A crew from CBS13 were at the Tuesday meeting of the Board of Supervisors. Reporter Laura Cole talked to board members during the public comment portion of the meeting, asking for them to push for the release of documents related to the case of killers Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog. With them was Michelle Loftis, sister of victim JoAnn Hobson. Hobson’s remains were removed from a well in Linden last year.
Hobson’s family has been critical of the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office’s handling of the recovery effort. Tests of the skeletal remains returned to Hobson’s family found there were mingled with remains from other victims. On Tuesday, Cole was asking for the release of information from the Sheriff’s Office, including emails and an anthropologist’s report on the remains.
