It's official. Loren Herzog is a free man, according to top sources. The convicted murderer, one of two alleged serial killers known as the "Speed Freak Killers," did his time according to law and was paroled to Lassen County after several other counties including San Joaquin County, his last legal residence refused to allow him to parole there.
In a joint press release issued late, Friday, Sept. 17, by Susanville Chief of Police Jeff Atkinson and Lassen County Sheriff Steve Warren, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has provided both departments with terms and conditions of parole for Herzog.•Some of the terms include the following:
• Curfew from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. During these hours Herzog will be required to remain on state prison grounds.
•Herzog will not be allowed to leave the state property without permission from a CDCR parole agent and will only be able to leave grounds with an escort.
•Herzog also is required to participate in continuous electronic monitoring (GPS)
Both agencies continue to work with local officials, the release said, to seek alternatives to Herzog's placement within our jurisdictions. Local law enforcement agencies will continue to work closely with CDCR's Parole Division and local prison administrators to ensure the safety of its citizens.
