Authorities in Seattle, Washington have dismissed reports suggesting they are re-opening an investigation into Kurt Cobain's suicide, 20 years after his death.

A Seattle cold-case detective recently revisited police files detailing the Nirvana frontman's demise in April, 1994, which was officially ruled a suicide, prompting rumours suggesting cops were taking another look at the case.

However, police spokeswoman Renee Witt has spoken out to clear up the false claims, stating, "He dug up the files and had another look and there was nothing new."

Instead, Witt revealed officials will be releasing new photographs discovered during the re-examination of Cobain's death and will answer any questions about the case on the anniversary of the rock star's death next month (Apr14), reports the Seattle Times.

Cobain was found dead from a bullet to the head, with a shotgun laid across his body at his Lake Washington Boulevard home on 8 April, 1994. Coroners determined the tragic rocker had taken his own life three days prior to the discovery of his remains.
