My trash in iPhoto has no thumbnails in it, however, it says it has over 31k photos.  I had over 67K, but "put back" what thumbnails I could see in order to move them over in smaller groups to delete.  How can I delete what isn't there?

My trash in iPhoto has no thumbnails in it, however, it says I have over 31K photos in it.  I have already "put back" over 35K photos to Events.  How can I delete from iPhoto photos that are not in a thumbnail?  Also, I have been deleting these for over a year assuming that they were being deleted when I put them in the trash.  I didn't realize that there was an iPhoto trash along with my computer trash.  I can't put the other Events into the trash until I erase what's in there. Thank you for any help  you can give me.
