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.
