SEATTLE (AP) — Police in Seattle have released photos of the shotgun Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain used to kill himself more than two decades ago.
Seattle police cold case Detective Mike Ciesynski is shown holding Cobain’s gun at different angles in five photos posted to the police department’s website Wednesday.
The photos were taken in June 2015, added to the city of Seattle’s computer system March 3 and since then have been added to the investigative file, according to police.
It’s unclear why they took the photos last year or why they’re releasing them to the public at this time.
A message left with Seattle police wasn’t immediately returned.

A former Qing dynasty fortress, it never fully came under the regulation Continue reading →

Located south of the former city gate (the “Barrière d’Enfer” at today’s Place Denfert-Rochereau), the ossuaries hold the remains of about six million people and fill a renovated section of caverns and tunnels that are the remains of historical stone mines, giving it its reputation as “The Continue reading →
We visited Port Vell and Corbera de Ebro last weekend. It is exactly 77 years after the battle for Ebro-The bloodiest battle during 2 years long civil war. This town was completely destroyed during 25 July–16 November 1938 and although the lower part of the town was rebuilt, the upper part, known as Poble Vell (Old Town), including the old church on the hill, has been kept as a reminder.
For two years now the foundations of social revolution have been being developed in Rojava, the west of Kurdistan. Bearing this, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the basis of the attacks against Kobanê is the interest politics of Turkish State and global capitalism. Continue reading →
