Perhaps the waiting game is finally over. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that will allow convicted killer Wesley Shermantine Jr. to help authorities search for the remains of his long-dead victims, Brown's office announced Tuesday.

The governor signed A.B. 2357, authored by Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani, D-Tracy, which gives California's corrections secretary the authority to take serial killer Shermantine off death row and transport him to sites believed to hold the remains of his and Loren Herzog's victims.

    I hope this will bring some amount of closure to the victims famiies, and I hope this expedites this individual's return to his maker.

    Yes gentleman - it certainly would be a tragedy [wink]. Although - I do believe out in Linden's countryside there are plenty of blind spots. A bullt proof vest doesn't cover everything.....

    Wow, shades of "Fargo." Death by woodchipper would be too good for him.

    I doubt this creep will treat this as little more than a short "vacation" from death row, but if remains ARE found, at least some families can get "closure," (hate that word) through this experiment.

    Steve, I was thinking the same thing. I'll bet you anything they have him in a bullet proof vest.

    It certainly would be a tragedy of Shermantine tripped and fell into a wood chipper while he is traipsing through those vineyards.
