Photographs show Cobain suicide scene

SEATTLE

Police say recently developed photos show part of a suicide note and the greenhouse room above a garage where grunge-rock icon Kurt Cobain killed himself 20 years ago.

The four rolls of crime- scene photos were developed by a cold-case detective in anticipation of the anniversary of the April 8, 1994, suicide.

Police made two of the photos public March 20 when they announced the development. Those images show a box of drug paraphernalia and items such as glasses, a wallet and pack of cigarettes.

All 35 photos were released this week to CBS through a public-disclosure request. The Associated Press also is seeking the images.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt says nothing from the additional photos has changed the conclusion that Cobain killed himself with a shotgun. The case remains closed.
