COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The Colorado prisons chief shot to death at his home last month has been honored in his native state and the college town where he lived for nearly three decades.

 

More than 400 friends, family members and former Missouri co-workers of Tom Clements packed Friday afternoon's memorial service at Woodcrest Chapel in Columbia, where he had been a youth minister.

 

Clements was a St. Louis native who worked for the Missouri Department of Corrections for 31 years before taking the top prisons job in Colorado in 2011. He rose through the ranks from a probation and parole officer in St. Louis to an administrative job overseeing Missouri's 21 adult prisons.

 

Colorado officials are investigating whether a violent white supremacist gang based in that state's prison system was behind the killing.
