El Duce.....Murder or Accident??

El Duce aka Eldon Hoke was the drummer/singer of the band “The Mentors”, which he formed while in high school with classmates Steve Brody and Eric Carlson. In 1994, after the su***de of Kurt Cobain, El Duce started to make claims that Courtney Love offered him $50K to “whack” Kurt. He was going all over the media stations with this story, including Nick Broomfield’s documentary “Kurt & Courtney”. He also stated that he knew who killed Kurt Cobain and that it was someone named “Allen” and some speculated that it was a member from the band “Kill Allen Wrench”.

In 1996, El Duce passed a lie detector test stating that he was in fact telling the truth about the offer Courtney had made him. On April 19th 1997, 8 days after he filmed his interview with Nick Broomfield, El Duce was found DECAPITATED in an accident after being hit by a freight train. Fans of Kurt Cobain and El Duce have said he was purposely killed due to the statements he has been making about Courtney. His death was ruled by the coroner as “Misadventure”.

So was it MURDER or an accident.....you decide!!!

Crime Facts: Richard Ramirez tried to escape...TWICE.

In 1993, Richard Ramirez was on his way back to prison when a corrections officer scanned him with a metal detector which started to go off around his buttocks. He was given an x-ray and it was discovered that he had a handcuff key, ballpoint pen, a syringe, and a sticker that said “I Luv Chocolate” inside of his re**um. He was planning to fake an illness so that he could be taken to the outside hospital, where he would attempt his escape and go after the 2 cops that would be watching him.

2nd attempt years later, Ramirez received a bizarre letter from an obsessed groupie which was intercepted by prison employees, that plotted to bust him out. Ramirez and his groupie were never charged due to lack of evidence.

Serial Killer Paul Michael Stephani aka the Weepy Voiced Killer would anonymously contact the police to report his crimes in a very remorseful and high pitched tone.

In 1997, after being diagnosed with skin cancer he was told he had 1 year to live and confessed to all his violent crimes which was a beating attack in 1980, stabbing Kimberly Compton to death in 1981, drowning Kathleen Greening, stabbing to death Barbara Simons, and Denise Williams in 1982.

In the year 1996, Chicago news anchor Bill Kurtis received an anonymous video tape of serial killer Richard Speck, who appeared on screen in silk underwear, doing a large amount of co***ne, and performing oral s*x on another inmate.

During the taping he looked to the camera and said “If they only knew how much fun I was having in here, they would turn me loose.”

According to other inmate’s, it was said that in order to survive Speck spent the remainder of his life in prison being a male pr******te to other inmates.
