I'm afraid they are unlikely to be able to provide an answer.

In any sudden death case such as a suicide, the Police will refer the death to the Coroner. The Coroner will have to hold an inquest to decide the cause of death. Sometimes the inquest is "on the papers" and is done without a hearing but any finding will be weeks if not months away.
