I’m sorry…” then a second later he hears the gun go off. Why did the detective file the case as a murder instead of a suicide?

The tape started at the beginning and the gun shot was at the end. how could the man rewind the tape if he was already dead? Plus, the murderer could've used the the handkerchief to hold the gun and then puts the man's hand on the gun when he was dead so only his fingerprints were left behind.
