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.

The 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death (April 5, 2014) is fast approaching, and according to Detective Mike Ciesynski, Cobain's case review was in anticipation of the milestone. "I was requested to look at the case because I’m a cold case detective because it is 20 years later and it’s a high media case,” Detective Ciesynski told KIRO 7. “And there were always these conspiracy theorists out there and so I was asked to look at the case and review it.”

20 years after Cobain's death, 35mm film of the death scene, which was originally deemed unnecessary to develop, has been made public. The new photos were not supposed to see the light of day, but Seattle police have released nine new images.
