Well I think he was trying to act like a thrid party sticking up for Dixon rather than admitting to being Dixon himself. I know Mastermind and myself PM him a few times but never received a response. I mean come on, who else would know about these Taco Bell rendezvous than Dixon himself.

I was born and raised in Hood River and I know Sheriff Wampler and his family. Of course nice people are capable of murder, but I really have a hard time believing that he did this, because he is a genuinely warm and kind person.

Nothing much happens in Hood River. It's a very safe town, it's really small, and I think it's really unlikely that a hitman was involved. We just don't have those kind of resources here.

All that means is you just don;t have professional hitman who do hits for a living.

If you are in a small town you still have
1. law enforcement and ex-law enforcement
2. ex-cons
3. drug dealers
4. drunks and drug addicts
5.current and ex-soldiers
6. juvenile delinquents
7. psychopaths

All of which can be hired to hit someone.

People tend to believe that just because there is no violent crime in an area, that there is no criminal activity occuring. Drug use, contraband and illegal business activity exist in every town in america. It just doesn't lead to people shooting each other as it does in large cities. If there is no competition and criminals are happy..they don;t kill anybody.

That being said...

1.Marijauna dealing was/is very large Oregon if I remember. That alone brings potential hitmen. I think crystal meth was even making it's way inroads then.

2. Hood River is a port city. Where you have ports..there is always the potential for contraband and smuggling which is done by.

3. I could be wrong but Hood River is near a reservation. The spillage crime on Indian Reservation is something to consider.

I'm sure his and would probably enjoy talking to him and having him as a friend or a relative.

However he also;
1. Carries a gun
2. Has into potentially dangerous situations.
3. Is a politician and has to play the political game to keep his job.
4. has enemies that would want to see him either dead or banished from the job.
5. Has to reduce crime in the area using tactical methods.


You don't get to be a sheriff for as long as Wampler by simply being a nice guy.

Since you know them, was Wampler's wife indeed having an affair with Eric, which had been rumored? Also, do you know Don Dixon? If so, is he the squirly person he comes across on tv and Eric Smith said he was or was he truly a close friend of Eric Tamiyasu's?

In the UM segment, Dixon first claims that he discovered the body, said a prayer, and then went downstairs to call the police. Later on in the segment it was revealed that Dixon also called Eric's sister, and mentioned that there weren't any exit wounds. Dixon explained that he had examined the body to look for any evidence of suicide. It's interesting that he didn't mention that before. It's also interesting that Dixon claims he was doing his own investigation on the body, especially when the body was in such an advanced state of decomposition. Personally if I found my close friend dead like that I wouldn't be able to stay in the room for long, let alone poke around the decomposed body looking for exit wounds.

Yes a normal person would not have the stomach or even the heart to see their dead friend there. You'd either go screaming out of the room or be vomitting in the toilet by the sounds of how Eric's body was found.

But that is just the thing. Dixon likely wasn't very close to Eric at all. And he probably murdered him too which is something no one here goes against.

Just came across a thought..I think this was mentioned before..

..what if Don Dixon and Eric Tamiyasu were growing marijuana on Eric's orchard's? (can you do that from those type of orchards?)

It would explain Don and Eric's mysterious relationship

"He's someone I buy spray from.."

"Most of his friends never heard of Don"

I bet that Eric would ignore Don's friend request on Facebook had it existed then

I'm laughing at the thought of the 'Taco Bell rendezvous' being posted on facebook.

Good question; I've heard enough about marijuana (known or unknown to the landowner) being planted in corn fields, so it could be a possibility with an orchard, especially in a very isolated location. Didn't the segment say that Tamiyasu's business wasn't thriving?

The relationship seems so one sided; no one besides Dixon (and mssamspade) claim they were close.

I really wish that person that posted on here a few months back claiming the Taco Bell rendezvous, would post again. We all have questions for that person. Its obvious that it is either Don Dixon or someone close to Dixon.

The cops were dumb but Don was dodgey and I reckon he committed the murder.

You know that thought never occured to me..that someone could have been growing on Eric's land without his knowledge. If Eric found out about it, that would be motive enough to kill him.

I wonder if Don Dixon's close relationship was because he was trying to get Eric to go in with him on growing.

I wonder who runs the orchards know that Eric has passed away?

Not unless he wants Don to buy more "spray" from Don.



Seriously,

Why does that phrase "Don is someone I bought spray from. Period." bothering me???

The other Eric seems to insinuate that Don Dixon is practically a stranger. But throughout the interview the other Eric seems to convey that he knew Don a little better that the rest of Eric's family. Why else would he say "Don lives in a fantasy world."?

What I am getting at is that I don't think Don Dixon and Eric Tamiyasu's relationship is as one-sided as the other Eric says.
