Five days before Evan Ebel is suspected of killing Colorado's prisons chief, his electronic monitoring bracelet stopped working.

But it wasn't until hours before Tom Clements was shot and killed on his doorstep that parole officers went to Ebel's home and noticed he'd taken a large amount of clothing and apparently fled.

Ebel was not a suspect in Clements' death immediately. A warrant was issued for his arrest on parole violations on March 20. The next day, Ebel got into a shootout with deputies in Texas and was killed.

That's when he became a suspect in Clements' killing.

Ebel had been a model parolee until his electronic monitoring bracelet stopped working March 14.
