Crews continued working to refill a well where more than 1,000 bones and bone fragments were found, after searching for a week for the remains of victims who may have been murdered by Wesley Shermantine Jr. or Loren Herzog.
The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department had nothing new to report on Saturday and Sunday. It was unclear whether investigators plan to search a second well on the property, located on Flood Road east of Linden.
Sheriff’s spokesman Les Garcia said there won’t be any briefings to the media until today at the earliest.
