After a few years out of the spotlight, Petaluma's notorious Sampson family is back in the news after a badly decomposed body was found on their property and a feud with neighbors grew ugly when one family member allegedly began dumping human waste at a nearby property.
In an unrelated case, a dispute with neighbors over a dog allegedly led a member of the Sampson family to dump human waste on their property in retaliation.
The feud continued to escalate, reaching a head in February last year when the neighbor found buckets and bags of human feces, bloody tampons and other garbage in a drainage ditch on their property.
But years before that, the twins and their father, Howard, launched a heated campaign against then Petaluma mayor Helen Putnam.

The obituary for one of the twins said he was born in San Raphael and lived most of his life in Sonoma County.
Sonoma County is famous for redneckery....
“I live in KY, (iirc) no place in my state fits that description, it seems this
article is from Kalifornia Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown’s socialist paradise. “
Yes, but “A Christmas Story” takes place in SOuth Bend Indiana, where the Bumpuses lived. In this case, locale has nothing to do with hillbilliness as it is more a state of mind than a state.
You’re not getting all PC on me at the FR site?
Who the #311 are these people?
I thought Sampson was still in prison on tax evasion charges after he got away with the murder of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.
Oh Yes! and read the comments -—— Unbelievable!
How dare you defame hillbillys. We’d have fed him to the hogs. Those folks have no sense at all. Geez.
Sampson twins take on the law, again
