168. Made The Devil Do It: The Speed Freak Killers

 On a flat and lonely stretch of highway in San Joaquin County, California, in February of 2012, onlookers were horrified as a backhoe violently tore into an abandoned well, nicknamed "Loren's Boneyard." The giant claws of the backhoe rose out of the ground holding a massive amount of dirt and the skeletal remains of the victims buried within—the victims presumably of Loren Herzog and Wesley Shermantine, AKA The Speed Freak Killers. While only convicted of murdering four people, they are suspected of murdering upward of 72 people.
