Fourteen Years Ago This Year...


It was a Friday, April 8th, and after a long week I was sitting down to watch some TV and opened the TV Guide.  I had listened intently to the tragic news all day about Kurt, and was really surprised when I sat down and opened the TV Guide at 7:00 pm that night to find the following....

On the day the body of Kurt Cobain was found, this was the TV guide, for Friday, April 8, 1994, from the Madison, Wisconsin daily paper (more photos below).  Although this was in the Madison paper and effective for the Madison area, this was a nationally syndicated show and so it was the same for virtually every city in the United States that night.  Notice the name of the show for that day at 7:00 p.m., "Diagnosis Murder: Nirvana."  Bizarre coincidence. I saw this and was so struck by it that I saved the entire TV guide for 4 years, which was when I first heard that Kurt may have been murdered. I located the TV guide and took pictures of it. 

Where is the blood?  Most head wounds bleed excessively.





Kurt's death troubled me, particularly after hearing he had just overdosed in Europe 3 weeks earlier.  When I heard a few years later on the Unsolved Mysteries TV show that some individuals were investigating the possibility of murder vs. suicide, I searched on the Internet and found several sites addressing this theory. I e-mailed the photos to one of the website authors who responded back immediately. Notice on the description page in the photo below the prior days city council meeting was being broadcast (Dane County Board of Supervisors, channel 12) and the date shown was April 7, 1994. (This is shown to clarify the exact date and year of the TV guide.)  I also checked on 5-19-2003 to see if the airing of this episode was a repeat or if it was the original showing of this episode. As you will see at bottom of the page, this was the original airing of this episode, during the first season, and it was the 15th show.  To date over 68 youth have reportedly committed suicide as a direct result of Kurt Cobain's death, which makes it even more important that the truth about Kurt be told.  Want to see all of the facts that indicate Kurt was most likely murdered?  Once done with the information on this page, at the bottom it is a link to Investigator Tom Grant's site dealing with all relevant facts.  He was the investigator hired by Courtney Love to find Kurt.  He later came to believe that he was only hired to find Kurt by Courtney to cover herself, provide an alibi and make herself look as good as possible.  The link to Tom Grants site is toward the bottom of this page.

As of April 8, 2004, 68 young people to date have committed suicide with some sort of reference to Kurt.

Wonder why Courtney felt the need to practice her handwriting skills right around the time of Kurts death?

Also-yes-April 8, 1994 is the exact date Kurt Cobain's body was discovered.


Information on "El Duce" — passed a lie detector test stating that Courtney Love tried to hire him to Kill Kurt.

Singer of an L.A. punk band called "The Mentors". Claims Courtney offered him $50,000 to kill Kurt in December 1993. Hoke was administered a polygraph test by Dr. Edward Gelb, who one of the country's leading polygraph experts. Hoke passed with 99.7% certainty that he was telling the truth. Found dead on April 19, 1997 after friends say he went for a walk with someone they've never seen before.

Eldon Hoke, also know as El Duce, a fixture on the Los Angeles Entertainment scene for the last 20 years was killed Saturday evening, April 19, in Riverside, CA.   His death was the result of being hit by a train in a state of alcoholic intoxication.

Mr. Hoke was best known as the drummer and lead singer of the rock group the Mentors.

Recently Mr. Hoke had appeared on the Jerry Springer Show in a show devoted to Shock Rock, and in the National Enquirer and other tabloids domestically and internationally regarding his claim that he was approached by Courtney Love to kill Kurt Cobain.

The last musical performance by Mr. Hoke was given on Friday, April 18th, 1997, at Al's Bar in Downtown Los Angeles.

About a week after El Duce's interview with Broomfield, on April 19, 1997 El Duce was killed by a train in Riverside, L.A. The events surrounding his death are murky.

Rather like the events surrounding Kurt's death.

Wallace and Halperin report that at 5pm Duce arrived at his house with a man he said he had just met. After a while they left the house to go to the liquor store saying that they would be back shortly. They never returned. At 9pm Duce was hit by a train and died instantly. There were no witnesses. Police were unable to locate the man seen with Duce that afternoon.

Music journalist and friend of Duce, Al Bowman said: "There is something very, very strange about his death. Anybody who knew El knew that you could make friends with him by offering to buy him a drink. He had a problem with alcohol." When asked if he thought El Duce was suicidal he replied: “No way. He was all exited about his upcoming tour. He was in good spirits. He didn't kill himself. I'm convinced this has something to do with Kurt Cobain."

Note: Notice the extreme difference in the handwriting between the first 3/4's of the letter and the last 3 to 4 lines. It is so obviously different from the majority of the letter.  Some suggest that the difference was due to a large dose of heroin being administered or taken during the course of writing the note, but the dose in Kurt was many times more than a lethal dose and most believe he would have been completely incapacitated immediately after the infection, and thus unable to continue writing and certainly unable to complete a letter and then handle a firearm.

