The FBI Makes Nirvana Frontman Kurt Cobain’s Case Files Available Online Hoping To Convince Fans
After years of unending controversies around Kurt Cobain’s death, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released some case files in relation to the rockstar’s death so as to finally settle the conspiracy theories about Kurt Cobain being murdered.
Kurt Cobain rose to fame as the frontman, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the legendary band Nirvana. It was widely known that Cobain was struggling with chronic health problems such as depression which led to substance abuse and his heroin addiction. In March 1994 he overdosed on a combination of champagne and Rohypnol and subsequently underwent a detox program.
However just one month later, on April 8, 1994, he was found dead at his home in Seattle and the police concluded that he had died after a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. Nonetheless, this wasn’t the end of it as millions of fans started speculating that he didn’t commit suicide but was killed and to this day, the Seattle Police Department receives a request to reopen the case at least once a week.
In 2014, the Seattle Police Department decided to release some never-before-seen photos from the crime scene which were taken by the responding police officers after the body was discovered. The police department developed the photos in 2014 as part of the process of re-examining his cause of death, but it was once again ruled a suicide.
Recently, the FBI released some case files considering Kurt Cobain’s passing and the requests that they received from his fans to work on the case. In the files, it can be seen that the FBI refused to intervene as there’s no violation of federal law. The now public files include some letters received by the FBI and the responses to those letters.
