In September last year, a little girl was abandoned at the Southern Cross Station, a train station in Melbourne, Australia. Xue_southern_cross_station.jpg

She had been on a flight from Auckland, New Zealand with her father. Later that day, her father boarded a flight for Los Angeles, and Melbourne police dubbed the little girl left by the "Pumpkin" because of the Pumpkin patch clothes she was wearing (its a big NZ children's clothes brand).

Auckland police searched the home of the man, Nai Yin Xue, and found Pumpkin's mother dead in the boot of the car outside. A search warrant went out to Interpol, and LA Police were notified. A week or so later, LA Police claimed to be close to catching Xue, but them lost him.

Now, a chase across America has begun. Xue was spotted in Texas last week, and in Alabama yesterday. It is simply a matter of time before he is caught.

However, there is the question of international criminals. Xue has not commited a crime in America, but it will be American police (either state or FBI) who catch him. He is wanted in both Australia, and most importantly New Zealand, and has commited crimes in both. So who gets him first, or does one country try him in absentia, and transfer the sentence to another country?

I heard about this but I had forgotten about it. I imagine the U.S. and New Zealand or Australia probably cooperate pretty well on prisoner extradition so I guess he'll probably be extradited once (if) caught.

It can be very different if a suspect flees to a less cooperative country like Russia. (Litvinenko case)

I imagine they would send him to NZ since he is wanted for the worst crimes there and will hopefully get the worse punishment, though I don't know how the NZ justice system works. Hopefully it isn't full of a bunch of pansys.

There's also an option of him serving a part of his sentence in NZ and another part of it in Australia.

I believe they will cooperate, unlike with the French and that Serial Killer

The bastard also caused more damage to his family than Marsoe posted.

After committing the murders in NZ he fled to Australia, and later as said, America. People like him make me wish that we still had the death sentence here. Then again, he doesn't deserve something so painless.

IIRC all Australia or New Zealand has to do is formally request his extradition. The US is on good terms with both countries I see no problems with transferring him.

I would think that wherever the most severe crimes occurred thats who will have extradition priority.

But if he puts up a fight when the US go to arrest him he may wind up dead.

No, I would rather he be caught, extradited, tried, convicted, and then put in a prison cell with Bubba so Bubba and his "fresh meat" can get better acquainted.

I'm not particularly bothered about vengeance. Whatever gets the job done.
