Then you see something like this jump out at you: Kurt Cobain's ashes stolen.
You read that right. Apparently there was a break-in at Courtney Love's home in Los Angeles. Jewelery, clothes, and the teddy bear that contained the last of his ashes and a lock of his hair were stolen. Courtney was quoted in the article as saying:
"I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me. I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal. If I don't get them back I don't know what I'll do."
"They were all I had left of my husband. I used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."
EDIT: You know, as the days pass and nothing more has been said about this story on any other news source, I'm leaning toward this being just another stunt by batsh*t crazy Courtney.
