Benjamin Statler's "SOAKED IN BLEACH"
Cobain Murder Investigation
Kurt Cobain left a drug rehab center in Marina Del Rey California on April 1, 1994 and
was later reported missing. As you probably know, he was found dead just seven days later.
My name is Tom Grant. I am a retired private investigator and
former detective with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
On April 3, 1994 (while conducting business as a California State licensed private investigator), I was
hired by Courtney Love (who was in Los Angeles at the time), to locate her husband
after he left a drug rehab center in Marina Del Rey, California. Ms. Love stayed in
Los Angeles while I flew to Seattle to search for Cobain with his best friend Dylan
Carlson. In fact, Carlson and I had been in the Cobain residence the night before
Kurt's body was discovered in the room above the garage.
The police immediately concluded "suicide." I wasn't so sure. Neither was Rosemary
Carroll, Courtney Love's own entertainment attorney. Ms. Carroll was also a close
friend to both Courtney and Kurt. We both knew something was terribly wrong here.
After several months of intensive investigation, including dozens of taped interviews
with Cobain's closest friends and family members, I reached the conclusion that Courtney
Love and Michael Dewitt, (the male nanny who lived at the Cobain residence), were
involved in a conspiracy that resulted in the murder of Kurt Cobain.
It appears this was not the first attempt on Cobain's life by Courtney Love, however, it was obviously
the first to succeed.
In December of 1994, I began speaking publicly about the suspicious circumstances
surrounding Cobain's death.
Facing the potential consequences of exposure, Courtney Love, her wealthy and powerful friends, her attorney's and the symbiotic "rock press" have engaged in an effort to keep the public from learning the true facts about Kurt's death.
These are people who are motivated by profit rather than truth. Courtney's attorneys have consistently threatened those in various media outlets with "potential lawsuits" if these journalists were to give me a platform from which to discuss my investigation of the Cobain Case.
As I predicted when I first began telling the public about the details of my investigation more than 21 years ago, no legal, criminal or civil, action has ever been taken against myself or anyone in the media who has covered this story.
In spite of the hot air they've been blowing all these years, this investigation has received coverage in hundreds of major newspapers, magazines, television and radio talk shows around the globe.
The pathetic cowards of this world can only blow smoke. Once they've been exposed, they run and hide
The events surrounding the death of Kurt Cobain are filled with lies, contradictions
in logic, and countless inconsistencies.
Here is just some of...
What You Were Never Told:
Courtney Love was facing a divorce.
Kurt was in the process of leaving Seattle and his wife Courtney, when he was
Courtney knew Kurt wanted out of the marriage. Just weeks prior to his death, she
asked one of her attorneys to get the "meanest, most vicious divorce lawyer"
she could find.
Someone was using Kurt's credit card.
One of Kurt's credit cards was missing when his body was discovered.
Someone was attempting to use the missing credit card after Cobain died, but the
attempts stopped when his body was discovered.
Cobain was in fear of his life.
The shotgun found at the scene was purchased BEFORE Cobain left for rehab in Los
Angeles, NOT AFTER he fled the rehab as reported by misinformed media sources.
The shotgun was fully loaded with three shells. It was purchased and loaded for
protection, not suicide.
The police claim there were no legible fingerprints on this shotgun!
The truth is, the shotgun wasn't even checked for fingerprints until May 6th,
nearly one month after Cobain's body was found.
There was no "suicide" note!
The note found at the scene by the police was immediately labeled as a "suicide note."
The police report states it was "apparently written by Cobain to his wife and daughter,
explaining why he had killed himself."
But this note was not addressed to Kurt's wife and daughter and it says nothing about
"killing himself!" This note was clearly written to Cobain's fans telling them he
was quitting the music business. There was only a short footnote to Courtney and
Frances and the handwriting contained in those lines has been questioned by several
Courtney had another note she kept in secret.
Courtney was in possession of a second note after Kurt's body was found! SHE
DIDN'T TELL ANYONE about this second note until several months later when information
about it slipped out during an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.
The second note, the one that Courtney kept in secret, clearly defines the first note
which was found at the scene of Cobain's death. The "second note" from Kurt plainly
states he was leaving Courtney and he was leaving Seattle. He was NOT leaving the planet.
Cobain was injected with 3 times a lethal dose of heroin!
Cobain's heroin, (morphine), blood level was 1.52 mgs per liter. This would require
a minimum injection of 225 mgs of heroin, three times a lethal dose, even for a
hardcore heroin addict. The drug Diazepam, was also found in Cobain's blood system.
The obvious questions:
1. IF Cobain injected three times a lethal dose of heroin, COULD he then pick up
a shotgun and shoot himself? Wouldn't he have been immediately incapacitated?
Based on the heroin, (morphine), blood levels found in Cobain's body, preliminary
research indicates Kurt Cobain would have been almost immediately incapacitated. He could
not have picked up that shotgun. He could not have pulled that trigger!
2. If Cobain injected himself with a deliberate heroin overdose, why would he ALSO
shoot himself in the head with a shotgun, leaving his baby daughter - the love
of his life - with horrific visual images to remember him by? Why not just
"go to sleep" on the overdose and never wake up?
Cobain was not barricaded inside the room as reported by misinformed media sources.
The stool which was supposedly wedged" against the door was actually just sitting
in front of the two unlocked doors that only led out to a balcony.
Cobain did not leave his Driver's License out for identification as reported by
misinformed media sources.
The first police officer on the scene found Cobain's closed wallet, opened it to
remove Kurt's driver's license, and displayed it in order to take a photograph.
The fact is -
the police and the Medical Examiner have no forensic evidence that proves Cobain's
death was a suicide. On the other hand, there's a
substantial amount of evidence for murder.
The official verdict of "suicide" was simply a rush to judgement which
eventually painted the authorities into a corner as reports of so-called "copy-cat"
suicides began making the news.
As you examine this case carefully, you're going to discover there's much more to
the events surrounding Cobain's death than what you've been told.
The term, "conspiracy," is merely a legal term describing the planning or plotting of a crime by two or more persons.
If I had reached the conclusion that only one person was involved in planning and carrying out the murder of Kurt Cobain, we would be discussing a "Murder Theory," not a "Conspiracy Theory".
My job is to call it as I see it. I don't change legal terminology simply to avoid criticism in order to make my conclusions easier for the reading or viewing public to swallow.
It is what it is.
Criminal conspiracy is defined as an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or to perpetrate an illegal act.
Conspiracy crimes that are federal can include conspiracy to engage in criminal activity such as money laundering, conspiracy to violate federal laws, or conspiracy to manufacture drugs or weapons.
Conspiracy charges in state court are very similar, but there are many more crimes that will give rise to state conspiracy charges. While intent is key in any federal conspiracy case, only general intent to violate the law is necessary. Proof of the defendant's specific intent to violate the law is not needed, only an agreement to engage in an illegal act.
So according to the legal definition described above, there are literally thousands of true "conspiracies" committed every single day of every single year across the United States alone, plus many more thousands around the world.
"Conspiracies" are very real. Ask any police officer or prosecuting attorney.
