Note found in Cobain's wallet scathing to Courtney Love

See also

A note written by the late Kurt Cobain found in his wallet may show his true feelings for Courtney Love at the time of his death reports Billboard. Written on stationary from the Phoenix, a hotel outside of San Francisco, Kurt Cobain wrote:

"Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife, even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring…"

A polar opposite from what the Nirvana frontman wrote in the presumed suicide note, which described Love as “goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy.”

Twenty years have passed, and in that amount of time, you cannot help but have conspiracy theories on such a high profile case as Cobain's suicide. The file, which had been stored by The Seattle Police Department, was reopened by Cold Case Detective, Mike Ciesynski. He knew this would not be an easy file to reopen due to this.

Ciesynski told in a statement:

"We knew with the 20th anniversary coming up and we knew there was going to be a lot of media interest, I've been a detective in homicide for 20 years and I've been in the cold case unit for 10 years. Most of the cases I work on, I look for something that wasn’t done [in the investigation] in the past."

Detective Ciesynski had previously studied various TV shows, articles, and documentaries about Cobain's death to explore all possibilities of what might have been missed during the initial investigation.

The original results of the King County Medical Examiner, Dr. Nicholas Hartshorne, were confirmed. Cobain's death was ruled as a suicide via self-inflicted gunshot wound, as well as administrating a lethal dose of heroin beforehand on Apr. 8, 1994. Hartshorne's examination of the body had been called into question due to his history of promoting Nirvana shows prior to Cobain's death.

Along with this note, 34 photographs from the crime scene have been released to the public in a gallery on the police department's own website.
