“He came upon this film, and that’s pretty much it. It is still a suicide.”

Detective Ciesynski added there were further pictures of Cobain dead at the scene which will not be released.

He said: "It was wasn't going to change my decision that this was a suicide and actually I'm the one that makes the decision finallly: do we go forward or not? Morally I would not be able to justify that. Legally I can't justify doing that."

Released in 1991, Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind sold 10 million copies. However for Cobain, worldwide fame came with a fatal price.

There are no more leads in the case, detectives have said
