White / Police turn up the heat ON THE RECORD FROM PAGE A1 to comment. The affidavit filed in support of the search warrant in Lincoln, Neb., revealed a string of circumstantial evidence against White. According to the Nebraska search warrant affidavit: • When questioned by authorities, White initially denied being in Salina July 20. He later said he had pawned items at a Salina pawn shop that morning but returned to Formoso at about noon, White told authorities no one could account for his whereabouts between the afternoon of July 20 and the afternoon of July 21, when the murders were committed. • White's father belonged to an amateur radio club with McKim's husband, James, who died in February. White had been inside the McKim house several times. • A footprint from a size 13 tennis shoe was found below a window inside the McKim garage. White told a Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent that he wore shoes ranging from size 11 to 13. White said he had thrown away his tennis shoes "because they were too stinky." • White's former girlfriend lives near Heather Ridge Apartments, where a car stolen from the McKim house at the time of the murders was abandoned. White has been a fugitive for more than two months. Hill said Thursday that police had not had a firm sighting of White since he was known to be in Cleveland, in August. White reportedly applied for cash benefits and food stamps at a welfare office there and was seen in places where homeless people congregate. Two Salina investigators were sent to Cleveland, but White's trail ran cold. Some people believe that if a murder warrant is issued for White, law enforcement officers in other jurisdictions will look more diligently for him. "A flier on a murder has more impact than a flier on a probation violator wanted for questioning in a murder," said Jim Clark, executive director of the Kansas County and District Attorney's Association and a Topeka attorney. "A lot of states wouldn't necessarily ignore it, but they'd put a warrant for probation violation on the bottom of the heap. With a first-degree murder warrant, you might have an expedited hearing for extradition and get him back more quickly." On the other hand, Clark said, extradition is sometimes granted without any hearing for people wanted on probation violations. "Normally, they (probationers) waive extradition rights when they accept probation or parole," he said. "Extradition might not apply." And, although it's rare, Clark said, Kansas' capital punishment laws might be a factor in the extradition of a triple-murder suspect. Governors in states that do not have the death penalty have, in the past, attempted to fight the extradition of people captured in their,states who would face the death penalty in the state in which they were to be prosecuted, Clark said. Several years ago, Clark recalled, before Kansas reinstated the death penalty, Kansas Gov. Joan Finney tried to keep a suspect from being extradited to Arkansas, which had the death penalty. "I don't think that probably would be a factor, but it could come up," Clark said. Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
