Seaside Cop Stabbing Case Leads To Search Warrants

Search warrants on the cop.

Investigators said they have narrowed the case down to three possible scenarios to answer what happened on July 31:

“1. Gill was stabbed as he reported. 2. Gill was stabbed by someone he knows and does not want to say what happened because it might damage his career. 3. Gill injured himself.”

The night of the stabbing, officers asked Gill if he had any enemies who would want to hurt him. Gill replied that he had slept with fellow Seaside police officers’ wives, had affairs with married women, and dated 911 dispatchers, the warrant stated.

“During the course of a year, Gill said he might date 30 to 40 women,” the warrant stated

District Attorney investigators seized Gill’s cell phones and computer to look for emails, text messages and other communications from women Gill dated that could help identify a former lover who would be motivated to attack the officer.

Gill told officers that a man banged on his backdoor, stabbed him as soon as he opened the door, and fled in a car driven by a second man.

“Gill was dressed in pajama bottoms, no shirt, and wore a head-mounted flashlight around his head,” the search warrant states. “Gill had a handgun holstered on his right hip and a Seaside PD badge on his left hip. There was a bandage on Gill’s upper left chest.”
