The photos did not change the case...
The Seattle Times reports that police have released new photos from the death scene of Kurt Cobain. You can check out one of the photos at the above link.
A recent re-investigation into Cobain's suicide almost 20 years ago discovered some undeveloped photos that were taken at the scene. However, the no new evidence changed the original findings. A cold-case detective took another look at the case in anticipation of the 20th anniversary of Cobain's death on April 5. Despite some early rumors to the contrary, the case is not being reopened.
Four rolls of previously undeveloped film were found. They contained photographs taken at the scene of Cobain's suicide. One of the two images shows a cigar box with a spoon, needles, and a lighter laying on the floor next to a cigarette butt and a pair of dark sunglasses. The second photo shows the box closed next to cash, a woolly hat, and an open wallet that has Cobain's ID. According to a Seattle PD spokeswoman, the new photos were described as "underwhelming."
Cobain (aged 27) was found dead of a shotgun wound in his home on Lake Washington Blvd. on April 8, 1994. His body was found by an electrician who was there to do some work on the house. Police determined that Cobain committed suicide three days earlier on April 5. For years, there have been conspiracy theories that suggest that Cobain was murdered.
