Cobain Murder theorist have made the claim, that only MS Love had motive to kill her husband Kurt Cobain. This points to their obsession to get Ms Love, and the hell with reality.
In this section, I will point out that there are numerous people who may have wanted to kill Kurt. It's not my intent in this section to point the finger at anyone. It merely shows that if you believe in the murder of Kurt Cobain, you have to look beyond Courtney only.
Much has been said about Kurt being in fear of his life, and purchasing a shotgun. Kurt could have purchased a shotgun to protect himself against stalkers. Stalking isn't far from any celebrity mind.

The far rights violent tendency
Who could have the resources to pull a murder conspiracy off? Right wing extremist might have connections in law enforcement . The far right had the hate and the training or connections to kill Kurt.
Anyone who read anything about Kurt Cobain's life knows he was anti-authoritarian. His stand against the far right was well known. From abortion to gay rights his speech was inflammatory.
Kurt said "God is Gay"
Another example is the liner notes from Nirvana "Incestcide" it attacks racists, homophobia, and women haters.
How would many in the far right Christian extremist camp view these statements?
Anti Rock Christian Bob Larson seemed to gloat over Kurts death.
Threats became so serious that during a Seattle anti censorship benefit concert. A threat was made Kurt would be shot the second he step on to the stage. The threat was taken seriously and they set up metal detectors for the concert.(7)
This first link, is to a church that is known for picking funerals of people who have died of AIDS*. They also picked the funeral of Matthew Shepard.

What do many right wing extremist do to their enemies?? Consider the following.
In the war against legal abortions clinics have been burned, bombed, abortion providers have been shot. To be fair, such violence is not acceptable to many leaders in the right to life movement.
David O'Steen, Executive Director of "National Right to Life," criticized the violence saying ``It is wrong,'' he continued ``To the extent that the discussion is about buildings or bombs, that detracts from the reality of abortion and the violence of abortion,'' . (8)
Rep. Kenny Hulshof, R-Mo., said. "Just as we must call for an end to violence outside those clinics, let us continue to pray for an end to the violence inside those clinics,'' (9)
Still the Violence continues...........
