WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Male Performer Damien Michaels, a veteran of more than 200 adult movies, was found stabbed to death in a Comfort Inn motel room Tuesday morning.

According to FOX 11 News report, a woman frantically asked for a cell phone from an occupant of a neighboring room to call 911 after discovering “broken glass and blood” at Michaels’ room.

Michaels, 53, suffered numerous puncture wounds to his body a police source told MyFoxLA.com.

“He’s one of the oldest guys in the business, been around a long time,” producer Rob Spallone told FOX 11 News. But Spallone isn’t surprised to see Michaels dead because “he got hooked on the crystal meth and the crack and that was the end of it. Always looking to scam and scheme and do something.”

According to IAFD.com, Michaels began performing in 1994 and has appeared in 200-plus scenes mostly for smaller and specialty production studios including Heatwave, Nitro, Zane, Filmco, Coast to Coast, Avalon and Channel 69.

From 1998-2000 he directed the “Girl’s Affair” series for Fat Dog.

According to sources that spoke to FOX 11, in recent years Michaels took on the role of a street agent, recruiting civilian girls into the industry from “bus stops, to supermarkets, as anyone in the industry knows that’s what I best at,” Michaels said in a video posted on YouTube.com.

Police have made no arrests yet in connection with Michaels' murder.

Below is a clip from the FOX 11 News report.
