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 fianc√© a "problem" and [planned] to kill him. the intruder wrote my fianc√©‚??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 fianc√©‚?? and potentially me once we returned home from vacation.I hope this puts into perspective the seriousness of this incident.
