Kurt Cobain’s Death Should Be Reinvestigated, Says Former Seattle Police Chief

Spoiler alert: Director Benjamin Statler’s docudrama “Soaked In Bleach” ends with former Seattle Police chief Norm Stamper saying he would reopen the investigation into the death of Kurt Cobain, if he were calling the shots today.

But Stamper was the guy in charge from 1994 to 2000, including the time of Cobain’s death. He now insists that Seattle Police should “have taken steps to study patterns involved in the behavior of key individuals who had a motive to see Kurt Cobain dead.”

He went on to to say that, “If in fact Kurt Cobain was murdered, as opposed to having committed suicide, and it was possible to learn that, shame on us for not doing that. That was in fact our responsibility. It’s about right and wrong. It’s about honor. It’s about ethics.”

Stamper hammered home his point, adding: “If we didn’t get it right the first time, we damn well better get it right the second time, and I would tell you right now if I were the Chief of Police, I would reopen this investigation.”

The movie, which is told from the perspective of private investigator Tom Grant, (who was hired by Cobain’s wife Courtney Love to find her husband after he went missing from a rehab center in Los Angeles), is woven together through reenactments of the the hours of recorded conversations between Grant and Love, and interviews with experts who refuse to believe Cobain died by suicide.

The present-day Seattle Police Department do not share their sentiments. Last year, just before the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death, rumors began flying that authorities were about to reopen an investigation after it was reported they had developed four rolls of film from the crime scene that had been sitting in an evidence vault.

While the photos were released to the public, the Seattle PD made it very clear they were not reopening the case. “No change, no developments, no new leads,” a police spokeswoman said, while the department tweeted, “Our detective reviewed the case file anticipating questions surrounding the closed Cobain case as the 20 yr anniversary approaches.”

The movie addressed the undeveloped film and reenacts a scene in which Grant is told the photos will probably never be developed because they “don’t develop photos on suicides.” “Soaked In Bleach” goes on to claim that “by their negligent death investigation,” the Seattle Police:

  • Allowed Kurt Cobain to be cremated 6 days after being discovered.
  • Waited 30 days to process the shotgun for fingerprints.
  • Gave Courtney Love the shotgun to have it melted down.
  • Allowed the greenhouse crime scene to be torn down and destroyed.

The Queer Teen Who Ran Away from Home, Joined a Cabaret, and Became an Seattle Nightlife Icon


One of the first friends I met when I moved to Seattle was Zak, standing by a urinal trough wearing golden armor down one arm and shiny metallic underwear. To be fair, it was Halloween; but since then I’ve seen him dress similarly on more than one occasion since then. He’s just that kind of star.

I was lucky enough to interview Zak this week for The Sewers of Paris, my podcast about entertainment that’s changed the lives of gay men. I didn’t know it when we met, but it had taken Zak years and a lot of searching to become the amazing man I met at The Eagle on Halloween night. Our conversation on this week’s episode is all about his upbringing in a house full of strippers, running away to become a homeless youth for several years, and eventually finding himself in the underground cabaret culture of Seattle.

That kind of teenage hunt for identity is fertile ground for exploration in movies and TV. Take, for example, the perfect (and therefore doomed) TV show Freaks and Geeks. It’s the story of a high school student named Lindsay — a good kid who suddenly realizes that she’s growing up into someone who is not the mild-mannered girl she’d always been.

She starts rejecting her well-behaved friends in favor of the bad kids. She lets her schoolwork slip, she dabbles with misbehavior, and she does her best to make her parents worry. Throughout the show’s one and only season, Lindsay’s torn between the safe, secure life she’d always led, and that of the freaks: dangerous, disobedient, uninhibited and also unstable.

Lindsay finds herself running away from one life before she really knows what life she’s running to. And so she explores a series of costumes, new outfits, new language, new friends. Lindsay does the same thing Zak did — the same thing we all do when we’re becoming adults, to varying degrees. When we’re teenagers, we’re turning into a stranger, a grown-up we’ve never met. So we adopt new clothes and surround ourselves with friends in the hopes that these things will reveal to us who the heck we’re going to be.

And while adolescence is about searching and transformation, adulthood — hopefully — is when you discover the person you’ve become.

That brings me to my second recommendation of this week’s episode: the 1994 film Ed Wood, one of the most wonderful movies ever made. Tim Burton’s semi-true dramatization tells the story of Ed, an outcast in a lovely angora sweater. He’s a cross-dresser making a series of movies so strange that they will probably be remembered for hundreds of years as the weirdest visions ever committed to film.

Ed carries his secret deep down inside, never letting on that this is who he is. And like any attempt to deny yourself, Ed’s secret tears him up.

It’s only when he reveals himself — his true self — that things start going Ed’s way. In part, that’s because he’s been lucky enough to have cultivated a circle of people as weird as he is. His friends are freaks, and they like it that way. A vampire hostess, a local psychic, a meathead wrestler and a strange homosexual: Grown-up freaks who’ve decided that it’s better to live authentically as weirdos for themselves than try to squeeze into an a ridiculous business suit.

When Ed embraces his secret, he’s embraced by his friends. And he can finally embrace himself. The real himself. It’s means he can finally be Ed Wood, dressed in heels and panties and a delicate sweater. Just like he’d been doing all along in his heart.

None of this is to say that costumes are bad and dress-up is wrong, as long as you control the costume and not the other way around. By all means, go out, search, wear a suit or a skirt or a mohawk or crop-top.

Just remember to look in a mirror every now and then and ask the question Zak asked himself: do my outsides match my insides?

Seattle Mother Of 3 Arrested For Raping Sleeping Man

A Seattle woman was arrested and charged in a 2013 sex attack where she raped a man as he slept in his bed. Chantae Gilman, a mother of three, will serve nine months in jail and will be nationally registered as a sex offender.

Gilman, 28, entered a plea deal with prosecutors last Wednesday (May 13) according to documents acquired by The Smoking Gun website. Gilman admitted to attempted rape and assault charges, which stand as felonies in the state, but her charges were reduced slightly. The 32-year-old man, listed in court papers as “M.O.,” was not a friend or acquaintance of Gilman’s and only knew of her by way of a neighbor.

The Smoking Gun has more:

On the evening of the assault, the victim told police, he attended a birthday party for the neighbor whom Gilman knew. “Once arriving home he fell asleep on his bed,” Detective Roger Ishimitsu reported. “Victim slept very hard due to a long day.”

Around 2 AM, “M.O.” awoke to find the 240-pound Gilman on top of him. The victim told cops that his erect penis was inside Gilman, who had pinned his hands over his head. “M.O.” said that after Gilman ignored demands to get off him, he was “able to work his way out from underneath” her.

During police questioning, Gilman denied being in the victim’s home or having sex with him. Court and police records do not indicate how Gilman got into the man’s apartment. Gilman told investigators that she “has a mental illness and suffers from Bipolar disorder and Psychosis,” Ishimitsu reported.

As part of the plea deal, prosecutors will recommend to Gilman’s sentencing judge that she be barred from using or possessing alcohol or “non-prescribed drugs.” In Facebook posts last year, Gilman wrote of struggling with substance abuse.

Gilman had a long rap sheet going back 15 years, with convictions of theft, attempted robbery and forgery among the charges. It also appears she and M.O. had a previous run-in before, as she attacked the man last September when she was pregnant.
