According to the Associated Press, the operators of the towers said that the building’s security hadn’t been breached and it appears to have been a domestic dispute between Gustafik and his wife Jill Rockcastle. Rockcastle was found Monday unconscious in a motel room in San Luis Obispo and is now in custody.
Of note, Gustafik speaks about his wife on several occasions in his PokerPages profile, saying he is a “devoted husband,” and that “[w]ith my beautiful wife by my side and my 9 yr old daughter giving me tips, nothing can stop me.” He also states that if “I could change anything in the world: My wife would play live and not just online even though she wins.”
We assume he’d also like for her not to kill him.*
* Wicked Chops Poker strongly believes that people should be presumed innocent until proven guilty, unless they look really crazy.
UPDATE: Jill Rockinsale is facing murder charges for the fatal stabbing of her husband Bill Gustafik. She was immediately a suspect after the stabbing and the police were hoping to speak with her but she fled to California, checked herself into a B&B and it looked like she was preparing to check herself out of life when the police came upon her. Rockinsale is not the mother of Gustafik’s 9-year-old daughter, thankfully. Read the most recent news story here.
