Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain Urge Court Not To Release Kurt's Death Photos


Kurt Cobain's family, Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain, are urging a Seattle judge to not authorize the release of his death photos.

Seattle Superior Court judge Theresa Doyle will hear arguments from both Love and daughter Frances Bean, as well as from Richard Lee, who runs a local public access television show. The Seattle Times reports that Lee has sued the city of Seattle as well as the Seattle Police Department for concealing the documents.

The city of Seattle is arguing that the material should remain private for the privacy of Cobain's family and loved ones. Love and Frances Bean have detailed the psychological effect that it would have on their lives if the photos were released.

"I have had to cope with many personal issues because of my father's death. Coping with even the possibility that those photographs could be made public is very difficult," Frances Bean wrote in a statement. "Further sensationalizing it through the release of these pictures would cause us indescribable pain."
