The coroner or the State/Count Medical Examiner would make the initial determination. This is done at the local level.

COD may also be declared as undetermined, in which case the local authorities may or may not bring in outside help in order to assist in this determination.

I dont think you could have punished someone who had committed suicide by death, as they were already dead.
