ANOTHER COWARDLY MOVE
Because of threats from attorneys and intimidation by industry power
brokers, the media has failed to cover this investigation adequately. But
the attempts by Courtney's attorneys to silence the whole thing have
failed. The word is spreading successfully through various on-line services
and the Internet. A substantial support base is being established as the
investigation gains momentum and moves forward.
Keep in mind, the law firm of Codikow, Carroll, and Regis is in quite a
predicament. They're not only trying to keep things quiet for Courtney,
they're also trying to conceal the involvement and participation in this
investigation by Rosemary Carroll, a close friend of Courtney's who is a
partner in their law firm.
Courtney's attorneys recently made a quiet and cowardly behind-the-scenes
move. They filed a confidential complaint with the State Department Of
Consumer Affairs in Sacramento California. This is the agency that issues
licenses to private investigators in the State of California.
Rather than respond to the tough questions left in the wake of this
investigation, Courtney's attorneys are silently trying to get my license
suspended or revoked in an attempt to put me out of business and disable
this investigation by completely draining my already depleted resources.
This is a move that has been anticipated from the beginning. Preparations
have been made in advance. They've simply lit a small fuse here that will
eventually ignite. When the dust settles, you'll notice a tremendous
increase in visibility.
WAS THIS A VIOLATION OF THE LAW?
The complaint filed on Courtney's behalf claims I violated a section of the
California Business and Professions code in revealing the facts of my
investigation to the public.
The code basically states that a private investigator can't disclose
information about an investigation to anyone other than law enforcement,
without the consent of the investigator's client.

Re: Case #IA 95 7769 - PI Lic.# 16603
Dear Ms. Just,
In response to the complaint filed, I've listed below the reasons for my
1. Immediately after Kurt Cobain's body was found, my client gave my
telephone number to members of the press. She had not only given me
permission to talk to reporters, she encouraged me to do so. She apparently
assumed I was in a position where I'd have to say something favorable.
Because of my suspicions at the time, I declined. I wasn't about to make
any public statements that I'd later have to go back on.
2. I believe my client hired me under false pretenses, therefore voiding
any legitimate client/investigator relationship.
3. On May 8, 1994, one month after Kurt Cobain's death, I advised Ms. Love
she was no longer my client as far as this investigation is concerned, and
that there would be no further charges for my services.
Ms. Love continued to hire me for other unrelated investigations in an
obvious attempt to keep informed about what I was doing with the murder
investigation. I have no current plans to discuss the other investigations
publicly unless they somehow become more closely related to this case.
4. I tried on several occasions to get Ms. Love to come to my office and
meet with me while she was in Los Angeles. I warned her it was extremely
important. I wanted to discuss my suspicions in person and tell her about
some of my conclusions. I didn't want to simply send another letter. I felt
I needed to deal with her directly.
Ms. Love promised to meet with me within a couple of weeks, but even though
she came to Los Angeles for several days and stayed within two miles of my
office, she failed to meet with me.
5. As I began turning up information indicating a possible murder, I DID go
to the police as the law requires... within seven days after Cobain's
death! They chose to devalue the information I had gathered and ignored
countless inconsistencies, contradictions, and lies perpetrated by my
6. I notified my client in writing of my suspicions and she began
sabotaging my work.
7. Two other persons close to Ms. Love died under suspicious circumstances
within two months after the death of her husband. This is too much of a
coincidence for me to ignore without concern for my own personal safety.
8. Releasing this information to the public creates a safer atmosphere to
operate in for me and those who work with me.
9. Other people are dying here! Kids are killing themselves because of
misinformation in the press and the false belief that someone they looked
up to chose this way out of his problems.
10. The Seattle Police have ignored and continue to downplay legitimate
information indicating foul play in the death of Cobain. Based on
contradictions contained in their own police reports, the information
they've released to the press and the public has been proven to be
inaccurate and extremely misleading.
The effects of pride, politics, and concern over potential lawsuits have
resulted in a biased and dishonest evaluation of the circumstances
surrounding Cobain's death. The detectives on the Seattle Police Department
are highly motivated to cover-up a very sloppy investigation.
It would be foolish to continue furnishing the Seattle Police Department
with legitimate evidence, only to have it destroyed or discredited at will,
with no public accountability.
11. I will not keep silent about what I believe to be a murder, simply
because others want to close their eyes.
This case needs to be re-investigated by an independent governmental
agency. If you find that I violated this section of the Business and
Professions Code and if you suspend or revoke my license, your findings
will be appealed.
When a law endangers my life or the lives of others by forcing me to keep
quiet under these extenuating circumstances, it's time to either make an
exception to the law... or change it.
Laws are important: they shouldn't be ignored. But only a fool would stop
for a red light if he knew he was about to be rear-ended by a speeding

A TEMPORARY DIVERSION
They may get my license and I may be put out of business... temporarily.
If you've had difficulty understanding some of my strategy, I hope now
you're beginning to see the need to build a substantial base of public
support for this search for truth.
The mailing address for the Dept. Of Consumer affairs is included in the
above letter. Please feel free to write to them and express your support
for the continuation of this investigation.
In responding to your mail, from the beginning I've told many of you that
this is going to be a long slow process. There are going to be roadblocks,
smoke screens, diversions, distractions and continued deception by those
involved in the cover-up. But eventually, as public support continues to
increase, this job will be done.
