The Pleasanton Weekly journalists covered the case from the discovery of the bodies through the sentencing of their murderer — their son Ernest Scherer III — three years later.

Because of the existence of the paper and the constancy of leadership, we were able to provide credible information and historical context to the “Gambling With Death” episode on ID’s “Married With Secrets” series.

A lot has changed since 2008, in Pleasanton, in the newspaper industry and at the Pleasanton Weekly.
