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!!!
