FAYETTEVILLE, TN (WAFF) -

A 68-year-old Fayetteville man, found crawling on the floor of his filth-filled home is in the hospital recovering.

A bail bondsman made the shocking discovery when he went to the home after the man didn't show up for court.

Volunteers began cleaning the mess. After we aired the story, Mike Farrar says he got calls from people across the Tennessee Valley.

Most of them couldn't come because of work, but Farrar says that's ok because there's still a lot of work to do that's going take some time to get done.

Five volunteers scrubbed, wiped and swept just getting this effort started. Farrar says once the surface cleaning is done, the deep cleaning begins. Painters are needed to paint the odor of feces and urine stained walls away.

People with roofing experience are needed because of leaks. Farrar says elderly home care experience are needed because John Allan Rybikci will need daily care once he's released from the hospital.  

Farrar owns Farrar's Bail Bonds and Auto Sales in Fayetteville. He wants people who want to help to call (931) 433-4020.
