The Seattle Police released pictures of the shotgun used during Kurt Cobain's alleged suicide. There was never any specific reason why the pictures were now released but it's theorized it was done due to the anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, as well as an attempt to attack P.I. Tom Grant over his claims that the Seattle police allowed Courtney to destroy the shotgun.
If the latter is true then this will ultimately blow up in the face of the Seattle police as Courtney Love herself is the origin of the stories that the shotgun was destroyed.
P.I. Tom Grant has made his reply to the release of the pictures.
