When do they close the case on a suicide?

After a crime scene investigation takes place and the medical examiners as well as the detectives find no physical evidence of a homicide, when do detectives close the case? In my novel, I have a woman who clearly shot herself; all physical evidence points to this. However, my detective personally suspects the bf. Being that it is a detective's job to bring cases to trial, would there be a trial? Would they keep looking? When do they "close" the case? What kind of a curve do you mean? How do I make the suicide not real obvious when she really did shoot herself in the head?

death by misadventure would still be case closed. undetermined would keep it open. suicide is open and shut. even when relatives say it is wrong.

depends on the race...

As soon as the ME declares it a suicide it is closed out. Most experienced homicide investigators, and even police officers, can figure it out pretty fast if it is a homicide or suicide. You need to throw in a curve so the suicide is not "real obvious".
