Tonight: Spencer Harris memorial

Original post made on Jul 21, 2011

Tonight the friends and family of Spencer Harris will gather to honor the 74-year-old Menlo Park man who died on May 17. According to police reports, Mr. Harris received a 24-hour notice to leave his Roble Avenue apartment six days before shooting himself. Of the three hoarding cases the Menlo Park police department has handled since 2006, only Mr. Harris got a 24-hour notice to vacate the property.

The Almanac report of Mr. Harris's suicide did not say what happened to his hoard when he was evicted from his apartment or what was done by city staff to allay any anxiety he suffered upon separation from his apartment or his belongings.

How about a follow-up story?
