Q: As a 16-year-old, I want to get a CSI report on the death of my mother. How do I obtain this? Can I do it myself?

The death was deemed a suicide, in 2007. I have the CSI officer's name. My mother did not have any other children, however, my dad, her husband before she died is still alive and I live with him. The case is closed.

I don't think it's a CSI report you are looking for; perhaps an autopsy report? You are going to need an adult to help you get that.
