Kurt Cobain’s death reexamined by Seattle police

Seattle police have reexamining the cause of Kurt Cobain’s death.

According to the Seattle Times, a cold case detective recently took a look at the case, but found nothing new.

The Nirvana lead singer was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Seattle, Wash. home on April 8, 1994.

Last month, Seattle police developed four rolls of film taken at the crime scene two decades ago that apparently depict a much clearer view of the scene than Polaroids police used in the original investigation.

The coroner at the time declared Cobain’s death a suicide and that he had injected himself with heroin before shooting himself. Cobain was dead for three days before anyone found him.

He left a long, handwritten note at the scene to his wife Courtney Love and daughter Frances Bean. But conspiracy theorists have long maintained that Cobain did not kill himself and that he was actually murdered.

Tom Grant, a private investigator hired by Love, has claimed that the note beside Cobain’s body was actually a note saying that he was leaving Love and the music business and not a suicide note.

Grant also claims that the heroin in his body was injected by someone else to incapacitate him before the murder and that several different fingerprints were found on the shotgun.

Several friends of Cobain and even his grandfather have all said that they believe he was murdered.

According to KIRO 7, the Seattle police get at least one request per week to reopen the investigation into Cobain’s death.
