Colo. inmate fantasized about killing prison staff

DENVER (AP) — The parolee suspected in the slaying of Colorado's prisons chief wrote in 2006 that fantasies of torturing and killing prison staff kept him sane during his incarceration.

Evan Spencer Ebel wrote about his fantasies in a letter to someone outside prison. Guards seized the letter in November 2006 and it was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. A prosecutor referred to it in 2008 when Ebel was sentenced to four additional years in prison for punching a guard in the face.

Because of a paperwork error, Ebel served the four years simultaneously with the sentence he was already serving.

Ebel got out of prison early on Jan. 28 and died after a March 21 shootout in Texas. Authorities suspect he killed Tom Clements and pizza deliveryman Nathan Leon last month.
