Kurt Cobain suicide case should be reopened after ‘new evidence proves he was murdered’, author says
KURT Cobain died of a massive heroin overdose and could not have shot himself, according to an award-winning documentary maker who is calling for a new murder probe into the case.
New York Times bestselling author Ian Halperin says he has evidence the Nirvana frontman had 70 times the lethal dose of heroin in his system when he was found with a gunshot wound to the head at his home in Seattle in April 1994.
It means that it is “scientifically impossible” that Cobain, who died aged 27, could have turned the gun on himself, according to Halperin.
The 58-year-old writer says that another telltale sign that someone else was involved is that, allegedly, no prints were found on the shotgun.
Halperin claims to have spoken to Seattle law enforcement sources who believe the case was “steered away” from murder and wrongly dismissed as just another drug addict death.
And he also points to ex-Seattle police chief Norm Stamper’s previous admission that a new investigation should be launched.
