Kurt Cobain’s FBI File Is Released
Cobain took his own life (many don’t believe that) after taking a large dose of heroin in 1994. He started using heroin to relieve chronic stomach pain he had suffered throughout his life. Last month, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana were on the agenda again. It celebrated the anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death on the 5th of April. An NFT of Cobain’s last photograph taken has been released. As announced this week, Cobain’s six strands of hair cut in 1989 will be put up for sale at an auction. After all that, the FBI shared Long-Withheld File on Kurt Cobain. The Federal Bureau of Research regularly makes public archives of certain names. And last month, the FBI quietly pulled out his file on Cobain.
This file, which is only 10 pages, contains two letters calling on Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994 to investigate as murder rather than suicide. “Millions of fans around the world want to see the inconsistencies surrounding his death go away once and for all,” he wrote in the first letter of September 2003. This letter contains similar ideas to director Nick Broomfield’s Kurt & Courtney document. Again, from the censored and handwritten second letter by the author: “The police handling the case were never too serious in investigating the incident as murder, but insisted from the beginning that it was suicide. This disturbs me the most because the killer is still out. He allegedly shot himself. there were no fingerprints on the gun. ”
Replies of the FBI to the letters sent are also included in the file. These are usually “We understand your concern that Mr. Cobain might be the victim of a murder.” On the other hand, the file contains a reply similar to a letter sent to Attorney General Janet Reno at the time. However, in this case, the correspondence that triggered the response was not included. More interestingly, the shared file also includes parts of a fax sent to the FBI and several NBC executives by long-time host Los Angeles documentary company Cosgrove / Meurer Productions. These published pages contain a one-paragraph summary of the theories of Tom Grant, a Los Angeles private investigator and former deputy sheriff of Los Angeles, and his suspicions that the suicide ruling was a rush to judgment.
In this note, Grant allegedly found a number of inconsistencies, including questions about the alleged suicide note. Grant believes this is a letter sent to Cobain’s fans. “We are reaching the FBI for a variety of stories and trying to get information about them,” says Terry Meurer, co-founder of the CMP. You can find the Kurt Cobain file on the FBI’s website. Since Kurt Cobain’s suicide, many people have claimed that he actually did not commit suicide. Some elaborate conspiracy theories were put forward, and Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, was often seen as guilty. Some documentaries have even been made. And some apparently wrote letters to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, expressing their concerns.
