Bloody Business

"He arrived at the UCSD Medical Center having lost one-third of his blood from 15 knife wounds to his head, neck, face, arms, and torso," says Lourdes Ayon Jimenez. Her brother, musician Fernando Ayon, was attacked on July 30 as he walked from his car to the door of his Chula Vista home.

"His left arm was severely wounded, with deep lacerations that cut through eight tendons in his forearm," says Jimenez. "Luckily, he was able to call 911 on his cell phone."

Ayon recently gave up his career as a building contractor in the family business to become a music producer; he's founded the H2K Productions record label and produced the song "Pretty Girl" by NB Ridaz. His attacker hasn't been caught, though Ayon says he believes it was an ex-client who stole music produced by Ayon and sold it to rappers in other cities.

Ayon has lost all feeling in the left side of his face and use of his left arm remains limited. Physical therapy is ongoing.

"He wasn't financially prepared to deal with this tragedy," says Ayon's sister. The father of three children (aged two, six, and eight) lost his home due to $70,000 in medical expenses. The family is sleeping on couches at a relative's.

A benefit concert to raise money for the Ayons is scheduled for Sunday, October 16, at the Southwestern College Gym beginning at 2 p.m. Performers include NB Ridaz, Yukmouth, Los Alacranes, Pearl, and Boogie the Big Man. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Crime Victims Fund and the Southwestern College Puente Club.
