Ayres had a hearing yesterday to ask that he be let out of Napa State Hospital. In the six months he has been at the hospital he has grown a long scraggly Howard Hughes beard- in an attempt to look crazy and out of it.

The Mercury News has a story about Ayres' son and daughter writing letters asking that Ayres be let out.

And the victim who runs the Ayres blog has a response to that. Warning: graphic descriptions of abuse in the Ayres blog.
