Unseen Kurt Cobain Suicide Scene Images Found
Previously unseen pictures showing items at the scene of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s suicide have been released. The images were discovered on several rolls of undeveloped film.
The discovery was made by a police officer who decided to review the case files in anticipation of increased interest ahead of the 20th anniversary of the singer's death. One shows a box containing a spoon and what appear to be needles on the floor next to half a cigarette and a pair of sunglasses.
The other shows the box closed, next to money, a cigarette packet and a wallet that appears to show Cobain's identification. Cobain was found dead in Seattle, Washington, on April 8, 1994. The 27-year-old had taken a massive dose of heroin and shot himself with a 20-gauge shotgun.
Some refused to believe the official verdict of suicide, and conspiracy theories that he had been killed sprung up. Seattle Police Department Cold Case Detective Mike Ciesynski, who looked at the files, said the death was definitely a suicide.
"Sometimes people believe what they read - some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That's completely inaccurate. It's a suicide. This is a closed case."
