    Bounty Hunter: Shermantine Says There's a Third Well

    http://www.fox40.com/news/headlines/...,6972685.story


    Leonard Padilla told ABC7 Monday night that Shermantine told him about the new well on Sunday.

    http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?sec...ate&id=8551487


    Shermantine previously has talked of a second well containing victims, but Padilla said Monday that disclosure of a third well was new.
    All three sites are about a mile apart in San Joaquin County, he said.

    Padilla said he was informed of the third well by Shermantine in a telephone call Sunday.
    The site is near Waverly and Copperopolis roads, not far from a television tower.
    It allegedly contains a body put there by Herzog, Padilla said.

    And so it goes.... With as many as they likely killed I think he will continue to trickle information out. I don't buy the "death threats" and what not being a factor. He continues to control the situation in the only way he can now.

    Exactly. Has to have the control doesn't he? I have been following these developments... chills me to the core.

    I guess all I can be is thankful that he is speaking out. Even though he is trickling the information and probably exploiting it again and again. It boils down to the fact that this man will never be out of prison and desperate families will be getting some answers here.

    The scary part of all this to me is. The 1st well they just completed was not one of the wells on the map and they have over 1000 pieces of bone fragments.

    This thread is for general discussion of the serial killers Shermantine and Herzog. Most of the recent developments can be posted and discussed here. Shermantine's letters, his dealings with Padilla and LE, and practically anything else can be posted and discussed here.

    The thread in the Unidentified forum should be limited to discussion of victims, possible victims, the actual search for remains, and remains found. Remember that the focus of the forum is to give names to unidentified victims, and find answers to the fates of missing persons.

    I realize the topics sometimes overlap, but there really is a method to the madness. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

    Exactly!

    These two did nothing their whole lives but run around exploring caves and mines. Shermantine is playing with everyone and just giving us a taste. The money demands will go up and up and up! Before he is done he will want a day at Disneyland.

    I read an article today that talked to the Prosecutor on their cases. He said that Shermantine is trickling out information, and that he has not yet revealed the mother load of remains. He believes that Shermantine will eventually give up the bodies, but in small doses, for rewards.

    It is interesting that when Padilla told Shermantine that they found a skull and human remains in the wrong well, he said that Shermantine said "well those are not ours!" A little slip in the "Herzog did it all I'm innocent" stand he has made. LOL

    Read the same one. Thought it was interesting where he said that he agreed with Padilla about the Sheriff on an ego trip. And how he knows there is a safe way to have Shermantine on a field trip and show exactly where the wells are.

    Yeah that was a little shocking that he said that. I sure hope they dont let this go. They have Shermantine talking and they need to hit now while he still is.

    Yeah i am puzzled by this too. I really wish they would bring Shermantine to the spot and work with Padilla on this. Forget ego's this is about people getting closure and loved one's being brought home.
    The absence of the FBI is really disturbing.

    I thought it was odd that they abandoned the search in Calveras County so hastily. Perhaps when so many bones started turning up in Linden they made a decision to re-focus all of the attention and manpower there. I think now they've cleared up the confusion regarding where they were supposed to dig in Calveras. So with the first well completed, they'll return there and finish what they started. Meanwhile, Padilla and friends can work out the details on the second and third wells. This is a costly effort and should be carried out methodically rather than skipping around blindly, which I have a hunch they did in the beginning.

    This was first reported about ten days ago:

    The map he drew is kind of confusing," Padilla said. He later added: "There's more bodies in Calaveras and definitely more bodies up there (near Linden)."

    Post Serial killer’s gruesome roadmap leads to more human remains

    Posted: 7:15 a.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2012 KTVU And Wires
    LINDEN, Calif. —
    More human remains were recovered Thursday near the Northern California site where two victims of a convicted serial killer were recently found, authorities said.
    Crews using cadaver dogs located the remains after expanding a search area near the Calaveras County community of San Andreas, said San Joaquin County Sheriff's spokesman Les Garcia.
    Investigators have been searching the area after Wesley Shermantine led authorities to the site earlier this month. The search area is on property that Shermantine's family once owned.
    Authorities are investigating if the newly found remains are from another victim of Shermantine and Loren Herzog, dubbed the "Speed Freak Killers" for their killing spree in the 1980s and 1990s. Garcia said the remains will be sent to the California Department of Justice Bureau of Forensic Services for analysis. more at link: http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/crime-...human-r/nKPcN/

    During an interview Saturday at San Quentin State Prison's Death Row with a reporter for the Stockton Record, Shermantine said he was sorry it took so long for authorities to find the remains of 25-year-old Cyndi Vanderheiden and 16-year-old Chevelle Wheeler. Shermantine continued to deny that he killed them, saying he had only helped their killer bury them.

    During the interview, Shermantine also said that additional victims were killed and buried in Modesto, Stockton, Ripon and Milton.

    His interview comes after more human remains were recovered Thursday near the site where the remains of Vanderheiden and Wheeler were found.

    Meanwhile, San Joaquin County sheriff's officials are staying mum about any possible future searches for human remains.


    Sheriff's spokesman Les Garcia released a statement late Sunday saying sheriff's investigators had met on Friday with the FBI, the California Department of Justice and the San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office, but said details of the meeting would not be released.

    "I'm sorry I buried their loved ones," Shermantine told reporter Scott Smith. "In no way, shape or form did I kill them," he said.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_1...es-are-buried/

    Shermantine continued to deny that he killed them, saying he had only helped their killer bury them.
    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...#ixzz1naYC8Zct

    Gee, what a pal.

    He's sorry, but not sorry enough to give up real information about the other victims. If he buried them, he at least knows details about their physical appearance. I'd like to know if he's sharing any of it with LE.

    It's good to know the investigators are talking with the FBI because now we might be looking at bodies strewn over 150 miles. I can't imagine any local or state LE taking on a search of that magnitude without relying the on the feds for tactical support. Unbelievable!

    Shermantine is a lying sack of crap. It fascinates me as to why he and Herzog had been friends for so much of their life, and managed to turn their relationship into a toxic situation where they got their jollies by killing people.

    The San Joaquin County Sheriff has confirmed that he has met with the FBI and The California Department of Justice on how to proceed in the search for more human remains connected to the "Speed Freak Killers" case.
    Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgianni also said Monday she has sent a letter to the FBI making a personal plea for FBI investigators to be involved in the search

    Read more: http://www.kcra.com/shermantine-sear...#ixzz1ngRVSZ00

    and another snip :-(

    Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla received another letter from Shermantine -- who is on death row at San Quentin State Prison -- on Monday. Shermantine wrote that he wanted to know the DNA results from the skull found in the well. He said it may belong to Joann Hobson.
    Hobson went missing in 1985 when she was 16 years old.
    Galgianni told KCRA 3's Melinda Meza that she has been in contact with Hobson's mother. Hobson's mother said she has also received letters from Shermantine.
