What does tragedy mean? ?

An old classmate of mine brother passed away but nobody said what happened. He was 22 years old and had one child. Facebook status says tragedy and I'm just curious what tragedy means. 

Does that mean overdose or suicide?

    Probably a suicide or an accident

    For me, any unexpected death, especially in a young person, would be a tragedy.    Some might say any death, however it happens, is a tragedy, to somebody.

    However, depending on the 'how', some might be called 'died under tragic circumstances'   In other words the death was more of a tragedy than otherwise..

    Tragedy means it is so sad for someone to die so young; it has nothing to do with the cause.  You can't assume suicide. Some families like to keep a member's health situation private.

    when they don't say how a person died it is often suicide
