Seattle Police say they are reviewing evidence from the death investigation of former Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain, but say they are not re-opening the case.

Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home on April 8, 1994, by an electrician who showed up to install a security system.

The medical examiner determined Cobain had died three days earlier and ruled the death a suicide from a gunshot wound to the head. A shotgun and a suicide note were found at the scene. Drugs were also found in his bloodstream.

A report published Thursday said police were re-opening the investigation, but Seattle Police spokesperson Renee Witt said a cold case detective was going back and looking at old files in preparation for the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death. Witt says the case has not been re-opened.
