  • Yes and no. There have been records of people surviving death blows like a gun shot in the head. How they determine the cause of death is by vote of possible causes. Like the belief of people getting killed in a house fire. Most will say the fire killed them, well its suffocating on carbon monoxide not the fire.

    Maybe some questions are best left unaswered.

  • I am not certain whether they can determine the cause of death after 9 years. However, you can request it.

  • Autopsy... well yes and no, yes you can technically make an autopsy even if the corps is hundreds of years old, providing the body is well preserved, however unless conserved by something like a mummy, then a 9 years old corps is completely rotting and an autopsy is not really possible any longer.

  • You would need a court order, but yes they do them after burial. After all that time they may not find what they're looking for, however.
