“Dear whoever it concerns, I believe that a great injustice could have been done in the case of Kurt Cobain,” wrote an anonymous author in an email to the FBI office in Seattle in 2013.
“The official story of the Seattle Police Department is that they committed suicide, but there are a lot of unanswered questions and inconsistencies with that,” he continues.
“I think… the information has been ignored and suppressed long enough by the Seattle police and the media. I am writing to you in the hope of your help in pushing for a review of Mr. Cobain’s death. Millions of fans around the world would love to see the inconsistencies surrounding death cleared up once and for all. It is sad to think that an injustice of this nature can be allowed in the United States. “

“Your letter… to the FBI expressing your belief that Kurt Cobain was murdered has been returned to me for response,” he said. “We appreciate your concern that Mr. Cobain may have been the victim of a homicide. However, most homicide investigations generally fall within the purview of state and local authorities. “
The response continued, “In order for the FBI to investigate any complaint we receive, specific facts must be present to indicate that a violation of federal law within our investigative jurisdiction has taken place.” Based on the information you have provided, we cannot identify any violations of federal law that fall under the FBI’s investigative jurisdiction. We are therefore unable to take any investigative action in this matter. “
