With the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s suicide coming up next week, Consequence of Sound reports that the Seattle Police Department released 35 photos from the late Nirvana’s singer’s death scene. Earlier this month the SPD re-opened the case of Cobain’s death, and “while the cold case officer found nothing new to suggest Cobain’s death was anything other than a suicide, he decided to release a pair of newly-developed photos from the scene, with the hope that it would end any and all conspiracy theories.”
As CBS News notes, via CoS:
For the first time, a number of the photos show exactly how Cobain left what police say was a suicide note. It was on top of a planter in the greenhouse with a pen stuck through the center of the note. Although a copy of the note has been previously released, these photos of its placement in the greenhouse have not been.
Other photos depict the scene where Cobain’s body was found: a sparse greenhouse room above a detached garage, with one stool as the lone piece of furniture. There are pictures of Cobain’s heroin kit authorities say was found at the scene, complete with syringes and other paraphernalia kept in a cigar box.
