El Duce

El Duce

Real/full name:
Eldon Wayne Hoke
39 (born Mar 23rd, 1958)
Apr 19th, 1997
Died of:
Hit by a train
Place of origin:
United States (Seattle, Washington)


On Saturday evening, April 19, 1997 El Duce was killed. His death was officially ruled as the result of being hit by a train in a state of alcoholic intoxication. It was about a week after Nick Broomfield's interview with Eldon where he claimed to be hired to kill Kurt Cobain, and as such, conspiracy surrounds his death.


He also has released his own karaoke albums as well as a dirty Christmas album.

He regularly claimed that Courtney Love tried to hire him to kill Kurt Cobain for fifty thousand dollars and make it look like a suicide. Hoke passed a polygraph test, and the owner of the record shop during which the supposed conversation took place corroborated with Hoke's account.
