am Charles Wilson, a former journalist and resident of the
Pacific Northwest. I am independent, having no ties to any of
the people, agencies, groups, or media outlets involved in the
tragic events of late November and early December of 2006.
Like others in the region and around the country, I became
captivated by the drama that unfolded in southwest Oregon
in late 2006, and was saddened by the loss of life there. This
website represents my effort to chronicle those events, and
ultimately to see something constructive emerge from the death
of one man and the discussion it has inspired.
