The fabled case of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has been floating about the media for the past two decades. Cobain’s body was found in Seattle on April 8, 1994. An investigation determined that days earlier, Cobain had gone into the greenhouse of his large home and taken a massive dose of heroin. He then shot himself with a 20-gauge shotgun and Cobain’s death was ultimately ruled a suicide.
Recently, the 90’s grunge rocker’s name is back in the news yet again, as the Seattle Police Station revealed new photos of the shotgun found at the 1994 crime scene.
Seattle police cold case Detective Mike Ciesynski is shown holding Cobain’s gun at different angles in five photos posted to the police department’s website Wednesday.
This is the first time the Nirvana frontman’s gun, recently photographed and released by cold case homicide Det. Michael Ciesynski (pictured below), has been shown to the public.
Although the case was re-opened briefly in 2014 to develop extra film in the file, the Seattle Police Department still conclude the grunge star’s death a suicide.
Conspiracy or not, this allows us all to jump back to the 90’s and grunge rock high just for a little while… especially now that various documentaries on the Cobain case (Soaked in Bleach and Kurt and Courtney) are featured on Netflix streaming. 😉
