The address on the TV Guide is the address for Layne’s condo in the U District where he lived the final years of his life. I found the same issue on Amazon, which has the date as March 30 – April 5, 2002. Based on the address on the issue and the date, this
was probably may have been the last TV Guide he ever read.
Based on the partial details I could read about the condo, some of the details do match with what I’ve read about the property from public records.
The seller has posted what he/she says are Layne’s sunglasses, and as proof posted scans of three photos of what he/she says are “HIS PERFORMING WITH SECOND COMING ARE THE LAST PHOTOS OF HIM PERFORMING.” I’m still checking on the sunglasses and the live photos. Will update this post if I find anything.
Update: First, I forgot to mention in the original post yesterday that the eBay auction has already ended. The entire set sold for $1,800.
Second, Grunge Report has published a photo of Layne at what appears to be a Halloween Party some time in the late 1990s. Check it out here.
Update II: Layne’s mom, Nancy Layne McCallum, wrote the following in the comments section of this post:
This is ghoulish. Layne’s things still belong to him, and should be returned to his estate, where his belongings are lovingly cared for by his family in “his room”.
The items can be returned to PO 63, Mukilteo, WA 98275, no questions asked.
