Third skull found


 A third discovery of human remains has been made in the case of convicted murderer Wesley Shermantine. San Joaquin County Sheriff's spokesman Les Garcia said what appears to be a partial human skull and human bones were found in a well off Flood Road in Linden about 4 p.m. Saturday. Crews were still excavating on the property Sunday, and Garcia said they will probably be out there for several more days, if not weeks. The remains will be sent to the Department of Justice for identification.

 Another new development is the tentative identification of the first body, found Thursday morning on Leonard Road property near San Andreas formerly owned by Shermantine's family, as Cyndi Vanderheiden, of Clements. She has been missing since 1998.
