Investigators looking into whether murder of Texas district attorney is connected to killing of Tom Clements

Investigators in Texas and Colorado are looking into the possibility that the the murder of Colorado Director of Corrections Tom Clements on March 19 and the Saturday murder of a Texas district attorney are connected.

On Saturday night police in Kaufman County, Texas, found District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife shot to death inside their home. Investigators have not released any suspect information.

In January one of McLelland's assistant district attorneys was gunned down and McLelland made statements to the Associated Press that he believed white supremacists may have been behind that murder. Then, in response to the murder of Tom Clements and rumors that the chief suspect, Evan Ebel, was associated with a white supremacists prison gang McLelland said his office had dealt with similar gangs. The FBI also stated that they were looking into whether the January murder was connected to the murder of Tom Clements.

Evan Ebel was killed in a shoot-out with sheriff's deputies around 100-miles from the town where McLelland was murdered.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Department told the Associated Press they are in contact with the Kaufman County Sheriff's Department exploring whether the cases are linked but have not found any evidence.
