Seattle Police have released 35 new photos of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's death scene in the run up to the 20th anniversary of the singer's death – see one example below.

A recent re-investigation into the suicide of the Nirvana legend almost 20 years ago discovered previously undeveloped photos taken at the scene, but no new evidence that changed the original findings, the Seattle Times reports. In an attempt to stifle the many conspiracy theories surrounding the singer's death, the department decided to release the newly developed photos.

The latest photos show Cobain's suicide note, with a pen stuck directly through the middle of it – the first pictures to show the original placement of the note. Also among the pictures are images of apparatus for taking heroin, which include syringes and a spoon.

Kurt Cobain was aged 27 when he was found dead of a shotgun wound in his home on Lake Washington Boulevard, Seattle on April 8, 1994. He was found by an electrician who had come to work on the house.

The police investigation determined that Cobain had committed suicide three days before, on April 5. Despite that finding, there have been conspiracy theories suggesting that the Nirvana frontman had been murdered.
