Hi Buddy

Hope this finds you well.
Hope you don’t mind you being my go to guy but know your help is so appreciated.
I have been involved with a hit and run since 11-11-01 and can’t let it go.
Can you tell me if there are limits on the extradition for Patrick J. Donovan


What are the chances of CCSO cold case squad looking into this?
I’m in touch with Brian’s family and know this haunts them and Beverly every day.
Can you help?

I looked into this a bit. Because it is an FHP case and we would not step into it without a request from FHP. However, the US Marshalls are involved and that is the same group we would turn to for help in this case. They have a fugitive task force that look for this type of person. I found a note in the file from 2013 where he was located in England and we are following up to determine why he was not extradited back then. When I get more info I will let you know. I will add that the Marshalls that work on these cases are very good.

Thank you, as always contact me with any other questions.
