(CNN) - The executive director of Colorado's prison system has been found dead in his home, and authorities believe someone killed him, a spokesman for Gov. John Hickenlooper said early Wednesday.
Tom Clements, executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, was found dead at his home in Black Forest, Colorado, spokesman Eric Brown said.
Authorities believe Clements, 58, was killed there Tuesday night, according to Brown. The governor has ordered flags in the state lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset until after Clements' funeral. Arrangements are still being made.
On "Starting Point" this morning, El Paso County Sheriff's Office PIO Lt. Jeff Kramer discusses the investigation.
