I would like to add a little to RA's excellent posts with some paraphrasing from the 2011 book: "Marilyn Monroe" A Case for Murder" by Jay Margolis
published in 2011. Also some of Dr. Noguchi autopsy findings are presented.
Note that what I am paraphrasing from the book is available as a free preview of the contents of the book.
As you mentioned Dr. Noguchi noted: "A slight ecchymotic area is noted in the left hip and left side of lower back." Ecchymosis means a discoloration
of the skin caused by bruising. So had someone held her down, especially her lower body?
Dr. Noguchi also noted: "The colon shows marked congestion and purplish discoloration.".
So what caused this purplish discoloration in her colon? John
, a former L.A. County prosecutor involved with the Monroe case claims a drug-laced enema was administered to Monroe.
"The toxic level was so high she would have had to take 60 to 70 pills,"
He claims this is the only way such a massive dosage of drugs could have been administered, especially since the autopsy report claimed "The stomach
is almost completely empty...No residue of the pills is noted."
John Miner told others that administering a drug-laced enema was an "almost perfect crime" and "an easy one to cover up." He also implicates Monroe's
housekeeper Mrs. Murray, who apparently was, in the middle of the night "washing loads after load of linens". This washed linen, which was really
crime scene evidence, was put into garbage bags then loaded to a waiting pickup truck and disposed of immediately at the county dump.
This may explain the "how" it happened. We know the why as you have demonstrated.

Noguchi Autopsy Report: this is quite morbid, search the internet if you really want to read it
Like many teenage boys, I had a crush on Marilyn, and I don't think she was a suicide, troubled yes.
Elton John wrote a song about Norma Jeane, which expresses my feelings for her better than I ever could:
