6. A couple thoughts:
First, I am under the impression that they are not extraditing him. He is being deported from the country, and the US is taking custody. Similar, but not the same legal process.

Second, the guy strikes the average person as a fucking creep. He appears -- and this is solely from the few glimpses on tv, and reading the papers -- that he has some characteristics that fit the personality type known as schizoid. The inadequate relationships, the loner, the guy who believes he is a spectator of a world that excludes him, and a few other things. (I am not saying he "is" schizoid. Just that this came to mind.) Now, kind of like sociopaths/psychopaths, while these folks are "different" in very real ways, it does not follow that their condition is a mental illness. But there are a number of traits, or characteristics.

Part of the criteria one looks for is preoccupation with fantasy and introspection. However, while this might make one question if this creep constructed this in his mind -- perhaps with the help of the cheesey college professor -- it may be that in the next week we find there are more clues that tie him to the crime scene.

It's a strange case. This afternoon, I'll be at a picnic with a few of the best investigators (retired from federal/state agencies; some PIs) one could hope to talk to about their impressions of the case. I'm interested in their impressions.
