Kurt Cobain's personal effects from the time of his death have been revealed in newly-released police photographs.

The Nirvana frontman was found dead at his home in Seattle, Washington on 8 April, 1994 and coroners subsequently ruled the singer shot himself three days before his body was discovered.

Authorities found four rolls of undeveloped film during a recent re-examination of the case and now local police have released the pictures to the public.

The previously-unseen snaps show Cobain's belongings scattered on the floor. The items include a hat, a pair of sunglasses, a packet of cigarettes and his wallet, while an opened cigar box appears to contain drug paraphernalia including needles and a spoon.

A statement posed on the Seattle Police Department's website on Thursday (20Mar14) also moves to silence conspiracy theories about Cobain's death, citing the recent investigation by a Cold Case Detective Mike Ciesynski, who agreed with the initial conclusions.

Ciesynski says of his findings, "Sometimes people believe what they read - some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That's completely inaccurate. It's a suicide. This is a closed case."
