The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States has published a ten-page report on the case of the death in 1994 of American rock musician Kurt Cobain, according to Deadline.
Among the files of the report are letters in which Cobain’s fans demanded that the FBI reopen the investigation into the death of the rock musician, citing television documentaries that questioned the official version of the suicide.
“Since then, evidence has been uncovered that he was murdered and did not commit suicide as originally thought,” writes the author of one of the letters.
Kurt Cobain died on April 8, 1994, according to the official version, which is criticized for a formal examination of the scene, he injected himself with a lethal dose of heroin and shot himself with a shotgun.
“Millions of fans around the world would like to see the inconsistencies associated with death eliminated once and for all. It is unfortunate to think that such an injustice can be allowed in the United States, “ another letter reads.
However, the FBI consistently responded to the authors of the letters that the investigation into the circumstances of Cobain’s death is not within the jurisdiction of the Bureau.
“We appreciate your concern that Mr. Cobain may have been the victim of a murder. However, most homicide/death investigations usually fall under the jurisdiction of state and local authorities<…> Based on the information you provide, we cannot identify any violations of federal law within the FBI’s investigative jurisdiction,” the Bureau’s standard response states.
