||PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED KURT COBAIN DEATH SCENE PHOTOS NOW ONLINE
10th April 2013
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer online newspaper has unveiled a number of never-before-published photos of Kurt Cobain's death scene, some of which show the Nirvana singer being carried out of his home by medical workers.
Although Cobain's body was discovered by an electrician on April 8th 1994, medical examiners determined the rock legend died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound three days earlier on April 5th.
A photograph of his body, which shows him from the waist-down, was widely publicized shortly after his demise, but it's taken 19 years, alomost to the day, for these new pictures to see the light of day.

Mike Urban, who worked for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1994, took the newly published pictures while covering the breaking news of Cobain's death. Urban's negatives, along with those from other photographers, simply sat at the Museum of History and Industry among millions of preserved negatives for years before being published by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer website a couple of days ago.
Along with images of Cobain's property along with fans mourning the late musician, there are a number of photos that depict Cobain's body wrapped under a white sheet while being taken out of his home on a stretcher.
Although the images aren't graphic in nature, some people may find them disturbing.
