A major suspect roundup is taking place Thursday following a nine month investigation by the North Metro Drug Task Force. The crime ring involves some suspects whose names have been in the news recently.
The investigation into the slaying of Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements continues, and as investigators continue to pursue all angles they are looking at complaints made by suspect Evan Ebel while he was behind bars.
The ex-convict suspected in the killing of Colorado’s prison chief who was mistakenly released from prison four years early slipped off his electronic monitoring bracelet, but parole officials didn’t realize he had fled until just hours before the slaying.
Colorado court officials have vowed to review procedures to ensure that a clerical mistake that allowed the early release of a prisoner — who then went on to allegedly shoot the state’s corrections director last month — doesn’t happen again.
The man at the center of a murder investigation of two victims in Colorado and a high-speed chase and shootout in Texas is a confirmed member of a white supremacist prison gang.
