One of the Speed Freak Killers is Dead

I probably should not be smiling as I read and type this but I am. Loren Herzog is dead, he hung himself.

Not only does this mean that there is one less serial killer roaming the Earth it also has to piss Wesley Shermantine  off. Loren’s death gives Shermantine one less toy to play with.

Notorious serial killer Loren Herzog has committed suicide, it was revealed last night.

The body of Herzog, 46, was found Monday night hanging inside his trailer located immediately outside the grounds of High Desert State Prison in Susanville, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Department said.

He was living so close to a prison because at the time of his death Herzog was in the middle of a fierce debate over where he was living and was the subject of a lawsuit seeking to banish him from the remote northeast California county.

Normally, under Californian law, once someone is released from prison they return to the last place they lived. But relatives of victims can ask that they live at least 35 miles from their homes. Until this was resolved authorities allowed him to live in the grounds of the prison.

Herzog was at the beginning of a 78-year prison sentence for three murder convictions when an appeals court in 2004 ruled investigators illegally coerced his confession.

Without the confession, prosecutors said they were left little evidence and had no choice but to offer Herzog a deal to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the killing of Cyndi Vanderheiden, 25, in November 1998.

Parole agents went to Herzog’s home around midnight Tuesday when a low-battery alarm on his GPS unit went off.
