The FBI Publishes Kurt Cobain Suicide Investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has published a 10-page article on Nirvana guitarist and song writer Kurt Cobain‘s suicide in 1994 to “The Vault,” the FBI’s Freedom of Information Act library.

Letters requesting that the FBI restart its inquiry into Cobain’s demise, citing tv documentaries and other speculative media, are included in the file though the identities of the letter writers were removed, including one that stated, “There has since been evidence found that he was killed and didn’t commit suicide, as originally thought.” “Millions of fans around the world would like to see the inconsistencies surrounding the death resolved once and for all,” wrote another. It’s disturbing to say that such an injustice could be tolerated in the United States.”

According to a popular media outlet, the FBI keeps some of its archives public on a regular basis. The file on Kurt Cobain was published last month without any media warning other than a website posting and according to another source, the FBI file included development reports from the organization that produced Unsolved Mysteries, which included a section about Kurt Cobain’s death in 1997.

Cobain’s suicide, according to the FBI’s answers to questions in the records, was not under the bureau’s authority.  One file response says, “We appreciate your concern that Mr. Cobain may have been the victim of a homicide.” “However, the majority of homicide/death investigations fall under the purview of state and local authorities. … We are unable to find any breach of federal law under the FBI’s investigative authority based on the details you provided.”
