It appears that Kurt Cobain, Nirvana’s former lead singer, can’t rest in peace! Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, said his ashes were stolen from her apartment. The incident has shocked the singer’s relatives and friends. Various Internet sites have already posted ads selling his remains.

British newspaper The Guardian reported that Courtney Love claimed a thief broke into her apartment in Los Angeles, CA, and took the ashes, which she kept in a pink bear-shaped bag along with a strand of his hair. Love said the thief had also taken thousands of dollars, clothing and jewelry from her home.

“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,” Cobain’s widow said, adding that the incident had made her suicidal.

Cobain was found dead after shooting himself in the head with a shotgun in April of 2004 in his apartment in Seattle, WA. The singer was only 27 years old.
