The King County Sheriff’s Office recently assigned a detective to look into the files, almost 20 years after the Nirvana frontman was found dead in his home here.
Four developed rolls of 35mm film depicting images from the scene of the rocker’s death have been found. But the case will not be reopened, reports contactmusic.com.
“He dug up the files and had another look and there was nothing new,” police spokesperson Renee Witt told the Seattle Times.
The Seattle Police Department also wrote on Twitter: “Despite an erroneous news report, we have not ‘reopened’ the investigation into the suicide of Kurt Cobain.
“Our detective reviewed the case file anticipating questions surrounding the closed Cobain case as the 20 yr anniversary approaches (sic).”
Cobain’s body was found by an electrician April 8, 1994.
An autopsy had revealed that the 27-year-old singer had died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound and had a lethal amount of heroin in his bloodstream.
A medical examiner ruled it as a case of suicide.
