Smells Like A Bestseller

Earlier this week, Choire mentioned that Simon and Schuster was to hold a press conference on Monday to announce “shocking” new evidence in the death of a rock icon. Since Monday is the tenth anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, it was fairly clear that the “shocking” stuff would have to do with the suicide. Today a new press release gives more information about In Love and Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain, by Max Wallace and Ian Halperin, alleging that Cobain had an already lethal dose of heroin in his system (which would be compatible with the murder-staged-as-suicide-theory), that there were no legible prints found on the gun, etc. Oy.
