“Millions of fans want to see the contradiction about death resolved once and for all”
The FBI has released archival records related to the late Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain, as noted in Rolling Stone. The 10-page document contains letters from two people who requested the Bureau to investigate the suicide of the rock star in 1994, which they believed involved foul play. One of them wrote: “The policeman who took over the case has never investigated the murder very seriously.”
Another letter dated September 24, 2003 read: “I think it would be a great injustice for Kurt Cobain.” The person then wrote. Said: “I am writing to you. I hope you can help me review the cause of Cobain’s death. Thousands of fans all over the world hope to see the contradiction about the cause of death be completely eliminated. It is a pity that it is considered unfair of this nature. Can be allowed in the United States”.
The FBI file also contains several letters from the bureau to individuals informing them that the FBI does not necessarily have jurisdiction to investigate possible homicides. The three responses read: “In order for the FBI to investigate any complaint it receives, it must provide specific facts that indicate that a violation of federal law has occurred within our investigative jurisdiction.”
The document ends with a fax sent by Cosgrove/Meurer Productions to the FBI in January 1997. CMP is the production company behind the documentary series “Unsolved Mysteries”, which aired an episode of Cobain in February 1997. The fax said: “There is at least one investigator, Tom Grant, a private investigator in Los Angeles and a former agent of the Los Angeles County Sheriff. He firmly believes that the official suicide decision is a hasty trial. “
Terry Meurer, co-founder of Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, told Rolling Stone: “We contacted the FBI to get various stories and tried to get information about them,” adding: “This is a typical communication.”
