1. A person daily consumes alcohol and found everyday sleep outside the house , It doesn't mean that he cann't be murdered 2. If fir be done by the deceased relatives against his wife and his minor son aged 12 years ,local police has powers u/s 176 crpc to dig out the dead body of the deased person and after investigation send his body for postmortem , postmortem report clears all the points how the person died , by consuming alcohol or he is murdered . 3. If the deceased died naturally then no case will be charged and police file The fr in the court , if he is murdered then his wife will be prosecuted u/s 302 ipc.

If the Post mortem report negatived the views of police, ask the wife and the child to sigh a relief than going for any action against the police for harassment etc.
