Punk Bass Player Dies

SEATTLE, Washington -- The bass player of Courtney Love's punk-rock band Hole was found dead in a bathtub Thursday, two months after the rock singer's husband Kurt Cobain committed suicide, officials said. The nude body of Kristen Pfaff, 24, was found at about 9:30 A.M. by Paul Erickson, who had spent the night at her Seattle house, an investigator in the King County Medical Examiner's Office said. The investigator, Don Marvin, said the cause of death would not be known until after an autopsy is performed Friday, but he said there is no indication of foul play. Cobain, 27, lead singer of the popular grunge rock band Nirvana, killed himself with a shotgun April 5.
