Cyndi Vanderheiden's remains are likely located in Calaveras County, said nationally known bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who added that he's willing to pay convicted killer Wesley Shermantine Jr. $15,000 to show where her body is located.

California Department of Corrections officials talked about transporting Shermantine to San Joaquin and Calaveras counties as early as Wednesday so that Shermantine could show them where the remains of Vanderheiden and other victims are located, Padilla said.

    I hope for ALL of the families this will bring some closure. If Padilla is willing to fork out cash for the truth, then do it and stop this madness. Shermantine lies time and again. I can't imagine anything he says would be the truth - unless it's for money. That's all he's ever been about is the money. And the drugs. I agree with Padilla that if
    Shermantine gave vital information about where their victims are located, and this was passed to Herzog, he most certainly took the easy way out. So abviously there's some truth to it, or Padilla made an educated guess and bluffed......either way, one down, one to go.
