Who knew one of the world’s biggest Courtney Love conspiracy theorists was Love’s own father? According to Radar (via The Daily Mail), Love’s estranged father — ex-Grateful Dead manager Hank Harrison — believes she was closely involved with Kurt Cobain’s death and intends to prove it when he republishes his book Love Kills: The Assassination Of Kurt Cobain. “No doubt she was capable,” Harrison told Radar. “I can’t prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty.”
Harrison claims he became 100 percent certain that Love was involved with Cobain’s death earlier this week when the Seattle police shared a note from Cobain’s wallet that contained disparaging remarks about Love. Although many have speculated that the note, which refers to Love as a “bitch with zits” among other jabs, could easily have been an inside joke between Cobain and Love, Harrison says it is a crucial piece of evidence against his daughter: “If you read the true meaning of this small note, and place it in conjunction with the rest of the evidence, anyone with even half a wit will see that something dire and awful took place.” He’s also suspicious of the Seattle PD’s motives for releasing so much evidence 20 years later: “Nobody, except me, asked the obvious question: ’Why weren’t they developed 20 years ago?’ They weren’t developed because the police had already decided it was a suicide and didn’t need any more evidence.”
