The man who may have killed Tom Clements shouldn’t have even been out of prison. The AP reports court administrators now admit a clerical error on Evan Ebel’s sentences. He was released January 28th, even though he should have been behind bars for about four more years.
Clements, a former Columbia resident and Missouri Department of Corrections officer, was shot last month in Colorado. Ebel was killed soon after that, during a shootout in Texas on March 21st. He was using the same gun that killed Clements.
