What did it say?
CBS News reports that a handwritten note by Kurt Cobain was released by Seattle police which takes some shots at his then-wife Courtney Love. The note was found in his wallet at the scene of his death. This will probably make the conspiracy theorists out there happy, as there have been rumors for years that Cobain was murdered in a plan set up by Love.
It read: "Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife, even when she's a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring."
It's written on stationery from the Phoenix Hotel outside of San Francisco and is different from Cobain's suicide note, in which he said Love was a "goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy."
The Seattle Police department have also released 34 photographs from the crime scene, which you can see here. Last month, Seattle Police Department Cold Case Detective Mike Ciesynski reviewed the case and studied documentaries, articles and TV shows about it.
He said at the time: "We knew with the 20th anniversary coming up and we knew there was going to be a lot of media interest. I've been a detective in homicide for 20 years and I've been in the cold case unit for 10 years. Most of the cases I work on, I look for something that wasn't done [in the investigation] in the past."
The review confirmed the original ruling that it was a suicide and Cobain used a shotgun to shoot himself after taking what would have been an overdose of heroin. Ciesynski said in a statement that because of the high profile case, the file was put into storage.
He added: "There were so many conspiracy theories out there, it was good judgement on their behalf to hold to this."
