The department of corrections is mourning the loss of executive director Tom Clements.


Corrections' officials and guards from as far away as Morocco are among the hundreds of people honoring the Colorado prisons' chief killed last week while answering his front door.
Those honoring Tom Clements at a memorial service in Colorado Springs Monday include 39 current and former corrections' chiefs as well as guards from 14 states. A delegation of corrections officials from Morocco was also attending, along with Gov. John Hickenlooper and U.S. Attorney John Walsh.
Senior Pastor Matt Heard said of Clements, "We could not be more grateful for a life well lived."
Evan Spencer Ebel is a suspect. He was killed Thursday in a gunfight with Texas authorities.
