Kurt Cobain Death Investigation

SEATTTLE - Nearly two decades after his death, there are new photos of the scene of Kurt Cobain's suicide at his Seattle home on April 8th 1994.

Police only released two image, both showing drug paraphernalia found in the rock star's home including a heroin kit.

Detective Mike Ciesynski, of the Seattle Police Department, said, "I was able to look at the kit. Look at where the suicide note was placed"

Seattle Police Detective Mike Ciesynski has been reviewing Cobain's death because the department knew the case would get a lot of attention this year, the 20th anniversary.

That's when he came across four rolls of undeveloped film in the files.
But Seattle police say the images don't change the outcome of the original investigation.

They maintain the musician best known as the lead singer of the band Nirvana took a fatal dose of heroin then shot himself.

Det. Ciesynski, Seattle Police Department, said, "he killed himself because of the shotgun blast but the heroin would have did the trick also."

The circumstances surrounding Kurt Cobain's death have become a topic of public fascination leading to conspiracy theories that the 27 year old rock icon had been killed.

But Seattle Police say: case closed.

It is not clear why the newly discovered rolls of film from the suicide scene remained undeveloped for 20 years.
Police speculate the original investigators may have regarded them as redundant and unnecessary to develop.
