Kelley escaped from Peak Behavioral Health Services, a facility in New Mexico, and was caught by police in El Paso, Texas on June 7, 2012.


A witness told police that Kelley “suffered from mental disorders and had plans to run from Peak Behavioral Health Services” by purchasing a bus ticket to get out of the state.


Kelley “was a danger to himself and others as he had already been caught sneaking firearms onto Holloman Air Force base,” the witness stated. Kelley “was attempting to carry out death threats” on his superiors in the Air Force.

The report indicates that the incident was put into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center database.


Just two years later, Kelley was able to purchase a firearm in Colorado. He purchased three more guns over the next three years, although he was denied a concealed carry permit in Texas. The USAF took responsibility for his ability to purchase the guns, explaining that they never entered his domestic violence charge into the NCIC database.
