Police to release new photo from Kurt Cobain's death investigation; singer committed suicide in 1994

SEATTLE - Seattle police plan to release a new photograph discovered during a re-examination of the death of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt said Thursday that the fresh look at the case found nothing new. She said a cold case detective took a fresh look at the Cobain files in anticipation of questions next month, the 20th anniversary of the rock star's death. Witt said the new image would be released later Thursday.

Cobain's body was discovered in Seattle on April 8, 1994. An investigation determined he committed suicide.

Cobain, who was 27 when he died, helped popularize the Pacific Northwest's heavy, muddy "grunge" rock, along with bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Mudhoney.
