Is LiveJournal deleting suspending journals that haven't been updated in 3+ years, or did someone present a death certificate for tearysky? I suppose it's time for me to let go of his domain name (aerlinn.com) too, then? It was still registered using his email on my domain so I was able to grab it. Theoretically I could also access his LJ account, but couldn't decide what the point of doing so would be (grab all entries into a downloaded PDF? Delete it? Kind of late to be posting a "I'm dead" message) so I left it alone.

Normally yes. Is not posting in 3+ years breaking a rule or terms of service clause, though? It seems unlikely that something posted 4+ years ago would be discovered within the last few days and be reported on an old account, unless someone was trying to take the name (?? ... Seems unlikely as well).

It's possible that a family member contacted Abuse with a death certificate. I think that would do it.

There's no rule about posting frequency, and names of suspended journals don't get put back for anyone to get.

I checked a couple of older journals that I know of (like this one, belonging to an acquaintance who died six years ago), and they haven't been touched by LJ. I'm pretty certain that the only time LJ takes action against a journal is in response to some egregious misbehavior, or if the journal owner requests deletion.
