Porn Actor Suspected in Killing Dies after Leap

LOS ANGELES – A porn actor suspected of killing a colleague with a prop sword has died after jumping from a rocky hillside after a standoff with police.

Police Officer Bruce Borihanh says a “less than lethal munition” was used against Stephen Clancy Hill Saturday just before his jump.

SWAT officers spent part of the afternoon trying to talk Hill down from the hill as he clutched a sword. Borihanh says the 34-year-old actor fell some 40 feet.

Hill fled to the Chatsworth neighborhood hillside after leaving a house where he was barricaded for most of Saturday. He faced murder and attempted murder charges in Tuesday’s attack at a DVD production center.

Hill, 34, whose professional name is Steve Driver, had fled in an SUV. A warrant was issued for his arrest.

The charges were filed Friday after Eric Jover, who runs the Ultima DVD production house, offered a $2,000 reward on the company’s website for information leading to the arrest of Hill.

Hill went on the rampage after being told he was being fired and would have to move out of the production facility where he had been living, authorities said.
