Why Did Both Occupants of Kurt Cobain's Home Fly Out of Seattle Just Prior to the Discovery of His Body?

It's no small matter that both occupants of Kurt Cobain's Seattle home took flights out of Seattle in the days immediately prior to the discovery of his body.

According to the police report, Michael “Cali” Dewitt, a live-in nanny who was also a drug addict at the time, was transported by taxi from the Cobain home to the airport on Thursday, April 7, the day prior to the discovery of Mr. Cobain's body, whereupon Dewitt flew to Los Angeles. Jessica Hopper, the other occupant, was Dewitt's girlfriend who was visiting him while on vacation from a Minneapolis school; according to Charles Cross, Hopper was transported from the Cobain home to the airport on Wednesday, April 6, whereupon she flew back to Minneapolis.

The April 6 date of Hopper's departure is supported by multiple statements given by Hopper to Everett True, wherein, by way of example, Hopper states that she departed “midweek” and that she was present when Eric Erlandson arrived at the estate from Los Angeles, which is reported by Cross to have been on Tuesday, April 5.

Dewitt and Hopper appear to be the only individuals residing at the Cobain estate at the time.

As is widely known, Mr. Cobain's body would be discovered on the morning of April 8 in the greenhouse, which was located just next to the main residence that Dewitt and Hopper had been occupying. No legible fingerprints were discovered on the shotgun discharged into Mr. Cobain and, among numerous other questions of evidence, the results of his toxicology revealed a triple-lethal dose of heroin, suggesting he was incapacitated prior to discharge of the firearm. The official date of Mr. Cobain's death is listed as April 5.

Both of the aforementioned departures appear to have been abrupt and, in the case of Jessica Hopper, extremely emotionally charged – Hopper asserts that she was so distressed that she vomited in the driveway while departing the estate and that “I was sick for two days when I got back because I was such a mess.” The level of this distress is echoed in a recent and highly emotional audio clip wherein Hopper is questioned about her experiences while at the Cobain home at the time.

Both Dewitt and Hopper appear to have been befriended by Mr. Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, when they were minors; Dewitt asserts that Love took him “under her wing” approximately four years prior to Mr. Cobain's death, when he was sixteen; Hopper indicates that Love befriended her approximately two years prior to Mr. Cobain's passing, when she was either fifteen or sixteen. Ms. Love has a history of violence and manipulation and engaged in a number of suspicious behaviors near the time of her husband's death, including misrepresenting her identity in a Missing Persons Report filed with the Seattle Police Department.

According to Rosemary Carroll, Ms. Love's and Mr. Cobain's attorney at the time, Mr. Cobain was in the process of divorcing Ms. Love and removing her from his unfinished will near the time of his death. A prenuptial agreement was also in place.

Norm Stamper, The former Chief of the Seattle Police Department at the time of Mr. Cobain's passing, has recently stated that he would reopen the Cobain case if he were chief again and that the behavioral patterns of those with a motive to see Mr. Cobain dead should have been studied.

Notably, additional statements by Hopper to Everett True bearing on the date of her departure from the decedent's home are strangely contradictory in nature, with Hopper twice unmistakably indicating that she left the Cobain home for Minneapolis on the same day she and Dewitt observed Mr. Cobain in Dewitt's bedroom, which was on Saturday morning, April 2. As indicated above, however, this April 2 date of departure is an impossibility given Hopper's various other assertions to True. Why is Hopper offering obviously contradictory accounts bearing on the date of her departure from the decedent's home?

Given the high volume of troubling evidentiary concerns relating to Mr. Cobain's death, Dewitt's and Hopper's departures are highly relevant and need to be probed in depth by authorities. It's worthwhile here to keep in mind that Dewitt and Hopper chose not to merely depart the Seattle residence of Mr. Cobain, but chose to leave the state of Washington altogether.


  1. Very well worded.. The logic behind your post should have been used in the94 "investigation".. Thank you for taking the time to present this

  2. You have to wonder why she was so distressed. What did she see or know to distress her so bad, she left before the body was found

    1. Absolutely. Your questions are right on the money.

  3. Well said and i didnt know any of that makes even more questions id she was that distressed she knew something or knew about his body in the green house

  4. She saw the body lying on the floor and do nothing. She escape because she was too affraid of the whole thing surrounding this death. When your on heroin, you don't need more shit than you got. She knew it will be the end after this. So she run away like a poor junkie.

  5. Not to mention right after Kurt's death, Courtney claiming to give Cali 60k "to go to rehab on the east coast" as if that's not suspicious at all!

  6. My personal standing theory: Kurt overdosed somewhere, possibly a dealers/friends house- and his body was dropped off at his house where Cali n his gf were at the time- they didn't know what to do, so as instructed by Courtney, made Kurts Overdose look like a suicide- I think Cali n his girl left because they knew the body was there and after x amount of days of it still not being discovered, decided to leave, in a state of panic and shock because they were staying at the house where they knew Kurt's remains where. They could not stand being there another day especially because Tom Grant was on the trail at that point, simply hired to find the remains but sent on a goose chase to make it look official. The goose chase he was sent on was orchestrated by Love- she wanted to make it look good. Love's own drug use and confusion through all this had a communication breakdown with Dylan Carlson who was simply a guide to do her bidding as far as where to take Grant... I think Dylan was fkd up and misunderstood instructions to eventually take Grant to green house where he knew the remains were. Dylan either misunderstood her or just could not bring himself to show Grant the location of Kurts remains. Dylan was Kurts friend- but Love sold everybody that was loyal to her that this was the best route to go- because either way Kurt was dead- but this route would lead to the best end game result of financial success with album sales and Nirvana/Hole money.

    Other people hired by Courtney, set up the fake suicide, these other people are unknown, but hired 3rd parties were called in by Courtney to set it up like a suicide.

    This is just my own theory as to what may have happened...

  7. But why kill a man twice? What would the difference be if they had just found him dead of an overdose, no gunshot wound?
