Photos from Kurt Cobain's Death Scene Released by Seattle Police
Published Mar 28, 2014Last week, Seattle police announced that they were developing some rolls of film taken at the scene of Nirvana icon Kurt Cobain's death when he was found on April 8, 1994. Now, those photos have emerged online.
The film was developed after a detective recently examined the case. This prompted rumours that the case had been reopened, but police quickly issued a statement clarifying that no new information had been found and that the death was still considered a suicide.
The photos don't show the body, but they're nevertheless quite bleak. They reveal that Cobain's suicide note had been stuck into a planter pot using a pen, while other pictures show the singer's heroin kit, his identification and belongings left on the floor, and a stool that was the sole piece of furniture in the greenhouse where the body was found.
See a few of the images below. If you're so inclined, 29 of the photos can be seen at CBS.
Don't be surprised if we hear more reports about Cobain in the next week or two, since the 20th anniversary of his death is coming up. He died on or around April 5.
