A 30-year-old porn actor rumored to go by the name “Steve Driver” is said to have attacked three of his co-workers with a “machete-style weapon,” killing one and injuring two others.
Porn fans on Twitter have been tweeting and re-tweeting a picture of the alleged assailant (real name Steven Hill) who is said to have been facing the loss of his job and eviction from the work premises where he reportedly lived.
Los Angeles Police Department Det. Joel Price said Hill was both working and living at the offices of Ultima DVD Inc.
Price said Hill did production work and acted in several porn movies. But on the night of the attack, he apparently faced the loss of his job and eviction from the office.
A fan blog posted an alert, and Twitter users say the dead co-worker is fellow porn actor Tom Dong:
This is Steve Driver real name Steve Hill. Steve Driver was the name used in porn scenes. Hill was mostly in fetish vids where he was dominated/abused by women. Hill is suspected of grabbing a machete that was used as a prop, stabbing a fellow Ultima Studios (Ballbustingpornstars.com) employee. Two other employees, one being Tom Dong, came to rescue and Tom was stabbed to death. Tom Dong was also a performer in similar videos. Both Tom & Hill were living at the studio.
Hill reportedly fled the scene in a 1996 blue Toyota RAV4 with California license plate 5YTC423.
