FBI officials in Sacramento announced this morning that they will begin excavating a new site in San Joaquin County's Linden area in hopes of finding remains of victims of serial killers Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, pictured at left.

Herb Brown, special agent in charge of the FBI's Sacramento office, said there is no guarantee that investigators will find remains. However, officials are hopeful based on information gathered so far in the investigation.

The excavation of an old well is expected to take two-to-three weeks. During that time, Flood Road will be closed to the public.

Brown said the FBI is being assisted by a number of agencies, engineers and excavation experts.
