COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – The mother of a person of interest in the Tom Clements murder investigation sent her son a message urging him to turn himself into police.
Deborah Eck told reporters she’s concerned about the safety of her son, Thomas Guolee. In Eck’s message she passionately asked her son to come forward.
“Thomas James, if you listen to this or you see it or somebody tells you, turn yourself in hun, please. I don’t want you dead. I want you turn yourself in, get through all of this crap. Get your time served, get back out with a clean head and do good for you and your daughter. I love you,” she said.
Eck’s last contact with her son was three weeks ago when they made arrangements to see his 5-year-old daughter. They recently made arrangements for another visit where Guolee allegedly wanted to turn himself in to authorities, but he never made the meeting.
Guolee is part of the white supremacist gang the 211 Crew, the same gang Evan Ebel was a member of. Ebel is suspected of killing Clements, the Colorado Department of Corrections director, on March 19. Guolee is believed to be an associate of Ebel’s.
Guolee has an extensive criminal record with charges dating back to 2000. He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who spots Guolee is urged to call 911.
