Kurt Cobain's Death News Reports and Photos





1994:

Rock musician Kurt Cobain 'shoots himself'

The lead-singer of American grunge rock band Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, has been found dead in his Seattle home.

The 27-year-old rock star had a single gunshot wound to the head. A gun and suicide note were found nearby.

It appeared he had been dead for at least 34 hours when his body was discovered by an electrician who was carrying out repairs at the musician's house. Mr Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, said she had not heard from him for six days.

The troubled singer, whose band achieved global fame with the release of its album Nevermind in 1991, survived a drug and alcohol-induced coma in Rome last month.

"I told him not to join that stupid club"

-Wendy O'Connor

A statement from Nirvana's management company, Gold Mountain Entertainment, said: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented artist, close friend, loving husband and father."

Mr Cobain was married to the lead singer of the band Hole, Courtney Love. The couple had a daughter, Frances Bean, 18 months ago.

The three-piece group from Aberdeen in Washington State, were due to arrive in Britain next week on the next leg of their European tour.

Nirvana are widely acknowledged to be the leading pioneers of the Seattle-based grunge movement, combining a violent rock sound with lyrics expressing vulnerability and anguish.

Eight million copies of their hit Smells Like Teen Spirit have been sold worldwide. The band's latest album, In Utero, released last year, was also a great success.

But American music journalist Jeff Gilbert said Mr Cobain had been depressed by bass player Chris Novoselic's recent announcement that he wanted to leave the band.

Nirvana's frontman joins a long litany of rock stars - including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin - who have died young.

Ms O'Connor told reporters after her son went missing she had warned him about suffering a similar fate.

"I told him not to join that stupid club," she said. 

In 1996, Courtney Love made an announcement that she was tearing down the garage/greenhouse where Kurt killed himself.

In 1996,  Courtney Love  made an announcement that she was tearing down the garage/greenhouse where  Kurt killed himself . "I'm knocking down the  greenhouse where Kurt died  because it's become bigger than the Space Needle." She obviously meant it. 

Kurt Cobain's body is taken to a medical examiner's van after an electrician found him dead in the greenhouse of his Seattle home, April 8, 1994.  Kurt Cobain's body was found in a greenhouse above the garage of his home in the Madrona area of Seattle. The medical examiner would not disclose when he thought Cobain died. Police speculated it was within the past few days.

The coroner found that Kurt Cobain had died on 5 April

The star quickly became a rock icon and martyr to the disaffected.  Nevermind  was later described as one of the most influential albums ever made.

His widow  Courtney Love  sold the rights to her dead husband's journals eight years after his death and they were published in November 2002.

The volumes revealed the singer's battles with illness, depression and heroin addiction. He also described how he had bought the gun he used to commit suicide two years before his death.

A greatest hits album including the previously unreleased track,  You Know You're Right , was released in October 2002.

Ms Love was arrested for drug possession and disorderly conduct in October 2003.

The incident led to her losing custody of her 11-year-old daughter,  Frances Bean

Maybe it was just a matter of the news media afraid to say otherwise and everyone else following along because the news sources can't be wrong.

But we know better, don't we?

This quote from a Kurt fan says it all:

"Most people think he killed himself but we all know that deep down inside we all know who actually killed him. He is the God of music! We all still love him!"

-From a Kurt Cobain fan

outdoor memorial service for Kurt Cobain held in the Seattle Center's Flag Pavilion

On Sunday the 10th, at 5pm, there was an outdoor memorial service for Kurt Cobain held in the Seattle Center's Flag Pavilion. 5000 fans listened to a tape recording of Courtney Love reading the suicide note, and calling Kurt an asshole, but that she loved him. During that vigil, there was a real memorial service held a few blocks away, at the Unity Church of Truth. Love, Kurt's sister Kim, and other family members attended it. Dressed in black, Courtney Love read from the Bible, and a portion of the Kurt Cobain suicide note. Michael Stipe of REM also spoke.

We owe it to Kurt and to ourselves to discover what really happened on his last day on earth. And, over the next few weeks, I will be posting as much information as I can.

Kurt Cobain may have made the statement below, but even if he was considering a suicide, the evidence shows that someone beat him to it! But I don't think he had any suicidal intentions at this time, the facts show that he had too much to live for and was making plans for his new life after the divorce and getting custody of Frances Bean.

