Image Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, recently had her home broken into, and is contradicting police reports, saying that the intruder, 22-year old Marc James Franco, was "a rabid Nirvana fan" who had plans to kill her fiancee. Cobain started a Twitter account, where she posted a statement regarding the incident, writing:

firstly, he is not a homeless man. he is a rabid nirvana fan whose deep seeded[sic] obsession w/ kurt not only convinced him to break into my home, but we later found out that he considers my fiancee a "problem" and [planned] to kill him. the intruder wrote my fiancee first & last name out in his journal with the words "Kill" circled and pointing to his name.

Initial police reports say that Franco was discovered in the house doing laundry by a friend who was house sitting.


I've started this twitter for one reason, because the police aren't doing their jobs&have released inaccurate information about the intruder who entered my home.

firstly, he is not a homeless man. he is a rabid nirvana fan whose deep seeded obsession w/ kurt not only convinced him to break into my home, but we later found out that he considers my fiancé a "problem" and [planned] to kill him. the intruder wrote my fiancé's first & last name out in his journal with the words "Kill" circled and pointing to his name.

i figure releasing this information directly to the public will garner media attention & hopefully will mean that this bastard fucker won't have the opportunity to be released from jail & can't hurt those i love because of his obsession with someone i'm related to.

this situation is far more serious than a "transient" wandering into my home & eating my food. he was lying in wait and had the intention to kill my fiancé' and potentially me once we returned home from vacation.I hope this puts into perspective the seriousness of this incident.
