Kurt Cobain Commited Suicide

I didn’t go to the scene when Kurt Cobain killed himself.

I was in the office when the call came in.  Nobody who was going on the call knew who Kurt Cobain was, but he was a rock star, so they responded to the scene as they would a homicide.

Who knew what a cluster it would become.

Over the years, I became involved in the case a little bit.  I’ve seen the evidence and photographs, spoken to the Chief Medical Examiner about the case and gone over details very closely.

It was an obvious suicide.  Not even a close call.

Recently I was interviewed by Gary James of classisrock.com about Cobain’s death.

You can read that interview here.

Death Investigators

In my work as a Homicide Detective, I worked closely with Medicolegal Death Investigators.  They were a great help to me, and I count many as close personal friends.  They are professionals with a lot of training and steely countenance, but are greatly under-appreciated.  But not by me.

Here is a great article about that misunderstood profession.
