After thinking about it, I wonder if Eric's date lied about someone knocking on the window? I'm not saying she killed Eric, but maybe she lied to create a third party so she wouldn't be framed? She was the last one who saw him alive after all......

I know it's already been said, but I recently watched this one again and have to say that Eric's murder is definitely tied to the date he had that night. It's no coincidence that he was murdered that night, IMO.

agreed. I know this is going to sound absurd but I wonder if his date was in on it at any capacity? not saying she murdered him, but maybe the murderer conspired with her to lead Eric on so he could get in?

Could be a connection, but the woman was interviewed in the segment and doesn’t look or act suspicious in any way. I think she was genuinely trying to offer what information she had. I was always just more relieved for her that she left when she did.

I know you posted this ages ago, but I agree.

Don Dixon might as well be Bob Bean in that his commentary and interview make him look extremely suspect, but the evidence just isn't there. The exit wounds comment (and potentially that mysterious post way back in this thread) make him look suspicious, but it is possible he's just an unusual person in general. Throwing shade at Eric Smith (about the business investment amount in particular and stating that he owed Eric Tamiyasu lots of money) reminds me of Bob Bean throwing shade at his ex-wife.

Sheriff Wampler burning the bed was obviously very stupid. But had he been responsible, he had to have known that an autopsy would be performed and his burning of the bed would be highly suspect and scrutinized once the cause of death was discovered.

As for Eric Smith, I think he's the least suspicious of the bunch. Law Enforcement even corroborated that his investment amount in the business with Eric was way lower than Don Dixon claimed, and found no evidence that he owed Eric a lot of money.

If Eric's date indeed had a jealous ex who might have wanted to sabotage the date and murder Eric, I would certainly hope he was investigated by the police. Taking with a grain of salt that the mysterious poster claimed the date ended on a much more intimate level than the segment portrayed, it could provide a possible motive for a jealous ex-partner if true (or at least, if the jealous ex suspected it).

Burning the bed in itself isn’t suspicious to me since there was no indication there was foul play at that point and cleaning the scene of a decomposing body is to be expected. What I can’t wrap my mind around is why did the sheriff ask Don to burn the bed? It wasn’t Don’s business or job to be involved. He should have been asked to leave once he was interviewed by police.

I agree that it wasn't suspicious in itself, but it would bring a ton of scrutiny upon him, which he would have wanted to avoid had he been the perpetrator.

I do agree that Don should not have been the one tasked with the burning, either. It's just one of those random odd things about this case that seems to be piled up in a stack of red herrings.

I always thought it was because the Sheriff didn't want the family to see the condition of the bed (I believe it was stained in the shape of Eric's body) so he got a friend of Eric's to do it. Since Dixon found the body and had a key to his house, Dixon seemed close enough to Eric to do it.

I certainly get the reason for burning the bed. It just seems like the sheriff should have brought in a professional crew to handle that. People are probably found dead in bed all the time days, weeks or unfortunately months after death. Cleaning the scene doesn’t involve just destroying the bed but probably cleaning the entire house. Do the cops usually ask friends of the family to help with that? I’m guessing there was a cleaning service that cleaned Eric’s entire house top to bottom. Asking Don to burn the bed just seems lazy and sloppy and in this case of course only added to the suspicion once it was discovery Eric was murdered. Maybe a professional service would have found shell casings or something obviously suspicious right away.

For all we know, Dixon volunteered to burn the bed and Wampler simply agreed. The bed burning aspect of this case was overblown by UM, IMO. Wampler's only potential motive in this case involved an unconfirmed rumor (from Dixon) about Eric having an affair with an older, Polynesian woman and because Wampler's wife was an older Polynesian woman that somehow could mean she was the woman. It was such a stupid detail that added nothing to the case.

What cleared the girl he was dating and why did it take a week for anyone to check on him? Why would a guy he buys spray from have a key? I have so many questions.
