Sean McQuinn was shot to death behind his boxing club, late Thurs/early Fri morning. Sad news for a nice man. However it appears, according to police a report, of a drug deal gone bad.

Not trying to disrespect but not sure "nice man" fits if the story in the paper is true. "Shady" sounds more accurate.

Wow looks like this guy lived a double life. Being an active drug addict is a choice. Choose not to use, people.

Maybe it was a drug deal and maybe it was not. Typical sloppy writing, not reporting, actual reporting was lost many years ago. Right now the Chicago Tribune is the only paper that bothered to mention no drugs were found at the scene. If it was a drug deal that McGinn was involved in then deep shame on him but the very least the word "alleged" should be used. While families grieve if facts are not present they should be presented as such.

Thankfully this person charged with killing him wasn't doing business in Lockport liked they tried to a few years ago. Not that anyone knew this or that they could of anyways. Lockport is already in free-fall decline for the last 3-4 years with no direction, having a alleged murderer lurking around the downtown with his pals would have been pretty sad.

This is to all you folks standing judgment in about Sean McGinn. It must be nice to stand in judgement and not know all the FACTS. There were no drugs!!!!!!!! It was a set-up for money!!!!! Sean was a good guy and yes he made a bad choice in this case. No one knows what REALLY happened but Sean. In these hard times maybe he was just trying to survivor. Some people would do strange things to make good for their family but his children don't need your rude opinions. Have a little respect.

I agree with the above post. It is downright gloulish to write about the dead. They can't defend themselves and trying to wreck a reputation of someone that is deceased is truly below the belt!

When I read the story I felt that I would not comment on it. I believe Sean is gone and his family of children remain. Until everything is proven it is not fair to him to comment. His children have to live on and the paper is not the final word. I think it will all be told in the long run. However, I agree it is wrong to comment on the circumstances.

I also think you could at least wait until the guy is buried and think of his family. It is mean to do what some are doing.

I notice some disagrees. You sure have some set of values when you can't wait to pounce on a family after a death. Think of his kids and hold your tongue a bit. What a ghoul!

Sean was not a drug addict a cocaine addict can't run a Buisness, baseball team, or be a half descent person. You can't read the word drug and assume he's an addict.

Someone else should have been thinking about his kids before he got involved in anything that was at all shady. We all have choices and when there are kids they should be made with the kids in mind.

Couldn't wait could you to make those comments? Where was the evidence. The papers based everything on what the killer said. Good source! Same as you! It is a new low on here when you talk about the dead! Shame on you!

How do you know what choice he made? He was executed! There is no evidence. The papers sounded like they sensationalized everything by taking the word of the shooter. Who else gave them the information? I would hate for you to be on a jury where you are innocent until proven guilty. Give the dead a chance, they can't speak for themselves. Give his kids a chance, and don't say he is a drug dealer. The facts will come out. Have a little care for his kids, that you say you do! I wonder!

Drugs weren't found because his partner didn't bring them and planned to just steal the money. Sean believed he was there to buy coke. Alot of wasted talent and even though he did something stupid, he was a great father to his children.

Fine everyone is having hard times. Doesn't man you turn drug dealer and try to score some coke. As far as he knew the coke was suppose to be there that's why he brought the money.

Where did you get your information from the killer? Just as was said, give the guy a chance and don't take the word of the killer. That is what you are doing, sir! You have NO inside information. He was executed! He wasn't just killed. There is no information of substance to back up your words. If so, tell us where. Otherwise, sit back and hold your mouth.

Wow the big protector. Can't tell you how I know because the person will get in trouble for giving the information to me. It's not from the paper.

Don't know where I said anything about him being guilty of anything. I believe this could have been prevented if he was at home with his children where most parents are at that time of night. The truth will come out and unfortunately I think the truth will prove this could have been prevented. I hope I am wrong.
