Kurt Cobain was at the apex of his stardom when he was found dead on April 8, 1994. He was believed to have been dead for three days before he was found. When Cobain was found, a shotgun was laid across his body and a suicide note near where he was lying. He died after an apparent suicide.
When he was found dead in his home two decades ago everybody definitely agreed that it was suicide. However, a documentary that is said to shed more light on the case will be released next week. With new clues uncovered about Cobain’s last moments, the people behind the new film aim to expose the real events that led to the grunge icon’s death. The movie even sensationally claims that he did not commit suicide but was rather murdered by no less than his own widow, Courtney Love.
The film ‘Soaked in Bleach,’ includes a lot of experts breaking down and analyzing Cobain’s infamous suicide note which they claim is not a suicide note at all but rather a letter stating his plan to leave everything — his wife, family and particularly his career.
The basis of all their claims is hinge on the discovery of several ‘handwriting practice sheets’ which allegedly is a repeated scrawling of sample letters that appeared on the last four controversial lines in the suicide note. Since the practice sheets are found in Love’s bag, they deemed them as concrete evidence that she forged part of his husband’s suicide note.
Almost everyone who was involved in the investigation of the apparent suicide were interviewed and appear on the film. Some of Cobain’s friends and family members were also interviewed and shared their insights about Kurt Cobain as well as their last interactions with him. No less than the former Seattle police chief Norm Stamper, who was the chief during the Cobain incident, appears in the movie. He declares that the investigation into Kurt’s death should be re-opened.
