I still believe it was Dixon based on the way he ran his mouth at Eric's funeral.. I have it on tape somewhere... but yeah who knows.. Hopefully someday they can solve it so it can help all of us who knew Eric justice.. I knew him since I was a baby so it aggravates me that they never talk about it or try to do anything to solve it anymore..

ILSE

Neither my cousin nor his other friends had ever heard of Don until after Eric was murdered... and my cousin talked to Eric at least once or twice a week.. Don didnt hang out with any of them.. and according to Don at Eric's funeral.. He did Landscaping for Eric so that is how he got a key.. but see the alarm never went off... and I knew Eric... he would never have left it off.. and Don was the only one who knew the code besides Eric.. he said so himself.. I personally think they should have got a search warrant for his house... but yeah the cops in Hood River blow... My friends mom has been missing for 3 years and they still havent done jack**** in her case either
You taped Eric's funeral?

This is the second time this poster made reference to the idea of another suspect, one presumably not profiled on UM. Who is this person? What was his/her relationship to Eric Tamiyasu? Why is s/he a suspect?

I dont know if its the case with this person, but I believe Don Dixon is on here under another name. That post above that rambles on about Taco Bell lnches and how close Eric and Don were just seems to be something that he wrote.

Also, has it ever been discussed as to how close Don and Eric really were? The other Eric claims that Don was just an acquantance of Eric but Don claims that they were real good friends. Has Eric's family ever touched on this? Also, Dixon claims that the reason he went to Eric's house (when he found the body) is because hew received phone calls from several of Eric's "friends". Have these "friends" been identified?

I find something else a little odd about this. We all seem to agree that at the very least, Don Dixon isn't very genuine and may even be putting himself into the story more than he actually was (i.e. Eric's closest friend and confidant, Taco Bell lunches, etc..). So if Don Dixon wasn't the killer and had nothing to do with the murder, why is he involving himself and pointing the finger at almost everyone when he shouldn't even be that involved to begin with? What I wouldn't give to find out who these "friends of Eric's" are that supposedly called Don asking about Eric, which in turn, made Don go to Eric's house and find his body.

Was it ever determined if Eric was killed while he was asleep? I know he was found dead on the bed but did they determine whether or not he was asleep or if he was even killed in his bedroom?

If there is a case that smells something awful it is this one, and it has always been the case with this one. Sheriff Wampler was either in on it or wanted to cover up. There is no way a competent person such as a police chief would burn potential evidence by accident. I have always thought he was at the very least afraid of finding his wife's DNA on that bed. So that is the LEAST I think he is guilty of. The most I think is him and Dixon being involved in the murder and teaming up to cover it up brilliantly.

I think we can all agree that Eric's date for the evening is being honest. There is no reason for her to lie about anything and if anything her telling what she knows would only piss off the wrong person. So she took a gamble coming forward.

You and I see eye to eye on this one. I personally believe Don Dixon murdered Eric. I have no idea why. Several scenarios have been thrown out there before. But then I also think that Wampler burned the bed to get rid of any and all DNA of his wife that may be in that bed. Think about it, if her DNA is found in the bed, he immediately becomes a suspect, regardless of if he did it.

I don't think there would be any way to determine if someone died in their sleep, directly. Had the bed not been destroyed, there would have been forensic evidence contained thereon re: blood patterns, bullet holes, etc., that could have proven Tamiyasu was killed there (or not).

I'm torn on this one. Don Dixon actions were odd, he was odd, and his actions and the potential discrepancies in his story make him suspicious, but there's was no actual evidence linking him to the murder. He's certainly a suspect, but I think declarations of his guilt are premature, at best.

The Sheriff burning the bed was an inexcusable procedural mistake. There was nothing more to suggest nefarious motives, however. The Sheriff turned over the investigation to the State and the "rumors" re: his wife are only that, unsubstantiated rumors from a dubious source (Dixon).

Personally, it wouldn't surprise me if the killing turned out to be unrelated at all to any of the theories presented in the segment.

If its not Dixon or Wampler, the only other thing I can think of is that maybe it was a crazy ex boyfriend of the woman Eric was with that night. Perhaps after she left, he broke into the house and killed Eric. The problems with that are that there was no forced entry and the alarm didn't go off. Also, if your a crazy ex lover, wouldn't you at least go after your former flame? She was interviewed in the UM segment and appears to be doing fine. The reason that I tend to point to Don Dixon is he claims to have had a key to Eric's house. Well since there was no forced entry, maybe Don used the key to get into the house late at night and killed Eric.

IMO, there just wasn't enough hard evidence presented to confirm or eliminate any of the suspects and not enough to warrant further speculation.

We can thank Sheriff Wampler for that. You had said earlier that Wam pler had turned over the investigation to the state. How do you know this? I havent heard or read that anywhere.

They said it in the segment, if I recall.

Destroying the bed is, IMO, evidence of one of two possibilities: (1) bad motive (some involving in the murder); or (2) utter stupidity. Neither one inspires much confidence in LE.

Okay I am going out on a limb with this one. I don't necesarily agree with it but we are brainstorming here. Eric Smith claims barely anyone knew Don Dixon. Dixon claimed to be close to Eric Tamiyasu and claimed to even field some calls from his friends. The cops HAD to have looked into these "friends" to say if Dixon is telling the truth unless Sheriff Wampler covered up for Dixon.

So therefore the only person alive is Dixon that really knows how close he was to Eric. Now Dixon is a married man. But did he have a secret out there about an alternate lifestyle? Could this be why Dixon claims they were so close yet no one would ever see them around each other much. Much of it was done behind...ahem.........closed doors. Maybe Eric had a secret too? Then he starts dating this woman and that irks Dixon to no end and it is a crime of passion.

Stranger things have happened. Perhaps Dixon is telling the truth about having a spare key to Eric's house. If this is true who in their right mind would give a spare key to a guy he buys "spray" from? They could have been closer than people think but it was in private.

I am not trying to smear Eric's name or drag it through the mud either

That has been discussed on here. I think its a very plausible scenario as well. However, the scenario we spoke of had Don Dixon obsessed with Eric yet Eric did not reciprocate it. I theorized that Don had a crush on Eric, Eric did not feel the same way or at least Don got the feeling that he did not feel the same way. The key that he had to Eric's house didn't necessarily have to be given to him. He could have stolen Eric's and made a copy or just simply stolen Eric's. However, if he did give him a key, which we will never know, then Don wasn't just someone he bought spray from.

I don't know if you've looked, Clockwork, but there was post a page or two back that we suspected was either Don Dixon or a friend of Don Dixon. You should check it out.

Yes I did. And I wouldn't put it past that putz Dixon to post on here either. Although if it was Dixon he didn't seem to deny any rumours about him being gay or a murderer.