Important Note:  March 26, 2004 - Man confesses to killing girlfriend after viewing the movie "The Passion of the Christ." He had made it look like a suicide and the police and even the medical examiner ruled it a suicide, until he walked into the police station a month or so later and confessed after viewing this movie. Maybe there is hope that whomever killed Kurt will still confess?  (Hopefully Courtney will see it!)

To follow is the photograph circulating on the Internet that is supposedly Kurt Cobain during the autopsy. This is not Kurt Cobain. The weapon used to kill Kurt was a 20-gauge Remington shotgun, which was placed in his mouth. The photo below is of someone hit with a larger caliber weapon, and most likely fired from the back of the head or from a distance from the front of the head, as the damage is much too extensive. It is gory, but you can click on the photo to see an enlarged version. Additionally, this individual appears to have intravenous needles inserted them, which would not have been the case with Kurt, having been found several days after he actually left us.

Kurt, Age 5




February 15, 1997

On Friday, February 7, NBC aired a segment about this case on their prime-time show, Unsolved Mysteries.

Unsolved Mysteries provided a solid introduction to some of the main inconsistencies of this case. Television is an extremely powerful medium, and the aid that this TV show can provide in getting this case to trial is formidable. The segment was labeled an "Unexplained Death," and presented the information with the seriousness and care that it deserves.

The segment focused on four issues: 1- the illegal credit card use, 2 - the lethal dose of heroin (morphine) and Valium (diazepam) found in Kurt's body, and whether or not he would have been able to handle a shotgun, 3 - the lack of any legible prints on the shells, the shotgun and the pen used to write the "suicide" note, and 4 - the forged section of the note.

Tom Grant did a first-rate job discussing the evidence. He was relaxed, articulate, and passionate but composed. By contrast, Sean O'Donnell, the Media Relations Representative for the Seattle Police Department, addressed the aforementioned issues very poorly. Nervously delivering what were obviously scripted responses, he was uncomfortable, condescending and evasive. In rebuttal to the fingerprint problem, he had only this to say:

"Well, anyone who is familiar with firearms and their use would know that as they hold a weapon, that frequently that weapon will move in their hands. Additionally, when that weapon is discharged, that causes a jerking motion, which causes the hands to move over the surface of the weapon, and all of those factors [he has mentioned only one] could cause any fingerprints that may have been left on the weapon to be unusable."

It might seem, analyzing his response phrase by phrase, that I'm being picayune or pedantic. However, do not forget that this man has received extensive training, and probably makes a rather good living, in leading people to believe his comments have weight when they do not. His expertise lies in making an impressive, authoritative representation on behalf of the Seattle Police Department, regardless of the truth, or lack of truth, of what he has been asked to say. Unlike rebuttals to issues in other segments on Unsolved Mysteries, the SPD did not use an officer involved in the actual investigation to respond, but rather, their best PR man.

Considering that Kurt was extremely high on heroin, if not incapacitated, and that he was not formally trained in handling firearms, if he had committed suicide one would have expected his fingerprints to be all over the shotgun. Granted, the prints exactly where his hands were purported to be when the shot was fired might have been smudged by the kick of the gun, but he supposedly carried the gun into the room that day and had handled it extensively from the time he purchased it to just before allegedly pointing it at himself and pulling the trigger. Furthermore, the above comment does not even address the absence of fingerprints on the shells, or on the pen. Omission was generally his manner of response. In regards to the forgery of the note, the show provided no less than two handwriting experts. However, the SPD rep did not or could not address the 12 inconsistencies they had found. He cited only that the King County handwriting expert believed the note was written entirely by Kurt. Apparently he did not believe these major inconsistencies warranted comment. As I've pointed out, it does not require any expertise in the field of handwriting analysis to see, after a few minutes' scrutiny, that the printing in the last four lines does not come close to matching the handwriting of the body of the note. I invite the reader to examine a copy of the note (examples above) and decide for him- or herself.

Lastly, following Grant's hypothesis of the murder, which began the segment, the SPD rep commented:

"Our detectives actually went into this investigation on the premise that this was a homicide. That's the way they conducted this investigation. So there was a very thorough, comprehensive investigation done from the beginning and everything that the detectives encountered indicated to them that this was a suicide."

TV Guide Description for Unsolved Mysteries episode that night—"Reports include one man's crusade to reinvestigate the 1994 death of rock star Kurt Cobain. Also: a controversial medical diagnosis--by a dog; a 1975 shootout at a furniture store; and a 1995 missing-persons case."
