Here come the "black helicopter" guys again.
For what it is worth, a journalist should know that medical examiner autopsy
reports are generally A Matter Of Public Record, and the full text of the report
is usually available for no more than the cost of a telephone call. The
exception is that autopsies in cases that are under criminal investigation are
generally NOT released as long as the criminal investigation remains open.
For suicide by gunshot, there are some very obvious things that a medical
examiner will check, and that will be in the report. The most obvious one is
powder residue around the entrance wound. The next is powder residue on the
hand that allegedly held the gun.
So, if the journalist in question is actually curious, his next step is a formal
request for a copy of the autopsy report.
