Photograph of William Edward Hickman, seated in a chair, handcuffed to Detectives Richard Lucas (left) and Harry Raymond during his extradition from Pendleton, Oregon, to Los Angeles. Traveling by Southern Pacific Rail car, the group included District Attorney Keyes, Chief Cline, and former Chief of Police Davis, all of whom appear to have interrogated Hickman during the journey. Several newspaper journalists also traveled with the group. The train left Oregon December 25 and arrived in Los Angeles December 27, 1927.
Photograph of a man, wearing a suit jacket, pants, button down sweater and hat, standing in front of a jail cell door, holing a skeleton key in one hand. The unidentified man guards the cell that held William Edward Hickman, who kidnapped and murdered 12-year-old Marion Parker in Los Angeles, December of 1927. He was captured in Echo, Oregon after an 8-day manhunt, and held in Pendleton, Oregon for extradition. Hickman was sentenced to death after a 13-day trial. He was executed in San Quentin, October 19, 1928.
Crowds of men and women, many wearing winter coats and hats, photographed outside what is probably a railroad depot. A number of people stand on a snow-covered embankment just above a walkway filled with crowds walking or standing near the structure on the left. The train on the right appears to be at a standstill.
From left to right, Inspector H.K. Gardner of the Ontario Provincial Police, murder suspect Harold W. Vermilyea, and Detective Sergeant Frederick Isard of the Belleville Police Department standing in a room with two framed photographs and stencilled borders on the walls, carpeting, curtains, and a chair. This photograph was possibly taken on October 17, 1934 when Gardner and Isard took Vermilyea from Santa Fe Station to Canada via Chicago and Detroit. Vermilyea was the suspect in the ax murder of his mother in Belleville, Ontario and had waived extradition.
