for out of her pocket…she had to have Keith exhumed and then fly his body to PA to be autopsied by Dr. Milhalakis.
Dr Milhalakis revealed that there were substances found in the toxicological studies “that bothers me.” The two substances reported in the blood analysis were 1,1,1-Trichloroethane and Ethylbenzene. Four substances were found in the liver anaylsis–1,1,1-Trichloroethane, Ethylbenzene, plus Xylene and Toluene. It was suggested that Trichloroethane is in degreasers, dry cleaning agents, glue and paint removers, etc. In the past it was also part of an inhalation anesthetic. The others are often found together in gasoline. The question was –Where did these substances come from? Embalming fluids? Dr. Mihalakis indicated that would be uncommon, very unusual. Conference called ended with further research indicated.
In a Conference Call Aug.3rd. Dr. Mihalakis, (who connected in Dr. Mason the toxicologist) with George and Jane.
Toxicology findings were: I) Trichloroethane in the blood and liver were 12 and 16 times the “fatal Level.” 2) Toluene was approximately 10 times a “fatal Level.” 3) Xylene was 10 times a “fatal level.” The question posited was could these substance be in the embalming fluid? .
Dr. Mason-“ATYPICAL.” (Pushed then by Dr. Mihalakis “How atypical?”) Dr. Mason -“HIGHLY ATYPICAL.” “I HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED THESE.” · “Trichloroethane has impairing qualities, it is a cardiac irritant.
The question raised-WERE THESE SUBSTANCE IN THE BODY BEFORE KEITH WAS STRUNG UP IN THE TREE OR WHETHER FOR SOME REASON THEY WERE PLACED IN THE BODY DURING THE EMBALMING PROC.E,. SS. IF ANTE MORTEM (pre-death) then, how did they get into Keith’s body?
