Newly released Kurt Cobain death note casts doubt on suicide

There is new evidence in Kurt Cobain’s death following the release of a handwritten note found in his wallet but never made public until now, as well as death scene photos that weren’t developed in the 20 years since he died. Cobain was found dead at age 27 at his Seattle area home on April 8, 1994 of a heroin overdose and a shotgun blast to his head. Due to pressure from the public and Tom Grant, the private investigator hired at the time by Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, to find her husband, the Seattle Police Department reopened the case. Grant, among others, insists Cobain’s death was a murder, not a suicide.

A suicide note found at the scene called Courtney a “goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy” and said in all caps: “I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU.” The other note, found in Cobain’s wallet, seems to be written by someone else. It reads: “Do you, Kurt Cobain, take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all your money for doping and whoring …” Portions of both notes are pictured above – note the difference in the handwriting.

Detective Mike Ciesynski, who specializes in cold case files, wrote in a new report that his review of the newly developed 35 mm film indicated there was “a spent yellow shell casing lying on a coat at the right side of the photo.” However, he adds, “I was aware that for the casing to have landed to the victims (sic) left, the weapon would have had to been turned 180 degrees from what it was found.” As well, the police report states “the Remington 20 gauge shotgun was lying on victim’s chest with the receiver facing up,” but in that position the bullet would have fired in the direction of Cobain’s right arm rather than his left. An autopsy has never been released or examined by independent experts.

    What a bunch of crap perpetuated by people trying to make a buck.

    Kurt Cobain was a depressive drug addict with chronic, untreatable stomach pains – he killed himself folks, get over it!

    It’s about time the truth comes out!

    Shut up Sol, you dick.

    Courtney obviously wrote the suicide note. She also hired someone to kill Kurt for $50K, but strangely he was hit by a train after telling people about her offer.

    Um, the first note appears to be addressed TO Kurt, not from him, so someone else wrote it. Hence, the different handwriting.

    Convenient that all of this comes out right after the 20th anniversary.

    How do you kill yourself with a shotgun? Is that even possible?

  9. JD • May 1, 2014 @ 11:12 AM

    Shotguns don’t generally fire bullets…

    How has his death not been investigated? Idiot cops

    Cops usually are idiots. They should have to have inquisitive minds and not just accept everything that’s told to them. Most people who sign up to be cops are just on power trips. They don’t have any brains.

    my mind speaks and it says your are all a bunch of assholes point final.

  13. des • May 1, 2014 @ 6:56 PM

    It is crazy that a brilliant mind like his would do something totally stupid… A crime makes more logical sense really…

  14. Rita • May 2, 2014 @ 12:25 PM

    Yes one look at his picture, and I thought he was pretty Smart. Subconscieniously I was thinking once, that I Don’t think he was thinking, of taking his own Life!! Besides he had his Wife And Daughter to Live For!!!

  15. Rita • May 2, 2014 @ 12:35 PM

    @James its not that they don’t have any brains. The reason is: sometimes they do what their told for a pay cheque. Somethings are just Not bought, with a piece of paper. If they did what is right/reasonable, the World would Be a Nicer, more RespectFull and Better place to Live in for EveryOne!!!

    I am amazed that such a low talented artist is still being talked about. had a couple hits, then killed himself, I for one say good and it took him long enough.

    Let the talentless hack die already !!

    Hey Sol, you’re a sad f**king sheep (or complicit idiot or maybe even a sockpuppet, either way, a confusion & BS spreading waste of human life) if you really have actually read into the available evidence without any bias either way & if you have, good luck facing your higher self in the next life when you have to answer for your apathetic idiocy you ignorant, scared F’ing dolt.
