Police Release New Photos From Kurt Cobain’s Suicide

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police have released previously unseen images (see below) showing drug paraphernalia from the scene of Kurt Cobain’s suicide 20 years ago.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt said Thursday that several rolls of undeveloped film were found when a detective re-examined the Cobain case recently.

Seattle police released two images to the media late Thursday. 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.

Cobain’s, whose body was discovered in Seattle on April 8, 1994, is not seen in the images. An investigation determined he had shot himself.
