This set of hands belongs to a former Danville CA Stake member - who is also standing with Las Vegas in the background - There are other Mormons in Pittsburg where another victims was beheaded.  I'm going to wait this out to see if Alameda DA offices will review what I've found and what I know about this case.

v. 
ERNEST FRANCES SCHERER, 
 Defendant and Appellant. 
  
 A132585 

 (Alameda County 
 Super. Ct. No. C161707) 


 The parents of 29-year-old Ernest Frances Scherer III (defendant) were found murdered in their home, bludgeoned and stabbed, their throats slit. After a 55-day jury trial in which more than 90 witnesses testified, defendant was convicted of two special circumstance murders with personal use of a sharp instrument: murder for financial gain and multiple murders. (Pen. Code, §§ 187, 190.2, subd. (a)(1) & (a)(3).) He was sentenced to two life terms without possibility of parole.

On March 18, the detectives did a walk-through of the house with Catherine and a family friend to determine whether anything was missing. Scherer had kept four ceremonial swords in the hall closet, and one of them was gone. Other missing items were a silver napkin ring holder, two statues from the basement office,  and Scherer’s and Abendroth’s cell phones. Beyond those few items, nothing appeared to be missing. A safe in the home was later drilled open and found to be empty
