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.

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