(Radio.com) In a shocking turn of events, Seattle police have re-opened the case surrounding the 1994 death of Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. According to KIRO 7, the reason behind the new look at the case revolves around four rolls of camera film that sat undeveloped in a police evidence vault until recently.

After developing and looking at the images, Seattle police said "they more clearly show the scene than the earlier Polaroid photos taken by investigators."

Cobain's death by shotgun blast had been determined a suicide by the medical examiner at the time, just days after leaving a rehab facility. The Nirvana frontman was found to have also taken a lethal dosage of heroin before the gunshot.

There are no indications if this new evidence is pointing towards any foul play involved in the singer's untimely death, which has long been the source of conjecture and controversy among fans and true-crime enthusiasts alike.

"He dug up the files and had another look and there was nothing new," she told the Seattle Times in regards to the detective's reexamination of the evidence. More details.
