She seemed as distraught as anyone would be about the death of her unborn son. My gut feeling is that she couldn't possibly be involved - she just doesn't fit the killer profile and displays outward emotion when asked about the incident.

Biography

Early Life

Jill Tuck was a doctor who ran a free recovery clinic for drug addicts. She was the wife of John Kramer, a successful civil engineer and founder of Gideon, a foundation dedicated to property development for needy people. Their life took a happy turn when Jill got pregnant by him. John, who had already meticulously planned that their son should be born during the Chinese Year of the Pig, also gave him his name, Gideon, inspired by his company. Despite their happiness, John soon started to worry about Jill's safety, who continued to work at the clinic even during her pregnancy. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Family Tragedy

One night, Cecil Adams, one of Jill's patients, tried to rob her. He threatened Jill with a pair of scissors, forcing her to open the door to the clinic. After she obeyed his order, Cecil told her to stand back. He quickly stole the medications and then ran back. Thereby, he accidentally slammed a doorknob into Jill's stomach. As she saw the blood on her skirt, she slumped down and started to cry. Cecil tried to calm her down and asked her what happened. However, when he realized what he had done, he quickly fled and left Jill behind. Due to her injuries, Jill ultimately lost her unborn child. After Gideon's death, John suffered from severe depression, which eventually caused him to withdraw from his wife and the company. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Cecil Adams' Death

Shortly afterward, John's physical condition worsened. When he went to a hospital, the oncologist Dr. Lawrence Gordon diagnosed him with a frontal lobe tumor. When telling him about his diagnosis, Gordon clarified he wasn't expecting his patient to survive. Thereby, John realized that he had only learned to cherish his life when his death had been imminent. Because of this, he chose to spend the remaining time of his life on testing other people's will to live, hoping that this would convince them to value their lives and the lives of those around them. However, his newly discovered will to live couldn't bind him and Jill together again. At this time, John began to focus on other people's lives and chose Cecil Adams as his first test subject. During this test, Cecil died of blood loss after falling into a cage filled with razor wire.

Sometime later, David Tapp, a homicide detective who worked for the Metropolitan Police Department, visited Jill Tuck in her apartment to ask her about the incident at the free clinic. Although she was still distraught by the loss of her unborn son, she answered his questions and even revealed to him that she had planned to call her child Gideon. When Tapp asked her about the father, Jill told him that it was John Kramer. Due to her emotional state and her willingness to cooperate with the detective, Tapp immediately doubted that she was Cecil's killer. These doubts were confirmed when her alibi for the time of another murder committed by Jigsaw proved to be accurate, as she had worked at the free clinic that night. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)
