Law enforcement officials are searching for two men potentially connected to the killing of a top Colorado prisons official, warning that they are both armed and dangerous members of a white supremacist gang.
Police are trying to locate James Lohr, 47, and Thomas, Guolee, 31, according to The Associated Press. Both men are said to be members of the 211 Crew, a white supremacist prison gang in Colorado.
The announcement of additional people of interest is the first hint by police that the gang may be more broadly involved in Clements’ murder, but officials reportedly said that Lohr and Guolee are not suspects at this time.
Since then, at least one of the prosecutors on that case has dropped out, citing security concerns. A significant portion of the prosecution’s case rests on the testimony of former gang member Terry Sillers, who the gang has vowed to kill. Sillers has been in police custody since 2011.
