While Seattle police found no new information in their reexamination of Kurt Cobain's death, they have released previously unseen images from the scene of his suicide nearly 20 years ago.
One was an image showing a box containing a spoon and what appear to be needles on the floor next to a cigarette and sunglasses. The other showed the paraphernalia box closed, next to cash and a wallet that appears to show Cobain's identification.
After reviewing the case and the previously undeveloped photos, Detective Mike Ciesynski, the man in charge of reexamining Cobain's death, confirmed it was a suicide. "Sometimes people believe what they read—some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That's completely inaccurate," Ciesynski said. "It's a suicide. This is a closed case."
