Mapp Signs Extradition Request For St. Thomas Man Wanted On Murder Charge

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / July 31, 2016

ST. THOMAS — Governor Kenneth Mapp executed an extradition request on Saturday for K’moi Corraspe, who is wanted for first degree murder in the territory as a result of the December 10, 2015 murder of Kadeem O. John on the island of St. Thomas, Government House announced late Saturday.

Mr. Corraspe is currently being held without bail in New York State after a plain-clothes police detail stopped him with two females after entering a building with a clearly posted “No Trespassing” sign.

After running background checks on all three individuals, the White Plains police arrested Mr. Corraspe on an outstanding warrant for first degree murder issued in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

According to the release, Mr. Mapp, through the Attorney General’s Office, has presented the extradition request to the governor of the State of New York. This joint effort is a result of real-time reporting of crime and suspect data to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system, according to Government House.

The release says the V.I.P.D. has continued to implement the further use of technology in both its crime prevention and apprehension efforts. NCIC is a computerize database of documented criminal justice information available to virtually every law enforcement agency nationwide 24 hour a day.

Police Commissioner Delroy Richards will be holding a press briefing with the media on August 1 at 9:00 am at the Patrick Sweeney Police complex in Frederiksted, to inform the community of ongoing investigations and initiatives.
