The Death Of a Friend/Foe

Posted by mikenopolis on June 4, 2010

Today I found out that an old friend, later foe, later somewhat of a friend of mine was killed a few days ago, more specifically he was stabbed multiple times with a samurai sword that was used as a prop on the set of the porn studio he worked at.

I met Herbert in 5th grade when I moved from Denver, Colorado to Los Angeles California. He, along with another kid (Soloman Chan) were my first friends in a new state. Herbert and I hung out at and out of school, went to the same high school and later on even same college, He had help me though some hard time when I was younger, let me crash at his place when I had nowhere to go, even let me borrow his prized Acura Integra when I needed it. There was a “falling out” (read bottom of post) and we stopped talking. Although I understand he may have had reasons for his deception. I hated him for a while because I would’ve totally help him if he had just asked…Later on, I decided to let bygones be bygones.

Even at the heat of the moment when I hated him and wanted him to be put away for life, I would not have wished this upon him. This is a horrible way to die, I cut my finger and I’m crying like a little biatch for days when I get it wet. Being stabbed with a sword?!?! and I was told that he died at the hospital, that is too much pain for too long.

R.I.P. Old friend.

Man killed in machete attack at porn facility is identified
June 3, 2010 | 12:11 pm

A porn actor who authorities say was killed by a machete-wielding colleague has been identified as 30-year-old Herbert Hin Wong, sources familiar with the investigation said Thursday.

A native of China, Wong acted in adult films under the name “Tom Dong” and even appeared with Hill in several films. Police investigators said the 30-year-old Van Nuys resident was mortally wounded after coming to the aid of a co-worker who was attacked Tuesday night at the offices of a Van Nuys video production facility.

Stephen Hill, 30, has been identified as the suspect in the incident, in which three people were stabbed, authorities said.

Wong was described by industry colleagues as a gentle, soft-spoken man. He appeared with Hill, who acted under the name “Steve Driver,” in at least two films, according to one of the companies that employed the men.

Law enforcement officials continue to search for Hill and say they are unsure whether he is nearby or has left the area. Hill could be armed, authorities said, and anyone who sees him is urged to call the police immediately.

Hill was last seen driving a blue Toyota RAV4 from the facility Tuesday night, police said. The license plate number is 5YTC423.

This is from one of my post about him from years ago regarding his actions when we were sophomores in college living together”

“Year 2 (HERBERT): I lived with a friend I’ve known since the 5th grade. to make the story short, he robbed me and the other roommate, my new computer was stolen and the other roommate had her 42″ TV stolen…how did we find out it was him? a.) nothing in his room was taken, not even his laptop! b.) the house was not “broken” into, he probably just walked in through the front door. The window screen was slashed open making it look like the thief went through the kitchen window, but the thin layer of dust on the counter that the thief would have to step on was untouched c.)we confronted him, he was scared but never denied it, just said “I don’t know what you are talking about d.) the other roommate heard him on the phone late at night telling someone “they know it was me…what should I do?” e.) he cleared out his room and moved out the next day…..hmmmm I wonder who did it!?”
