THE EVENTS SURROUNDING THE DEATH OF KURT COBAIN ARE FILLED WITH LIES,
CONTRADICTIONS IN LOGIC, AND COUNTLESS INCONSISTENCIES.
Kurt had 3 times the lethal dose of heroin (225 mgs) in his blood
system. Medical experts say such an amount will leave you
incapacitated and cause you to lapse into a coma within seconds,
if not kill you instantly. Kurt could not have done this,
neatly put away all his belongings, roll down his sleeves
and been able to pick up a shotgun to shoot himself.
According to the police reports, there were NO fingerprints on
the shotgun, on the pen found with the "suicide" note, or the box
of shotgun shells found beside Kurt. This indicates the crime
scene was "swept" clean before the body was discovered.
There is evidence that circumstances were manipulated to
prevent Kurt from using his own car and gaining access to his
own money in the days leading up to his death. Someone also
attempted to use his credit card up until the morning of April
8th. Medical examiners determined Cobain had died on April 5th.
Courtney Love was facing a divorce. There is documented proof,
including her own voice on recordings, that indicates Kurt wanted
out of the marriage, out of the music industry, and possibly
full custody of their daughter Frances. Dave Grohl
confirmed that Nirvana were about to break up at the time.
Courtney's father claims Kurt was going to divorce her on adultery
charges. Cobain also took steps to write her out of his will.
Eldon Hoke, singer of a band called the Mentors, claimed he
was offered $50,000 by Courtney to kill Kurt in December 1993.
On March 6, 1996, Hoke was administered a polygraph test by Dr.
Edward Gelb, who is one of the country's leading polygraph
experts and teaches the advanced polygraph course for the FBI.
Hoke passed a lie detector test with 99.7% certainty that he
was telling the truth.
Kurt said he wasn't suicidal to many people in the weeks prior to his death, including the
Seattle police, a doctor that treated him in Rome, the people at the Exodus rehab center
in LA, his lawyer, and many friends, including his best friend Dylan Carlson who bought
him the shotgun on March 30th. Kurt told Dylan he was afraid of intruders at the house.
Cobain's friends say the only person who started telling the media he was suicidal, after
he died, was Courtney Love. This goes against everything Kurt himself told people in the
weeks leading up to his death. The media decides to go with Courtney's story with no
These are just a few of the reasons many around the world are wondering just what
really happened that first week of April 1994. This information has since been the subject
of books, films, television, radio shows, and many articles in recent years. Major media
outlets like VH1 and programs such as Unsolved Mysteries have run stories about this.
