Authorities have linked a Colorado parolee to the murder of Tom Clements, a 30-year veteran of the Missouri Department of Corrections that often visited Vandalia’s WERDCC.
Shell casings have been shown to come from the same gun killing Clements at his Colorado home on March 19 that Evan Ebel used in a Texas standoff last Saturday.
Ebel was killed in a Saturday shootout. Colorado investigators are still looking into the reasoning behind Clements’ murder and whether Ebel acted alone.
Clements was working as the director of the Colorado Department of Corrections at the time of his murder, living in Monument, Colo., near Colorado Springs.
