Kurt Cobain Suicide Photos Released, Depict Drug Paraphernalia and Cash

by at . Comments

Nearly two decades after Kurt Cobain committed suicide, new photos from the scene of the rocker's death have been released.

A Seattle detective recently reviewed the case, assuming the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s passing would renew interest in the incident, which took place on April 8, 1994.

He did not discover any new information but he did some across four rolls of undeveloped rolls of film from the suicide scene.

Authorities released two of those photos to The Associated Press last night, with one depicting a box of drug paraphernalia, a spoon and what appear to be needles on the floor next to half a cigarette and sunglasses.

The other shows the same paraphernalia box closed aside some cash, a cigarette pack and a wallet that shows Cobain's identification.

"There was nothing earth-shattering in any of these images," police spokeswoman Renee Witt said. "The detective went into the case files to refresh himself. The outcome of the case has not changed."

Cobain's body was discovered in Seattle and an investigation determined that, days prior, the Nirvana frontman had gone into the greenhouse of his large home and taken a massive dose of heroin.

He then shot himself with a shotgun.

In a statement on the Seattle Police Department's online blotter, the detective who re-examined the case dismissed speculation of any kind of conspiracy.

"Sometimes people believe what they read – some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That's completely inaccurate," said Detective Mike Ciesynski. "It's a suicide. This is a closed case."
