    Some insight into his life here. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/reagan/peopleevents/p...

    At his criminal trial, Hinckley presented evidence that he was suffering from a mental disease and that his criminal actions were the result of that disease. On June 21, 1982, the jury found Hinckley not guilty by reason of insanity. The district court then committed Hinckley to St. Elizabeth's Hospital, where he has remained to this day.

    He has not been released fully yet, but he is allowed visits outside the hospital.

    He's still up under the high-priced psych ward, but his parents are rich - so now he gets weekend and holiday visits with his parents. He is definately alive and kicking.

    he is alive. a fairly recent report showed that he had visitation right to visit his parents on passes. if he behaves he will get released before long if he hasn't already. i think his full release would be in the news. i haven't seen that. i think i would have caught that. he must still have a screw loose i think.

    He passed out of Haldol asphyxiation. He didn't know pleading insanity would subject him to chemical warfare at St. Elizabeth's.
