Gillian’s Found Photo #9

Another week, another ‘what the fuck?’ found photo courtesy of the Fang. This one is from February of 1970. What are we looking at? A cheap hotel room, a young, comatose girl in a mini-dress passed out on a double bed, her black cocktail dress on hanger next to her, and a man with a decidedly satanic vibe attempting to read her heart beat with what might be transistor radio ear phones. ┬áTheir wedding rings seem to match. He looks like a member of the Process Church Of The Final Judgement. The door is open.
For further background, I remember that Venus by the Shocking Blue was the #1 record for most of that month. With all this in mind can somebody tell me what they think is going on in this photo?
