Investigators search for links in three killings

Colo. governor orders audit of sentence records

NEW YORK — When Tom Clements, the head of Colorado’s prison system, was shot to death at his front door last month, the killing seemed a planned assassination by a white supremacist gang.

Authorities in Texas say they are looking into the possibility that Evan S. Ebel, the man suspected of shooting Clements, might also have been involved in the fatal shooting of a Kaufman County prosecutor in January. Reports linked Ebel, who according to prison records had a swastika tattoo on his abdomen and ‘‘White Pride’’ inked on his arms, to the 211 Crew, a white supremacist gang that has about 1,000 members in Colorado’s prisons.
