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?

  8. The shotgun was necessary to make sure there was no immediate publicity about a murder. The public was told it was a suicide eventhough the autopsy was not concluded for months.

    There were at least 4 people staying at the house while Kurt was still alive. Rene Navarette, Cali Dewitt, Jennifer Adamson and Jessica Hopper. I think there was a housekeeper in and out and a dope dealer.

    Jessica Hopper took off for Minniapolis via Chicago when Kurt was still alive...www. Kitty Radio,.com a website catering to girls who loved Courtney, reports she heard a tussle up stairs which means she was downstairs. I think she had a girlfriend with her because the 2005-2006 Kitty radio report uses the plural. Kurt was still alive or in a knocked out state, when she was shuttled off to the airport in a limo and puked in the driveway.

    I was at the house with Geraldo Rivera about a month later so I got a good look at the surroundings.

    Jennifer Adamson was also IN THE HOUSE when Kurt died. These two women are often confused by the media and the internet and I guess Fraser and the cops in Seattle. She is the one who took off on the 6th or 7th AFTER kurt died. Jessica Hopper probably didn't know Kurt was murdered but Jennifer did.

    Cali probably told both women a sad story of how Kurt OD. But Adamson had no place to go and no money. It was Hopper who took the red eye to Minneapolis. that's when I think they killed Kurt. So Hopper had vague knowledge but was not in on the plot. She says she wasn't doing heroin, but I think she was at least smoking it, like a good debutant groupie should. That's why she puked. That and the knowledge that something dire was going on. She claims she saw somebody in the greenhouse as she pulled away and thought it was Kurt.

    The shotgun wasn't used until the next day at least and that's why very little blood was found. Blood doesn't flow when it has coagulated. So here we are on Monday after Easter and Kurt has been dead for at least 24 hours, but not yet shot.

    I think Jennifer Adamson—McCauly Caulkin's half-sister (same dad) flew or drove to Oregon to stay with her Dad Chistoper"Kit" Caulkin and then (after a few months) drove or took a bus to Missoula Montana to be with her mother and her family. However Jennifer had an aunt in the Seattle area. Jennifer died six years later under suspicious circumstances and was buried with her mom in Hamilton County Montana at the Riverview Cemetery plot #9W. Jennifer died in May, her mom died in October 2000 (the same year) at age 53. Again odd.
    Even more bizarre is the fact that Jennifer was working as a night shift supervisor for the MDSC ( Missoula Developmental Services Corporation) a highly respected agency, and had been screened for drugs. She was found dead of an overdose in the kitchen of the South Hills Group Home for Disabled Adults, (not a half-way house) even though she had cleaned up her act at least six years earlier and was not on drugs of any kind, except the drugs that killed her. No drugs were found in her room or car. This facility was not a dope rehab facility but was, I stress, a house for mentally disabled adults.

    Rene Navarette disappeared but turns up again in LA working with Cali on some kind of food delivery service called the Scooby Wagon. Scooby is a slang term for dope, so it may have been a dope and food delivery service. Mysteriously Cali got a high paying job with Geffen records, doing almost nothing, and his girlfriend got a job working for Geffen at Geffen's museum, I think the concession stand, but not sure.

    Jessica Hopper visited Cali in LA at least once and stayed for a time, again not sure how long or how often. But she did continue the relationship a long time after Kurt died and after the HOLE scene shifted to LA.


    1. Do you know how/why of if Elizabeth Peyton played a role after Kurt left the rehab in LA??

    2. Do you know how Elizabeth Peyton played a role after Kurt left the rehab in LA??

  9. I recently listened to Jessica Hopper's interview in Dublin and the way she reacted is not in line with just grief, it's in line with guilt. I lost two of my best friends to car accidents and years later I'm able to talk about it without getting visibly upset. The fact that the cops didn't interview ANY of the people who had been staying at the Cobain house is pretty ridiculous considering what a high profile case this was. I can only hope that the truth will be revealed some day while we're still all here to find out.

  10. The way I see it, Courtney Love is the real Catherine Tramell and Catherine Tramell is a psychopath. Similarities are amazing: San Francisco, the drugs, the killing of a rock star, the hiding, the arrogance, the sex ...

  11. i dunno how i fell down this rabbit hole, but i feel compelled to share this: as someone who hung out with and actually knew hopper in the years preceding kobain's death, i can say, unequivocally, that if hopper had found his body, she would have absolutely phoned the police...then 2 seconds later phoned the press. furthermore, she would have forever capitalized off her discovery, likely authoring a book entitled "I Found His Body: The Last Days of Kurt Kobain's Life Starring Jessica Hopper." without a single shred of doubt in my mind, i can comfortably sit here and assume that she had absolutely nothing to do with any cover up. she's just not capable of surreptitious behavior

    1. Did she ever talk about anything she seen while staying at his house that week he died ? Or any Cali may have said to her ..
