Dear ,

Good morning Joe,

We have a lot of the documents from the Cobain investigation available here: http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2014/03/31/detectives-reviews-cobain-case-which-remains-closed/ (http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2014/03/31/detectives-reviews-cobain-case-which-remains-closed/)

That link is to the SPD Blotter which has an update on the case from 3/15/16, and near the bottom of the page there are links to 4 PDFs and 1 Zip file which have documents from the case. We are in the process of double checking to see if there are any releasable documents that are not included in those PDFs and files.

If this link satisfies your request, please let me know and I will close it out.

Thank you,
Tara
