A wanted fugitive was hiding in the attic of a house for days before authorities took him into custody.

That is what Thomas Guolee's mother told 11 News. She said she did not know about it, until after Guolee was arrested.

Guolee is a person of interest in the Tom Clement's murder investigation.

11 News believes Guolee was found in a home near Vickers and Academy in Colorado Springs. The people who live next door told 11 News that police came to their home and asked if they could check their attic while officers searched for someone. They said while police were searching their home, a call came in that Guolee was caught in the home next door and officers were leading him out.

The El Paso County Sheriff's office said Guolee is believed to be an associate of Evan Ebel. Ebel is the man suspected of killing Colorado Department of Corrections director Tom Clements at his home near Monument on March 19. Ebel is also suspected of killing Nathan Leon a few days earlier on March 17.

The Sheriff's office said Guolee is part of the 211 Crew, the same white supremacist gang of which Even Ebel was a member.

Another person of interest, James Lohr, was arrested in the early morning hours of April 5 after a short chase with Colorado Springs Police. A gun was also recovered. Lohr is also believed to be a part of the 211 Crew and an associate of Ebel.

Investigators are not revealing many details about what they are learning from Lohr and Guolee.
