Unexpected death and must be investigated for the coroner.

Usually it’s just a precautionary measure to prevent people from disturbing anything at the scene. Investigators need to ascertain whether it was pilot error that led to accidental death, or equipment sabotage leading to homicide, and the results will probably be included in the Coroner’s report.
