With the recent 20-year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s April 8, 1994 death, interest in the late Nirvana frontman has hit fever pitch. Seattle police have recently stated that they won’t be reopening the case regarding the passing of the iconic singer, after years of speculation and numerous conspiracy theories concerning some unknown cause of Cobain’s death. The SPD insists that it was a gunshot wound to the head, and released dozens of never-before-seen pictures taken during the initial investigation.
Though, a new handwritten letter allegedly penned by Cobain was released by the SPD, which might shed some light on the true status of his relationship with wife Courtney Love around the time of his suicide. The undated note was found in Cobain’s wallet at the scene of his death, and was written on stationery from the Phoenix Hotel, which is located in San Francisco and known for catering to rock stars.
In contrast to Cobain’s widely-publicized 1994 suicide note in which he describes Love as being a “goddess… who sweats ambition and empathy,” the latest note calls the Hole singer a “lawfully shredded wife.” The memo goes on to read, “even when she’s a b**ch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and whoring…”

Courtney Love has yet to respond to the SPD’s latest anticipatory response to any intrigue surrounding the 20-year anniversary of Cobain’s death, though the new revelation will likely rile conspiracy theorists.
In a statement, SPD Cold Case Detective Mike Ciesynski commented, “We knew with the 20th anniversary coming up and we knew there was going to be a lot of media interest.” Referring to all of the conspiracy media produced regarding Cobain over two decades, Ciesynski adds, “They’re all very interesting. I can see why people have questions (about the case), but you can always point to something and say ‘what if.’”
Ciesynski found nothing suspect regarding Cobain’s case, though did comment on all of the speculation over the years- “Sometimes people believe what they read – some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That’s completely inaccurate. It’s a suicide. This is a closed case.”