I'm personally fed up with all the talk in articles, and news sources and especially from fans (who should know better) about Kurt's suicide... how stupid can they be! In spite of the mountain of evidence to the contrary, most folks still think it was a suicide. People line up in San Francisco to see the documentary "Kurt & Courtney," March 1, 1998. Although Cobain's death was ruled a suicide, questions and conspiracy theories continued to swirl on the Internet. In the film, Love's estranged father, along with many of the couple's former friends, say they believe Love may have been involved. Love's lawyers called the accusations "false and defamatory." From a Dec 20, 2006 news posting:

"I am going to be a superstar musician, kill myself, and go out in a flame of glory." -Kurt Cobain, at age 14

"Love & Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain

In " Love & Death The Murder of Kurt Cobain ," two journalists say they smell a conspiracy, and claim they have evidence proving  Cobain was murdered .

Max Wallace and Ian Halperin, the book's co-authors, and  Tom Grant , who has been investigating  Cobain's death  for 10 years, visited The Early Show to share their findings.

Halperin tells co-anchor Hannah Storm the book reveals that it is scientifically  impossible for Cobain to have committed suicide .

He says, “We present a case showing he had at least three times a lethal dose of heroin in his system when he died. The suicide note, the last five lines did not match his handwriting.  He never mentions suicide in the so-called suicide note .”

The book also notes that there were  no fingerprints on the gun , and because Cobain had such a high dose of heroin, he couldn’t have wiped off the gun.

And this is not the only inconsistency in the story, says Wallace: “ Somebody had been using his credit card a few minutes before he died . The police never found the credit card. They never determined who was using it.”

There are also secret tapes about  Cobain’s and Courtney Love’s plans to divorce , Wallace claims: “The tapes reveal that Courtney’s own lawyer believed  Cobain was murdered  and urged  Tom Grant  to prove this is not a suicide.”

Love had hired Grant to find Cobain. A week before his death, Cobain had escaped from  a California drug rehab and detox facility . And Grant, immediately suspicious of Love, started recording their conversations.

Grant explains why: “The first phone call to me began with a lie. When we met with her at her hotel, she continued lying. She told us about stories she had just planted in the press. She seemed extremely manipulative and dominating. She didn’t seem so concerned about what was going on with him, although she said he was suicidal and everybody knows he’s going to kill himself. Yet she seemed more concerned about her career than anything else. So as we left the room, I told my partner, Ben Klugman that we’re going to document everything that goes on here. We have a missing person. Things aren’t adding up. We need to document carefully.”

One of the taped conversations involved Rosemary Carroll, the godmother of Cobain and Love’s child,  Frances Bean , and also the family attorney.

Carroll: “This is my theory and a lot of it is in Tuesday. That  suicide note , this is a pastiche of things he had written before, I think. And of someone copying his hand, tracing his handwriting. It’s sort of -- I think it was sort of cobbled together.

“I think Kurt wrote each of those words at different times and different places. I think someone went through his notebooks, found passages that could plausibly be cobbled together to a suicide note.”

There are some handwriting experts who dispute the fact that somebody else finished that suicide note and some who believe that indeed his handwriting was copied.

Halperin says, “A lot of the top handwriting experts say it’s inconclusive. In the book, we prove it’s scientifically  impossible he committed suicide .”

Wallace adds, “We have evidence based on the leaked autopsy report that we received saying, someone gave him an overly pure dose of heroin, waited until he was unconscious and made it staged to look like a suicide.”

There are some people who say because he used the drug so much, Cobain had a very high tolerance for heroin and that he could have killed himself.

But Wallace says there is not a single case in U.S. history documented where someone was able to survive more than a few seconds after ingesting this dose.

Halperin and Wallance say their motive is not to accuse anyone of murder, but to have the case re-examined because there have been copycat suicides.

Wallace says, “There have been at least 68 copycat suicides, teenagers killing themselves because they thought that’s what Kurt did. That makes this case tragic.”

He notes all that needs to be done is for Love to release the autopsy report to make everything clear.

Halperin says, “We’re not accusing her of anything. We want her to come forward and vindicate herself. Still, if she is vindicated, it does not mean that  Kurt Cobain  wasn’t murdered. And then she should get on the trail and help find the killers.”

The Early Show tried to contact Love, but she did not make any comments about the book.

Read an excerpt from the book:

Friday, April 15 In 1997, Seattle Police Department spokesman Sean O’Donnell told NBC’s Unsolved Mysteries of the monthlong investigation his department had conducted into the circumstances of Kurt’s death. His detectives, he said, originally began the investigation with the premise that  Kurt had been murdered  before officially ruling out the possibility: “That’s the way they conducted this investigation, so that there was a very thorough, comprehensive investigation done from the very beginning, and everything that the detectives encountered indicated to them that this was a suicide. We actually found nothing to indicate that this was anything but a suicide.”

