Even though officially declared a “suicide”, many dispute the fact that Kurt Cobain, legendary leader of grunge band Nirvana committed suicide and believe that he was murdered. There aren’t many death photos of Kurt Cobain around – some websites claim to have them, but don’t. Then there are also websites that offer photos of unknown victims with severe head trauma and bloody shotgun wound trying to pass it as Kurt Cobain’s death photos. These are not photos of Nirvana leader either. Images posted here are the only real photos of Kurt Cobain’s death that made it on the internet. Kurt Cobain autopsy photos have not been leaked.
Any suicide photo of Kurt Cobain with face blasted off is fake. He was killed by a single gunshot to the face but much of his face remained untouched leaving him easily recognizable and identifiable. Back of his head was distorted as the bullet collided with his skull. The shotgun that ended Kurt Cobain life was a present from his best friend and “Earth” singer/guitarist Dylan Carlson.
Kurt Cobain’s Death
The dead body of Kurt Cobain was discovered on April 8, 1994 in the Greenhouse – a room above the garage by Gary Smith, an electrician who came to install security lights at the house in Lake Washington. Gary Smith at first thought that Kurt was resting on the floor, but there was a little bit of blood oozing out of his ear, he was on his back with a shotgun resting on his chest and there was a suicide note hidden underneath the flower pot. The official report estimates that Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994, which would mean that he had been dead for 3 days before he was found. The “Automatic for the People” album by R.E.M. was found in the CD player indicating that this was the last music Kurt Cobain listened to before his passing.
Kurt Cobain Death Controversy
The death of Kurt Cobain has been officially ruled a suicide, however there are some who don’t believe Nirvana singer would take his own life and suspect Courtney Love, his wife as the killer. Did Courtney Love really kill Kurt Cobain? Let’s take a look at what some proponents of “Kurt Cobain Death Conspiracy” say:
The very first person disputing suicide was Seattle journalist Richard Lee who obtained a video tape filmed on April 8, 1994. The tape was recorded from a tree when the police was already at the crime scene. Kurt Cobain’s dead body is partially seen in one of the shots – his hair is on the ground, but there is no blood. You can see that image in the gallery below. It has a little hue to it because it’s a screenshot from a video camera.
The most prominent supporter of theory that Kurt Cobain’s death wasn’t a suicide, but a homicide is Tom Grant. Tom Grant is a private investigator who was originally hired by Courtney Love to investigate the disappearance of Kurt Cobain from rehab. Tom Grant first started to doubt official ruling of Kurt Cobain’s death after he saw the toxicology report. According to this report, Kurt Cobain had 1.52 milligrams or heroin per liter of blood in his body at time of death. Tom Grant warrants that such toxic level of heroin would render anyone incapable of pulling trigger. He believes that Kurt Cobain was purposefully intoxicated to render him helpless so that perpetrators could camouflage the killing, making it look like suicide.
Tom Grant also analyzed the suicide note that was found by Kurt Cobain’s dead body and thinks it’s not a suicide note, but rather a letter announcing his wish to leave his wife Courtney Love and music industry all together. Shotgun which rested on Kurt’s body was turned the opposite way from where the empty shotgun shell was discharged and had no fingerprint evidence.
Tom Grant has several discrepancies regarding Kurt Cobain’s death described on his website Cobain Case. There are several other websites calling for re-opening of investigation regarding Kurt Cobain’s death. The official dearth ruling remains in effect – Kurt Cobain died by a self-inflicting gun shot wound to the head.
