The news broke yesterday afternoon that the death of Kurt Cobain was being re-examined and fans went into a frenzy, but although there has been some activity surrounding the case, it’s not being reopened.

According to eonline.com:

“Despite an erroneous news report, we have not ‘reopened’ the investigation into the suicide of Kurt Cobain,” the Seattle police tweeted from their verified account.

As the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death approaches, a detective reviewed the case file, according to the police.

Apparently, what sparked the review was Seattle detective Renee Witt revealing that four rolls of 35 mm film taken at the scene of the singer’s death were developed just last month.

Witt says the photos don’t show anything new that would change the ruling on the case.

Cobain was found dead in his home on April 8, 1994, with a gunshot wound to his head.

His death was ruled a suicide, and the coroner also reported that Cobain had injected a lethal dose of heroin beforehand.
