More remains linked to "Speed Freak Killers' foundMore remains found near the site where 2 victims of 'Speed Freak Killers' were recovered
SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (AP) ' Authorities say more human remains have been recovered in Northern California near the site where two victims of a convicted serial killer were recently found.
San Joaquin County Sheriff's spokesman Les Garcia says the remains were found Thursday when crews, with the help of cadaver dogs, expanded a search area near the Calaveras County community of San Andreas.
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.
Garcia says the remains found Thursday are believed to be another victim of Shermantine and Loren Herzog, dubbed the "Speed Freak Killers" for their killing spree in the 1980s and 1990s.
Shermantine has also led authorities to a well in San Joaquin County where investigators have found hundreds of human bone fragments.
