Widow of Colorado's former prisons chief frustrated by pace of husband's murder investigation

Share/Save/Bookmark

DENVER — The widow of Colorado's former prisons chief says she's angry and frustrated at the slow pace of the investigation into her husband's slaying.

Lisa Clements tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/1cXvCQw ) she's concerned the agencies involved in the investigation of Tom Clements' death aren't coordinating enough, noting "we have yet to know much more than we knew about his murder within about 48 hours."

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Colorado parolee Evan Ebel killed Tom Clements and Nathan Leon, a Denver computer technician and pizza delivery driver, last March. Ebel fled to Texas, where he was killed in a shootout with authorities.

Lisa Clements says it's difficult to believe he planned, orchestrated and financed the slaying himself.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa says "it's just a very slow process," and investigators are working closely with the Department of Corrections and the FBI.
