Who:
Robbery Homicide Detectives

Why:
After numerous legal and procedural delays, Los Angeles police detectives have received extradition authority.  Investigators from Robbery Homicide Division traveled to Saipan during the week of October 5, 2008 and accepted Kazuyoshi Miura into custody based on an arrest warrant and extradition authority.  
                 
Detectives and Miura will land at Los Angeles International Airport on October 10, 2008.  Miura will be transported to Parker Center and booked for the murder of his wife.  

Kazumi Miura, who was 28 years old at the time, was shot on November 18, 1981. She was at a location in the 200 block of Fremont Avenue, in downtown Los Angeles. She died over a year later in Japan on November 30, 1982.

Miura was convicted in Japan in 1994 of the murder of his wife, but the verdict was overturned by the country's high courts.

Miura was arrested at Saipan’s airport on February 22, 2008 on a warrant, charging him with the murder of his wife, and conspiracy.

Miura’s was taken into police custody on the Island of Saipan, located in the northern Marianas Islands, a commonwealth territory of the United States. Detectives with the LAPD’s Cold Case Homicide Unit had been closely working with authorities in Guam and Saipan, believing that Miura would be visiting the island from his residence in Japan.
