Kurt Cobain murder accusation files have been released by the FBI.
“I believe a great injustice might have been committed in the case of Kurt Cobain,” a September 2003 latter from a fan states. “I’m writing you in hopes for your help to press for a reexamination of Mr. Cobain’s death. Millions of fans around the world would like to see the inconsistencies surrounding the death cleared up once and for all. It is sad to think that an injustice of this nature can be allowed in the United States.”
The FBI responded to another fan, “Your communication postmarked September 21, 2006, to the FBI expressing your belief that the Kurt Cobain death investigation should be reopened has been referred to me for response. We appreciate your concern that Mr. Cobain may have been the victim of a homicide. However, most homicide investigations generally fall within the jurisdiction of state or local authorities.
In order for the FBI to initiate an investigation of any complaint we receive, specific facts must be present to indicate that a violation of federal law within our investigative jurisdiction has occurred. Based on the information you provided, we are unable to identify any violation of federal law within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI. We are, therefore, unable to take any investigative action in this case.”
‘Unsolved Mystery’ producers Cosgrove/Meurer Productions sent the FBI a letter in January 1997. The letter states, “At least one investigator, Tom Grant, a Los Angeles based private investigator and former L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy, is convinced that the official ruling of suicide was a rush to judgment.”
