You've specifically tried kill -9 ? That just doesn't make sense,
I have never seen a process in a "S" state that did not die as
a result of a kill -9. "D" state yes, "Z" state yes, "T" state maybe,
but never ever "S" (or any variant of S).

kill and kill -9 are not the same thing(sorry if it's obvious I
don't know your level of expertise).
