In recent weeks, Courtney and Frances have pleaded with a judge to not releases photos of Kurt Cobain‘s 1994 suicide to the public, a move they claim would cause them “indescribable pain”.
Since Cobain’s suicide, only two photos have been released from the scene — a picture of a box containing drug paraphernalia and another of the singer’s cash, cigarette pack, and wallet containing his identification.
The only reason why a judge is considering unsealing the devastating photos is due to a lawsuit from Richard Lee, who runs a Seattle public access TV show. Richard believes that the release of the images will prove that Kurt was murdered, a popular conspiracy theory held by many Nirvana fans.
Frances disagrees with Lee’s assessment, saying:
“I have had to cope with many personal issues because of my father’s death. Coping with even the possibility that those photographs could be made public is very difficult. Further sensationalizing it through the release of the these pictures would cause us indescribable pain.”
Aw, we really feel for the 22-year-old! Considering the recent documentary about her dad, Kurt Cobain: A Montage of Heck, was difficult for the artist, we bet this new development is just as trying.
So, do YOU think the photos should be released?
