(Newser) As promised, Seattle police released two previously photos from the scene of Kurt Cobain's suicide late yesterday. The images were unearthed by a detective who found four rolls of undeveloped film from the scene. One shows a box containing drug paraphernalia, a spoon, and what look like needles on the floor next to half a cigarette and sunglasses. The other shows the paraphernalia box closed, next to cash, a cigarette pack, and a wallet that appears to show Cobain's identification. Police reviewed the case files in anticipation of the 20th anniversary of Cobain's death next month, but "there was nothing earth-shattering in any of these images," a spokesperson says. "The outcome of the case has not changed."

"There was nothing earth-shattering in any of these images. The outcome of the case has not changed." Yeah, but i bet Courtney was sweating bullets there for a while... wondering if they might catch her this time around. (Wow. 20 years?)

??...There are TWO photos here. Any crime scene photographer who takes pictures at the scene would not disturb any evidence before ALL evidence has been evaluated. Yet, it is very evident in both PHOTOS that they are different!!.. One photo is of a drugs box open, and then the next photo it shows the same box "closed" ...?? .. (just thinking....)
