On 18 March 1999, Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog were arrested, and later convicted, of multiple murders in and around the Linden area of California. The pair are known as the Speed Freak Killers and their reign of terror spanned for 15 years from 1984 to 1999. This series focuses on the estimated 60 victims, and their families, along with the investigations surrounding the cases. Why did two best friends evolve from hunting animals to hunting humans? How did two serial killers get away with potentially dozens of murders for more than a decade? Hosted by Investigative Crime Journalist Shane Waters & Wendy Cee

Love Foul Play
I’ve been following the Sister Cathy story on this podcast after watching The Keepers on Netflix. This show is fascinating and so well done. It’s interesting to listen to more detailed information than what was shared in the docuseries and exciting to hear recent updates. The music, sound effects and stories of the past create a fully immersive experience similar to being lost in a book or movie. Everyone who is interviewed is so forthcoming and brave. Shane and Gemma are great active listeners and talented interviewers. Often times I’ll have a question in my mind about a detail I’m curious about and next thing I know, one of them asks that same question. I listen while walking my dog and before I know it, I’ve walked 3 miles! I look forward to hearing more Aw new details come along.
All the seasons of Foul Play are amazingly researched. Fantastical told and very respectful of the victims.
Thank you for all the work you all do to bring us a incredible podcast.
