Courtney Love is known for being a wild party girl, among other things. Recently, there have been suspicions that Courtney Love may have been responsible for Kurt Cobain’s death. Love’s own father even suspects that she did it. He admits while she may not have held the gun to his head she was somehow involved. It has always seemed odd to many of his fans how camera film from the crime scene 20 years before was never developed, until recently. Love’s father Hank Harrison has written a book titled Love Kills: The Assassination of Kurt Cobain. Harrison claims this book will prove that she was involved. Many individuals believe he is just trying to gain fame by using his daughter’s tragic past.
The case was re-opened and once the film was reviewed the police in Seattle still believe it was suicide. They have no plans to re-open this case in the near future. Courtney Love did not respond to Radar.com’s request for a comment. Detective Mike Ciesynski who worked in the cold case department for 10 years, claims the note was kept from the public due to all of the conspiracy theories occurring at the time. He again insists that it will remain as a suicide. The police will no longer be looking into this matter even though it only started a whole new generation of conspiracy theories again.
A note that was recently found in Kurt Cobain’s wallet at the time of his death was written by Courtney Love, and proves she was never responsible for his death. According to Seattle author Charles R. Cross, who has written many biographies on Cobain says, it was a sarcastic note. It was never meant to be taken seriously. They used to write notes back and forth to each other all the time. It was just one of the many ways they communicated. This note was actually written right before their wedding. The fact that he still carried it around may have meant he was still in love with Courtney Love. After his first suicide attempt in 1994 his band held an intervention. Cobain agreed to go to rehab, but only two days later Cobain would run away from the rehab facility. He was later found dead in his Seattle home. Courtney Love does not speak much of Kurt Cobain’s death.
Who could blame her when so many point their finger insisting she was responsible for his death. Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain had a very turbulent relationship.The Seattle police were called to the home at one point where guns were found on the premises; Cobain was arrested for assault. This on and off relationship would continue until is death in 1994.
It is clear why many feel Courtney Love was responsible for Kurt Cobain’s death. Cobain was only 27 when he took his own life by not only a legal injection of heroin, but also with a 20 gauge shotgun. He was the front man for Nirvana and had sold millions. He also was responsible for the grunge scene that erupted in the early 1990s. He left a lengthy suicide note labeled to his fans, daughter, and his wife. He was insistent in his suicide note that his daughter would be better off without him.
