Bomb-Making Materials Found In Clements' Shooting Suspect's Car

Investigators found bomb-making materials and bloody clothes in the car of a man suspected of killing the Colorado prisons chief.

Documents made public Tuesday show that authorities also found documents from the Department of Corrections, maps and handwritten directions in Evan Ebel's car. Also found were parts of the uniform of a Domino's pizza worker, zip ties and duct tape.

Ebel was killed in a shootout with Texas authorities last week.

Authorities in Decatur sent the items to Colorado agencies investigating the death of corrections chief Tom Clements and the slaying of a pizza deliveryman, whose body was found two days before Clements was killed.

Now, investigators are working to learn if Ebel acted alone.

We've also learned that the investigation has spread to another Colorado city where there was a recent SWAT raid. That raid happened in Denver.

It was at the home of a girlfriend of a gang member who was a part of the same group as Ebel. That gang member was killed a year ago. We don't know what evidence they collected at that home.

Investigators are also trying to nail down a motive in Clements' murder.

We will continue to bring you the latest in this case as we learn it.
