    Well if the cops say no foul play, he has a gun shot wound and the cops found a gun or after he shot himself, he went got rid of the gun, came back, lie down and died.

    An unnatural death means that he didn’t die by natural causes i.e old age sickness etc.. A drowning is an unnatural death a car accident so a self inflicted wound is unnatural as well.
