    DENVER—A white supremacist parolee suspected of killing Colorado’s prisons chief and a pizza delivery man was released from prison four years early due to a clerical error, a court spokesman said Monday.

    Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, was killed last month in a shootout with police near Decatur, Texas.

    After his death, police said Ebel was a suspect in the murders of Tom Clements, executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, and pizza delivery driver Nathan Leon.

    Ebel was released early due to a paperwork error made by a judicial assistant following his sentencing, the chief judge and district administrator for the 11th Judicial District said in a joint statement. The statement did not say when Ebel was released.

    “The district has undertaken a review of its practices in an effort to avoid a reoccurrence of this circumstance. The court regrets this oversight and extends condolences to the families of Mr. Nathan Leon and Mr. Tom Clements,” Chief Judge Charles Barton and District Administrator Walter Blair said in the statement.

    Clements, 58, was shot to death on March 19 when he answered the door at his home in secluded woods near the town of Monument, 72 kilometres south of Denver. Leon was killed in the Denver area two days earlier.

    Ebel, who belonged to the 211 Crew, a white supremacist prison gang, had served time in Colorado prisons and had been paroled in the Denver area.

    Meanwhile, in Texas, police are investigating the murders of two prosecutors, the latest on the weekend. One of the slain men had earlier suggested the killing of his colleague in January might be connected to their prosecution of white supremacists in the area.

    The part that bothers me is that this guy was let out FOUR YEARS early and it's blamed on a clerical error! Bull-shit his dad is a prominent Attorney in Denver that knows how long the sentences were, and when his son was eligible for release. What did he do instead of notifying authorities of the error, he rented a house for his son to live in. Our Governor stated that his dad (The Attorney) is a close personal friend of his, for some 30 years. Smells like Benghazi but different Idiot Democrats in charge this time. End result was several innocent and decent people lost their lives with no one held accountable.

    That's one way of getting rid of him. A little high on the collateral damage though.
