Must an autopsy report list an etiological specific disease/injury?

Posted by curious53

My son, Joshua (19), was found dead in a public park, with the chain of a swingset wrapped 3/4 around his neck.

Per the Autopsy Report: "Tardieu spots on the anterior surfaces of the thighs, as well as on the posterior surface of the body."  "Sectioning of the lungs discloses a pink to dark-red purple parenchyma with pulmonary edema." "Suicide/Hanging."

Yet, the Medical Examiner I spoke with, purportedly, to be Dr. Reade Quinton/SWTMC, told me that there was no evidence of strangulation.
