Sheriff: At least 3 bodies found in Calif. well linked to 'Speed Freak Killers'; 2 teens ID'ed

FRENCH CAMP, Calif. - Authorities have released the identities of two Northern California teen girls whose remains were found inside an abandoned well and linked to two men known as the "Speed Freak Killers."

San Joaquin County Sheriff Steve Moore on Friday identified 19-year-old Kimberly Billy, who went missing in 1984 at the age of 19.

He says 16-year-old Joann Hobson disappeared in 1985.

Moore says a third body found is awaiting identification.

Investigators believe they were victims of Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, who authorities say went on a methamphetamine-fueled killing spree in the 1980s and 90s.

Shermantine is now on death row for four murders. He sent authorities on a massive search last month after he agreed to disclose burial locations in exchange for $33,000 from a bounty hunter.
