In anticipation for the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, Seattle police have been revealing never-before-seen photos of the Nirvana frontman's death scene. A total of 18 pictures have been released to-date, the most recent of which showcase parts of Cobain's actual body. In a strange twist, Seattle police are now being hit with a lawsuit by self-described investigative journalist Richard Lee.
During the past two weeks, new photos have been sporadically released of Kurt Cobain's death scene. None of the 16 total pictures released have featured shots of Cobain's body, until now. Another two photos have been unveiled, and just to warn you, although they are not graphic in nature, they may be seen as disturbing. They are posted below.
Within the past nine days, late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has been the subject of massive news reports. 20 years after Cobain's death, Seattle police chose to develop 35mm footage of the death scene and release some of those never-before-seen images to the public. After revealing nine new images yesterday (March 28), even more photos are now seeing the light of day.
Last week, news broke that Seattle police were reviewing the case of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's death. Part of the review included developing 35mm film that had been sitting in a police station vault for 20 years, and although it was reported that photos of Cobain dead would not be released, the Seattle police have reportedly published nine new pictures of Cobain's death scene.
An incredibly ambitious project has been undertaken by a Nirvana fan from Portland, Oregon. Journalist Jaime Dunkle recently discovered that late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's childhood home was on the market, and with this discovery, Dunkle began an effort to purchase the house and turn it into a museum.
Over the weekend, it was reported that former Nirvana drummer Chad Channing, who manned the kit for the band's debut album, 'Bleach,' would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl. However, according to a new message sent by the Rock Hall, Channing will not be included in Nirvana's induction.
Update: Chad Channing will not be entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the other members of Nirvana. Read about why there was confusion in our latest story on the matter.
While many recognize Nirvana as Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the band actually had other members along the way, and one of those members will join Nirvana when they're inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