But a long trail of evidence suggests investigators never seriously contemplated the idea that  Kurt was murdered  at all. Indeed, a Seattle Police Department source familiar with the investigation told us in 1996 that Sergeant Cameron made it clear at the time that the so-called homicide investigation was just a show: “We weren’t supposed to take it seriously.” The source, who said he didn’t necessarily believe Cobain was murdered, described a “shoddy investigation” in which Cameron didn’t even bother to develop the photographs taken at the scene. He said an outside law enforcement agency should reinvestigate the circumstances because “Cameron will never admit he made a mistake. He is very concerned about his reputation.”

The  police reports  we obtained under Washington State’s Freedom of Information laws appear to reinforce his charge that the homicide unit never took their investigation seriously. According to the initial incident report filed by homicide detectives, they had been summoned to the Lake Washington estate by a patrol officer at 9:50 a.m. on April 8, a little more than an hour after  Cobain’s body was found . The dispatcher informed detectives that uniformed officers “are on the scene of a suicide. There is a note present, and the gun is also in place.” In their official incident report, filed later the same day, the SPD homicide detectives wrote “Suicide” in the box on the form indicating “Type of incident.” This is a clear contradiction of the SPD spokesman’s assertion that the incident was investigated as a homicide from the very beginning. It proves that from the earliest hours of April 8, each unit of the Seattle Police Department had already officially labeled the death a suicide.

Certainly, Grant’s own attempts to share information with Cameron did not inspire confidence. Grant had already spent considerable time in the greenhouse, photographing the interior and exterior from every angle. One detail in particular stood out for him. The doors had a simple push-in-and-twist-type lock. On April 8, Cameron had informed him over the phone that Kurt was “locked inside the room,” suggesting that nobody could have been inside with him. This appeared to suggest that suicide was the only possible scenario. Now, face-to-face with Cameron for the first time, Grant asks the veteran homicide detective why he had told him the door was locked from the inside. (Ever since Grant had actually seen and photographed the lock, he realized that the detective’s statement was irrelevant.)

“Anyone could have pulled that door shut after locking it,” Grant says. Cameron has a ready explanation: “There was a stool wedged up against the door.” This is a detail that had already been reported on both MTV and the talk show Geraldo, as well as numerous newspaper articles about the case. Rolling Stone, for example, wrote, “Sometime on or before the afternoon of April 5,  Cobain  barricaded himself in the room above his garage by propping a stool against its French doors.” Anybody reading this would naturally assume that Kurt must have killed himself because nobody else possibly could have been in the greenhouse with him and then exited the room with a stool wedged against the door. Therefore, Kurt must have wedged the stool in front of the door himself before committing suicide.

Grant asks Sergeant Cameron if he can examine the photographs that police took at the scene. The detective refuses, offering yet more proof that he never took his murder investigation seriously. “We haven’t developed the photographs and probably never will. We don’t develop photographs on suicides,” says Cameron.

Grant shares some of the information he and Ben Klugman have gathered, including details on the use of Kurt’s credit card after he died. Again, Cameron brushes him off: “Nothing you’ve said convinces me this is anything but a suicide.”

At the time, Grant had no reason to doubt Cameron’s word that a stool had been wedged against the door. But when, months later, he obtained the incident report filed by the first detectives who arrived on the scene, the file suggested that Cameron was either lying or had badly bungled his investigation. The report read:

Cobain is found in the 19' x 23' greenhouse above the detached double garage. There are stairs on the westside leading to the French door entry and another set of French doors on the eastside leading to a balcony. These doors are unlocked and closed but there is a stool with a box of gardening supplies on it in front of the door.

The report clearly demonstrates that the stool wasn’t, in fact, wedged against the exit door at all. Rather, it was standing in front of the French doors on the other side of the room—doors that didn’t even serve as an exit. Although the actual exit door was indeed locked, it could have been locked and pulled shut by anyone leaving the scene. Why Cameron was repeating the demonstrably false story about the wedged stool is a question he refuses to answer to this day.

Whatever the reason, the police report proves beyond any doubt that Kurt never barricaded himself in the room, and it clearly demonstrates that another person could have easily been in the greenhouse at the time of Kurt’s death. Thus, one of the most convincing pieces of so-called evidence pointing to suicide is nothing more than a myth. It is a myth that has never been dispelled by a single biographer, nor by any of the media that originally reported on the barricaded door. It is a myth that many distraught teenagers would cling to in the months and years to come.
