Thank you for posting your query.
Based on the data, it is very difficult to ascertain the cause of death. However, bleeding may occur from nose even after death (this is mainly because of nasal secretions mixed with blood coming out). Fresh bleeding does not occur after death.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
