Clements Had Higher Profile In Days Before Death

Although the executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections generally kept a low profile, Tom Clements' name had been in the news in the days just before he died.

His shooting death Tuesday at his Monument home came a week after he denied a request by a Saudi national to serve out the remainder of a Colorado prison sentence in Saudi Arabia.

Clements also recently requested chemicals to execute Nathan Dunlap, convicted of killing four people during a 1993 shooting rampage at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.

And earlier this week, Clements spoke to legislators about the need for more security staff in the department's food service areas.

Last year, a kitchen worker at a state prison was killed and another was injured in an assault involving an inmate.
