Soaked in Bleach

Synopsis: Reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain's death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain's death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff's detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

He's reaching out,

really, for the downtrodden

Of society, for the average

Joe on the street who wants

To look up to his lyrics

and his music and say,

"Hey, this man's talking my language. "

You guys don't like explaining anything

To do with your music...

There's nothing to be said,

It's all in the music, man.

It's all in the music.

If there was a John Lennon-type figure

For the so-called "Generation

X," it would be Cobain.

The body of Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain

Was found in a house in

Seattle on Friday morning,

Dead of an apparently

self-inflicted shotgun blast

To the head.

An electrician hired

to work on Cobain's home

Walked up to this room

above Cobain's garage

And made the shocking

discovery this morning.

A suicide note was found.

This is a puzzling case,

A very disturbing case.

It first got reported

that Kurt was missing

And Courtney Love hired

private investigator Tom Grant.

I had been involved in

Missing persons cases before.

Some red flags started

popping up immediately,

So I began recording every

conversation I had with Courtney

During the entire period

that I worked for her.

My name is

It could be made to look like a suicide.

People that I had do this, I paid.

I've walked into cases that looked

Like they were suicides that

turned out to be homicides.

Cobain's wife, singer Courtney Love,

Was in England on

tour with her band Hole

When the body was discovered.

As it is, she has inherited an estate

Worth tens of millions of dollars.

That's motive.

Did Courtney Love kill Kurt Cobain?

Did she have a hand in

any kind of conspiracy?

These are favorite topics of fanatics.

There's nothing in

the medical examiner's

Report or coroner's reports

that could not have easily

Have been duplicated by a murderer.

It's entirely possible

that a police officer,

No matter how well-trained,

may not see or notice

A particular item of evidence.

Kurt Cobain was not barricaded

Inside the room.

He did not leave his

driver's license out.

No one would believe

that was a suicide note.

Kurt Cobain was

injected with three times

The lethal dose of heroin.

The media was getting this wrong.

Are you sure he's not in there?

I knocked for at least five minutes.

If he's there he would have answered.

Alright, I just don't wanna end up

On the wrong end of a shotgun.

Let's go.




If we find it we're gonna have

To take it, right?


Which I can legally

do since I bought it.

It's in my name, so...

Not here, could it be under the bed?

Might be.

No. Alright, let's move this.

Alright, what is this?

This mean anything to ya?

Rohypnol, that's where they are.


He kept saying someone stole 'em,

But they've been sitting there.

These are what he OD'ed on in Rome.

Well she didn't want us to take those.


Uh, wait a minute.

Would she be okay if you keep 'em?


Are they legal here?

Yeah, they're completely

legal, they're like...

What are they used for?

They're sold as a sedative for

Sleeping ailments, and sometimes

they're given to people...

And if we get pulled over, you're not

Gonna get arrested for havin' those?

No, they're fine.

Well it's obviously

not here, the shotgun.

No, and I dunno where it would be.

Is there anywhere else?



My name is Tom Grant.

I was hired by Courtney

Love to find her missing

Husband, Kurt Cobain, in April of 1994.

My father was a schoolteacher,

And this is a man I

never caught one time

In my entire life telling a lie.

He was the best role

model anybody can ask for.

By the time I became a
