The extradition papers should be in two places. First, and more convenient for you, you should be able to find them at the county courthouse for the county in Washington in which he was being held. The file is likely only to contain a copy, as the original would have been sent to Florida. When you get to the courthouse go to the clerk of courts
office and determine how the files are indexed, and determine the case number XXXXX to his case. It is like the file is now in the "dead files" room. This is where the clerk's office sends files after they are closed. You should find the document in the file, and you can copy it.
The second location, which will not be convenient for you, is in the court file in Florida. You will follow the same process as above.
The document you are seeking is a public record, so you can contact the county in Florida that is seeking extradition, and request a copy.
Another place to look would be the office of the attorney, if any, that represented him in 1997.
