According to a March 20, report by the Daily Mail, new photos of the "suicide" scene were released by Seattle, police.
Reportedly, "Detectives are re-examining evidence in the Nirvana singer's case in light of the new evidence and the approaching 20th anniversary of his death.
Authorities ruled Cobain's death a suicide and said he had taken a lethal dose of heroin prior to shooting himself."
However, as a matter of public record, as cited in the toxicology report related to the blood concentration level of heroin in Cobain's blood analysis, is inconsistent with the singer's continuity and coherency to shoot himself.
According to the report, Police found four undeveloped rolls of film taken in Cobain's home at the time of his death.
Seattle police did not officially state that the case is re-opened, and were reluctant to prematurely suggest that the pictures would change anything.
However, in labeling the photos as "new evidence," and further investigating the photos, subjectively implies that the photos may provide further insight not before ascertained in the initial discovery.
