SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The tedious and grisly search for the
remains of long-lost victims of two California serial killers will
continue into a second week, as cadaver dogs were brought in to
help searchers.

San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department officials and other
searchers have extracted some 1,000 human remains from an old well near the farming town of Linden, about 12 miles east of Stockton.

Department spokesman Les Garcia said Friday authorities are
using specially trained dogs to determine whether other nearby
wells also contain human remains.

Searchers are pursuing information provided by Death Row inmate
Wesley Shermantine, one of the two so-called "Speed Freak
Killers" suspected of murdering as many as 20 people in the 1980s
and 1990s.

The other was Loren Herzog, who was released from prison on a technicality and killed himself in Susanville in January.
