I am writing a book in which a body is discovered and an autopsy is performed on it. The body has been murdered as follows: A mask was applied and gas administered. The gas was an non-reactive gas such as nitrogen or argon. Would there be any signs that would be picked up at the autopsy. If so, would these signs be obvious? How easy/difficult would they be to spot?
