The suspect involved in a high-speed chase and shootout with authorities in Wise County, Texas, has possibly been identified. Now, Colorado authorities are travelling 700 miles to find out if the same man was involved in the murder of the prison chief earlier in the week.

 

The Denver Post reports this man, 28-year old Evan Spencer Ebel, was identified by an unnamed federal source as the man who led police in South Texas on a chase that exceeded speeds of 100mph. WFAA has more on how the events unfolded.

Ebel was later pronounced dead at a Dallas-Fort Worth hospital. Authorities said the black Cadillac Ebel was driving matched the description of a vehicle seen outside the home of Colorado’s prison chief Tom Clements, and also had Colorado tags.

 

Clements was shot and killed at his home on Tuesday night. According to ABC News, Colorado authorities believe the prison chief was the target of an ordered “hit.”

 

KCNC in Denver reported that items found within the black Cadillac connected the suspect to Clements’ murder and the murder of Nathan Leon, a 27-year-old pizza delivery man. The source said Leon was shot several times on Sunday while delivering pizzas.

 

Sources report Ebel was a part of a white supremacist prison gang, which was founded in Colorado’s Denver County Jail in 1995.
