Colorado School Shooter’s Mexican Father Is An Illegal Immigrant And A Serial Felon

0 689

Jose Evis Quintana, the father of alleged 16-year-old killer Alec McKinney, who opened fire at the STEM School Highlands Ranch in Colorado, killing one and wounding eight, is an illegal immigrant and a serial felon. He has been deported twice for domestic violence and was once jailed for 15 months. Quintana comes from Mexico.

Alec McKinney is transgender and has since been charged alongside his friend Devon Erickson with murder in the school shooting near Denver, Colorado. He obviously comes from a very messed up family and wrote how he missed his father on social media just 11 days before the shooting.

Quintana, 33, has a lengthy record of multiple arrests in Colorado dating between 2008 and 2017. Court documents show that despite Quintana terrorizing Alec’s mother Morgan Lynn McKinney, 32, he managed to convince her to marry him in 2009, a year before he was deported for the first time. Quintana has a history of drinking and using drugs. He was deported for the first time to Mexico on December 9th, 2010.

Alec McKinney, who was born a girl called Mya, turned 16 on April 14 and wrote on Twitter on April 26: “My mom talking to me about how she hates the new alec. Mom: I miss my Alec can you find him for me. Me: I miss my dad can you find him for me.”

Quintana, who is 5 ft. 10 ins. tall had been in a long term relationship with Morgan, who is a hairstylist, when they had Alec, born Mya Elizabeth, on April 14, 2003. In January 2007 the couple had a son and in July 2008 they had a daughter. Just two months later, on August 22, 2008, Quintana was charged with attempting to kidnap, ‘menacing’ with a weapon, and failing to stop for police. He was jailed on February 3, 2009, pending his trial, when he failed to see a court official.

Court papers said Quintana: “Wishes to stay in custody since he has a problem with drugs and alcohol.” The court agreed with Quintana and allowed him to have supervised visits with Alec and his siblings in jail, on condition Morgan was not present. While his trial was pending, Morgan was awarded permanent custody of their children.

From The Daily Mail:

“On September 2009 Quintana was sentenced to 15 months in prison when all the charges against him, apart from ‘menacing’ Morgan with a weapon, were dropped. He was also ordered to undergo domestic violence counseling.

“Despite the sentence and the crimes Quintana committed against her, Morgan married Quintana in Castle Rock on November 28, 2009.

“Quintana was then deported and sent back to Mexico on December 9, 2010.

“In divorce papers filed by Morgan on November 19, 2014, Morgan described how Quintana ‘has been traveling illegally between Colorado and Mexico’ since the deportation.

“Morgan was never able to serve her husband with papers but the court granted her a divorce on May 11, 2015.

“On December 27, 2016, police in Castle Rock learned a warrant had been issued against Quintana in New Mexico for domestic violence.

“They found him at a house in Castle Rock and arrested him for being a fugitive from justice. He was jailed pending his extradition to New Mexico.

“Quintana never made it to New Mexico. On April 21, 2017, he was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and deported.”

Alec was evidently bullied at school and also wondered on Twitter why his dad left.

Just hours before the attack Erickson and McKinney allegedly broke into the gun cabinet at Erickson’s parents’ home. At 1:50 pm local time, they entered the middle school portion of the K-12 academy and began shooting. Students managed to overpower them but not before the pair had shot eight students and killed Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old student who had attempted to stop them.

Erickson and McKinney are due in Douglas County District Court in Castle Rock on Wednesday, May 15. There is no comment from Alec’s mother or father on the horrific incident and why their son would do this. Perhaps because they can’t understand his actions. The father may still be deported as well. At least, let’s hope so.
