Two decades after Kurt Cobain's suicide, officials have released a note found in his wallet on the day he died. The note, which was obtained from police by CBS News via a public information request, appears to mock the Nirvana rocker's then-wife, Courtney Love, in a rewrite of traditional wedding vows.

It reads: "Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife even when she's a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring…" 

According to CBS, which published the note on Tuesday, April 29, the undated piece of paper was taken from Cobain's wallet when police discovered his body at his Seattle-area home on April 8, 1994. It was logged into evidence at the Seattle Police Department but never made public until now.

Recently, the SPD decided to review their files on Cobain's death. As part of this process, they released more than 30 never-before-seen photos from the investigation.

"I had to clear up some issues that made people believe there was some type of a cover-up," Det. Mike Ciesynski, a cold case investigator, told CBS News affiliate KIRO. "And one of those [issues] was that I had to process some 35 mm film that never was processed before."

Ultimately, the review confirmed the King County Medical Examiner's original report, which ruled Cobain's death a suicide.
