Seattle Police Release Kurt Cobain Death-Scene Note

As if all the photos released from Kurt Cobain‘s death scene weren’t enough, the Seattle Police Department has now shared a note written by the late rocker.

The note, which was found in Cobain’s wallet after his April 5, 1994, suicide, was written on stationery from San Francisco’s Phoenix Hotel (which is “popular with a rock ‘n roll hipster clientele,” CBS News helpfully points out), is mostly just a bunch of angry words aimed at Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love.

Their relationship was always a rocky one, so it’s not clear if the words, supposedly penned by Cobain in his handwriting, were meant to be taken seriously or sarcastically (we have a pretty good guess, though).

“Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawfully shredded wife even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring … ” it reads.

There’s been speculation for years that Love had a hand in Cobain’s death, whether directly or leading him to the shotgun blast that ended his life. A recent reexamination of the case turned up nothing new.
