For reasons so far unclear, police in Seattle have released pictures of the gun used by Kurt Cobain to kill himself over 20 years ago.

Detective Mike Ciesynski (below) is seen posing with the gun in five pictures posted to Seattle Police Department's website.

However, it is unclear why they were released to the public now, almost 22 years after the Nirvana front man killed himself in his Seattle home.

The photos were taken in June 2015 and the police have confirmed they have been added to the file on the case.

Cobain was found dead at his home in April 1994 and his death was ruled a suicide.

A review into his death by Detective Ciesynski in 2014 deemed that there was no new information to suggest Cobain's death was anything other than suicide.
