The United States (293 F. 1013). A prominent physician in Washington, DC, was murdered. Reward money was offered for information in the case and an informant gave up Alphonso Frye as the perpetrator. The defense hired Marston to conduct a discontinuous blood pressure test on Frye, and Marston, quoting his 10-year accuracy rate as 95%, concluded that Frye was truthful when he denied murdering the doctor.

She was found sexually molested and beaten to death the next morning.
