PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — At least two suspects entered the home of a Paradise Valley man the night before he was found murdered seven months ago, police said Tuesday.
Paradise Valley police also announced that the reward for helpful information in the case has been raised to $10,000 as authorities try to solve the April 28 death of Michael Gilman, 68, who was stabbed about 50 times inside his home in a gated community.
Gilman's personal assistant found his body and reported the crime to police.
Two suspects who entered his home stole Gilman's vehicle after killing him, and the vehicle later was set on fire, police said.
Detectives discovered footage from speed-enforcement cameras that shows Gilman's vehicle traveling north on Scottsdale Road before heading east on Shea Boulevard, police spokesman Kevin Albert said.
Gilman's vehicle was closely followed by another vehicle that police believe belongs to the second person involved in the crime, Albert said.
Neighbors living in Gilman's gated community said the former businessman largely kept to himself and reportedly split his time between Los Angeles and Phoenix.
State records show Gilman was president and CEO of two firms in the 1990s: United Capital Planners Inc. in Scottsdale and United Arizona Holdings Corp. Both are no longer in practice.

Recently, I got the chance to talk with Dan Stevens of “The Guest.”
Between “No Good Deed” and “The Guest,” September is really shaping up to be the month of home invasion/sleeping with the enemy movies. What makes “The Guest” much more interesting that other film, however, is that it’s not entirely clear if the home invader wants to be the homeowner’s friend or enemy. At some point in our lives, we’ve all had somebody we’ve wanted to get rid of, be it a school bully, sleazy boyfriend or boss. You might wish for a dark guardian angel to come to your rescue and take care of the person ruining your life. In the event that dark guardian actually did appear, though, would you be more relieved or horrified? On top of that, would you call the cops on this guy or let him do your dirty work?
It's disheartening to see the grifters, opportunists and race-baiters once again grab the chance to stir up racial animosity. We've seen Ferguson before. It's another setback to those sincerely striving for racial harmony.

And it’s no coincidence this will happen in time for them to vote in the mid-terms this November. Gee, I wonder if they’ll vote Democrat.”
“Mesa Mayor Scott Smith praised the investigation as an example of a Mesa police philosophy that targets career criminals who are responsible most crimes. He said crime in Mesa is down to a 40-year low and that street level drug sales are down 19 percent.”
Mesa police have identified a man and woman who died in a car in a school parking lot as a result of what's being called a homicide/suicide.
