Kurt Cobain Death Photos Description & Court Ruling Revealed


The Blast is reporting that Kurt Cobain‘s suicide photos will remain sealed after an appellate court in Washington on Monday upheld a judgment from 2015 keeping them from being released to the public.

The appellate court’s ruling comes in favor of Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain, who had been seeking a ruling “permanently enjoining the City from disclosing, disseminating, releasing, or distributing any death-scene photographs not previously disclosed.”

Back in 2014, Richard Lee sued the city of Seattle to try and get the photos released. The photos in question, according to court documents, show “Kurt Cobain’s body as it lay in the family residence after he was shot in the head.”

Lee has spent 23 years investigating Cobain’s death and believes the rock legend was actually killed in a conspiracy involving multiple government officials. He lost his original suit in 2015, but filed an appeal last year.

Love and Cobain have testified in this case previously with Love saying Cobain’s death “was the most traumatic experience of my life. It left me physically distraught and I continue to suffer emotionally from the loss of my husband to this day.”

Frances Bean testified that the while she has no memory of her father, she “has had to deal with the trauma of his death her entire life.”

On April 21, 2016, Love filed a declaration accusing Lee of trying to exploit Cobain’s death and claiming Lee has “stalked and harassed me, my family, and my friends for many, many years … On one particular occasion, Mr. Lee even filmed himself chasing a limousine for several miles that he thought I was a passenger in. Mr. Lee’s actions make me fear for my safety.”

      Olga I wanted to comment on the head gash article. In the photos from that last night of his life the bald spot on his head looks red and raw. I have always thought there was more to this. It does not look like your run-of-the-mill bald spot to me.

        If you go to the article about Peter, his Mom, and Susan going to the award concert for Mike, there is a photo there that you might want to take a look at.

        As for the gash?

        That happened years ago and his hair never grew back in that spot.

        The only head injury I know that Chris had was at Lollapalooza 1996. I read he was drunk, stripped down to his boxers, and dove into a pool (possibly the shallow end) and hit his head. Maybe he usually covered it up? It’s also possible that he may have injured it sometime after that. I wish we had more answers..

          Interesting. Maybe it is from that. It is also interesting the paramedics stated a head injury at the scene of the suicide. This could have been from the body falling once the door was opened. I find it strange they would mention an old injury. We just don’t have enough info like you stated.

            Yeah I think it’s likely that it was from his body falling. Basically the same situation as the broken ribs from CPR or whatever. His head did look raw like you said but maybe the footage of the last show made it appear that way, or he agitated it or something. I think it’s likely that Vicky is using the head injury and steroid to add to her constantly changing narrative.

    Good they should remained sealed, Lee has way too much time on his hands. The Seattle PD already released photos of his arm, legs, etc. It’s disrespectful to Kurt’s family and friends.

    It’s to bad Frances has been brain washed there is so much evidence to support that he was murdered but the Seattle PD is so corrupt that Justice will never be served
