FBI File On Kurt Cobain Includes Theories About His Death


The Federal Bureau of Investigation has made public their long-withheld file on the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

Following Cobain’s death by suicide on April 5, 1994, the bureau received several letters that claimed that the case was that of homicide and not suicide.

“Millions of fans around the world would like to see the inconsistencies surrounding his death cleared up once and for all,” reads one typed-out letter sent in September 2003.

Another hand-written letter accused the police who took up the case of shoddy work and claimed they insisted “on it being a suicide” from the very beginning.

“This bothers me the most because his killer is still out there,” the anonymous writer continued, adding that “there were no prints on the gun he supposedly shot himself with.”

The 10-page file also contains the near-identical responses that these letters eventually received from the bureau, who argued that although they appreciated the concern, “most homicide investigations generally fall within the jurisdiction of state or local authorities.”
