Drug Paraphernalia Found at Kurt Cobain's Death Scene in Newly-Released Photos
It’s been almost 20 years since Kurt Cobain committed suicide, and now Seattle police have officially released two previously unseen images from the tragic scene on Thursday evening (March 20).
While reviewing the case files of the Nirvana frontman’s death, detective Mike Ciesynski found four rolls of undeveloped film from inside his home the evening of the suicide.
One photo showed a box containing the drug paraphernalia, a spoon and what appears to be needles on the floor next to half a cigarette and sunglasses. The other showed the medication’s box closed with cash, a cigarette pack and Cobain’s wallet close by.
While dealing with the press about the new photos, the law enforcement’s spokeswoman Renee Witt stated, “There was nothing earth-shattering in any of these images. 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 on April 8, 1994. The investigation determined that he had taken massive amounts of heroin before shooting himself with a 20-gauge shotgun. Earlier that year, the then 27-year-old singer tried to kill himself by tranquilizer overdose.
Although his death was ruled a suicide, some of Kurt’s devoted fans refused to believe that, which led to conspiracy theories that he was murdered.
Detective Ciesynski noted, “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 close.”
