Tom Grant (private investigator)


Tom Grant (private investigator)

Tom Grant is a private investigator known for his involvement in high-profile cases involving celebrity clients. Grant owns and operates his own detective agency, The Grant Company.

Grant joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in 1969 and within a few years was promoted to Detective. In 1975, Grant left the Sheriff's department and went into business as a security consultant. He later obtained his private investigator's license and opened an office in Beverly Hills, California where he specialized in criminal investigations. Grant's client list includes some of Hollywood's biggest names.The Grant Company, " [http://www.thegrantco.com/tgbkgrnd.htm Tom Grant - Background Information] ", Accessed on November 29, 2007.]

Grant gained notoriety in late 1994 when he claimed that rock musician Kurt Cobain, lead singer of the popular band Nirvana, had not committed suicide, as was the official police conclusion, but had, in fact, been murdered. [ Curt Rowlett, "Labyrinth13: True Tales of the Occult", Crime & Conspiracy, 2006, Lulu.com, ISBN 1411660838, p. 166]

Grant's interest in Cobain's death has resulted in considerable media coverage; Grant has appeared on the television program "Unsolved Mysteries", Nick Broomfield's documentary film "Kurt and Courtney", and the NBC program Dateline NBC. Grant also appeared on "The Tom Leykis Show", a Los Angeles-based syndicated radio talk show that had generated a large listening audience in Seattle; within days of the appearance, however, Leykis' syndicator, Westwood One, inserted retractions of Grant's claims into a subsequent Leykis broadcast. Grant's efforts have also inspired at least two books on the theory but suicide remains the official cause of Cobain's death.

After filing her sexual harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton, Tom Grant was hired by Paula Jones. In November of 1997, Grant traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas where he spent nearly two months attending depositions and assisting Jones and her legal team with the pre-trial investigation of the President.
