33-year-old Jose Evis Quintana is the father of alleged STEM school shooter Alec McKinney. Quintana has a string of arrests and considered a serial felon who is also an illegal immigrant from Mexico, DailyMail.com reported.
Arrests range from 2008 to 2017 and include a 15-month jail sentence in August 2009 charged with attempting to kidnap, ‘menacing with a weapon’ and domestic violence against Alec’s mother, hairstylist Morgan McKinney. Court papers even noted that Quintana wanted to stay in custody due to a problem ‘with drugs and alcohol.’
In February 2009 Quintana was jailed pending his trial for failure to see a court official. In September 2009 he was sentenced to 15 months in prison, but all charges except ‘menacing’ Morgan with a weapon were dropped and then the two married just a few months later in November.
Their son and STEM shooter Alec was born a daughter, Mya Elizabeth, in 2003 and supposedly struggled with bullying as a transgender student. McKinney, who turned 16 in April, posted this just 11 days before the attack on his school:
His father had been deported to Mexico in 2010, and divorce papers filed byMorgan in 2014 described Quintana ‘has been traveling illegally between Colorado and Mexico’ since the 2010 deportation. In December of 2016, Douglas County Sheriff’s Department in Colorado was alerted that Quintana was wanted as a fugitive for a domestic violence crime in New Mexico and he was arrested in Castle Rock, Colorado. In April 2017 ICE agents deported Quintana to Mexico for the second time.
Alec McKinney and his friend Devon Erickson are due in Douglas County District Court in Castle Rock, CO this coming Wednesday for the school shooting which lead to the injury of eight students and the death of 18-year-old student Kendrick Castillo who heroically tried to stop them.
