Blunt Seeks Extradition for Murderer

Timothy Krajcir admitted to killing 5 Missouri women
Son of one victim lives in Strafford

Gov. Matt Blunt is requesting that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich expedite extradition for Timothy Krajcir, a convicted murderer who has been charged with five counts of murder and three counts of rape against women in the Cape Girardeau region.
We talked to the son of one of the victim's last week. You can view the KY3 News @ 10 story HERE.

“The crimes with which Krajcir is charged are among the most heinous in Missouri history,” Gov. Blunt said. “The person responsible terrorized a Missouri community with a series of random, wanton, and horrible rapes and murders. Because of the extraordinary nature of these crimes, I have pledged to the people of Missouri and particularly Cape Girardeau County that I will do everything possible to bring Krajcir to a court of justice as soon as possible.”

Gov. Blunt received the extradition documents late Friday afternoon and after reviewing the documents signed them today to ensure justice may be served in Missouri. Along with the extradition request, Gov. Blunt is requesting immediate transfer of Timothy Krajcir to Missouri.
