Authorities: Bomb materials in Colo. suspect's car

Texas authorities said Tuesday that investigators found bomb-making materials in the car of Evan Ebel, the man suspected of killing Tom Clements, the Colorado prison system chief.

A report from the Texas Department of Public Safety said officers found the bomb-making materials in a duffel bag in the trunk as well as instructions on how to make an explosive device.

Texas Rangers also discovered tan pants with apparent blood on them in a cooler.

Clements was shot to death March 19 at his home outside Colorado Springs. Ebel was mortally wounded two days later in northern Texas in a gunbattle with authorities that also left a sheriff's deputy wounded.

    Maybe they'll be able to link him with the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Even though Hoffa was gone before this guy was born. Why not?
