Former chief of Seattle police, Norm Stamper believes that the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain should be re-investigated to finally settle if he was murdered or committed suicide.

“We should in fact have taken steps to study patterns involved in the behavior of key individuals who had a motive to see Kurt Cobain dead,” said Stamper to Spin Magazine. “If in fact Kurt Cobain was murdered, as opposed to having committed suicide, and it was possible to learn that, shame on us for not doing that. That was in fact our responsibility. It’s about right and wrong. It’s about honor. It’s about ethics. If we didn’t get it right the first time, we damn well better get it right the second time, and I would tell you right now if I were the Chief of Police, I would re-open this investigation.”

Stamper's assertion that the case should be re-opened comes in the wake of news that Courtney Love has been serving cease-and-desist letters to theaters showing the new Soaked In Bleach Kurt Cobain documentary, that allegedly supports claims that Cobain was murdered by Love.
