LAPD West Valley homicide detectives are searching for Stephen Hill, the 34-year-old adult film star and behind-the-scenes worker they believe attacked his co-workers with a sword Tuesday night.In a release issued regarding Hill, the LAPD provide details about the crime that took place inside an adult video production facility:

The initial investigation revealed that the victims and witnesses were socializing inside the closed business at the end of a work day. The suspect, who has been identified as 34-year-old Stephen Clancy Hill of Canoga Park, was also present. Without provocation, Hill became enraged and armed himself with a sword, typically used as a prop, which he then used to attack one victim. Two additional victims attempted to assist the first victim and they became the focus of the attack. One of these victims sustained the fatal wound. Three witnesses, who were also present inside the business, ran from the location.

Hill, who performs under the name "Steve Driver," was observed leaving the crime scene in a blue 1998 Toyota RAV 4 with a California license plate of 5YTC423. Just a few weeks prior to the stabbings an email was circulated within the adult entertainment community regarding Hill's past, his likely instability, and his proclivity for brandishing weapons.
