A fugitive wanted in connection with a man's 2017 murder in Miami Beach was extradited to South Florida after he was captured in Thailand, authorities said.

 

Matthew McGowan, 32, was wanted in the Sept. 16, 2017 fatal shooting of Jose Alberto Martinez Valenzuela.

 

In a news release Friday, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said McGowan was in custody in South Florida.

 

“I want to thank the government of Thailand, U.S. Department of Justice Office of International Affairs, United States Marshals Service, Interpol Central Bureau and F.B.I., for all of their assistance in helping bring Matthew McGowan back to Miami to stand trial," Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.

Interesting, how did hey extradite him when there are no flights anywhere? A special charter flight for one prisoner and a team of armed guards?

Seems that if a farang is wanted in another country, the police here are quiet good at finding him/her and then extraditing.

 

However, they're not so good if a farang commits the crime here - seems then the farang can slip quietly away providing the victim was another farang - American who killed Aussie in Pattaya Bar; Norwegian who killed Brit in Phuket etc etc.

 

And they are really bad at getting wanted Thais back to Thailand.

 

All seems rather selective. Wonder what the criteria is? 🙂

You are so right!    Do you think the criteria has anything to do with brown envelopes??   Just a guess, of course & it just might be what you're thinking of??!!
