Autopsy released on man suspected in killing of DOC chief

DENVER (AP) - An autopsy on the man suspected of killing the Colorado prisons chief and a Denver pizza delivery driver found anti-anxiety medication in his system but no evidence of stronger drugs.

The examination report confirms that Evan Ebel died as a result of a gunshot to the forehead. Texas sheriff's deputies shot and killed him March 21 during a wild chase and shootout.

Authorities say he was on the run after killing Colorado corrections director Tom Clements and pizza deliveryman Nathan Leon.

The killings came soon after Ebel's release from prison. He served eight years, much of it in solitary confinement. His parents say he had behavioral problems since he was a child and prison damaged him even more.

The Denver Post obtained the report Monday through an open-records request.
