Courtney Love Murdered Kurt Cobain
The lead singer of the grunge band, Nirvana, Kurt Cobain became the voice of a generation in the early ’90s. Struggling with drug addiction and the pitfalls of becoming a celebrity, Cobain was found dead by a gunshot wound to the head in 1994. The case was deemed a suicide, with investigators claiming it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound that had killed Cobain. The autopsy also stated that his body had heroin and Diazepam in it at the time of his death. While there were a number of films released about his life and death shortly afterward, the one that has created the most intrigue was Soaked in Bleach. Courtney Love had hired a private investigator, Tom Grant, shortly after Cobain ran off from Exodus Recovery Center, a detox facility. The docudrama is based on Grant’s experience as a former police detective, and the inconsistencies that emerged while investigating the Cobain case. Many things were called into question: the timing that Love reached out to Grant to report Cobain “missing” aligned with what the coroner’s report estimated as his time of death, Love’s volatile behavior, and the fact that Cobain wasn’t suicidal by anyone’s reports except Courtney Love.
