Lawsuit Claims DEA Informant Improperly Monitored Albuquerque Man Who Snapped

A man accused of fatally shooting an Albuquerque man last year was an active DEA informant despite his criminal background, according to a lawsuit filed against the agency, the Associated Press reports.

The lawsuit claims the DEA did not properly supervise Jason Estrada, who was killed when he confronted a man accused of sexually assaulting a child.

The man, 31-year-old Edward Quintana, is charged with killing Estrada and criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment.
