Morgan Hill paper gets calls about porn king

In Morgan Hill, a town of about 33,000 some 30 minutes south of San Jose, the local paper has been getting a lot of calls lately from people in the adult film industry after it broke the story on the death of porn king, Inkyo Volt Hwang, better known as Wanker Wang. On Sept. 29, Hwang's body was found in a room at the Economy Inn on Monterey Road after the manager was unable to get a response from him. The initial story in the Morgan Hill Times on Oct. 2 didn't identify Hwang. But when the follow up story appeared a week later, which linked Hwang, 38, to the death of his girlfriend in King City, "the adult entertainment industry woke up, [and] speculation [began] flying fast and furious around the community," Times reporter Marily Dubil wrote.
    "The Times received many calls from porn directors, producers and industry talent in the days following the second story, including a call from the 'Hollywood Insider' to verify the lurid details."
Here's the Times' story that's got the XXX industry buzzing. It's quite a departure from the normal fare served up by community weeklies, such as school board meeting reports, police blotter, Rotary Club annuncements and the like.
