Scope and Content

This series consists of correspondence, requisitions and court documents relating to the extradition of criminals from other states to Utah for crimes committed in Utah.

In response to local level requests, the governor's office issued a formal extradition document. The series contains six extradition case files and one file concerning the murder of Edmund D. Hines. The extradition case files typically include letters to Governor Blood regarding the extradition, arrest warrants, affidavits of complaint and other legal documents. The main focus of the records pertaining to Mr. Hines is not on extradition. The file contains correspondence, court records, a hearing transcript , and inquiries about reward money.
