Texas police probe possible white supremacist link to prosecutor murders

Ebel himself was killed two days later in Texas after crashing his car
following a shoot out and car chase with police. So far no links between the
Texas and Colorado murders have been established.

Officers discovered Mr McLelland, 63, and his wife, Cynthia, 65, at their home
on Saturday, where the front door had reportedly been kicked in and piles of
empty shells casings lay by the bodies.

“This is unprecedented. This is unbelievable. This is huge,” one
official told
the Dallas Morning News

As local police, Texas Rangers and FBI agents investigated the crime scene,
Kaufman County district attorney’s office quickly contacted all of its
employees to make sure no one else had been targeted.

Several staff have been assigned security details at their homes.

Weeks before his own murder, Mr McLelland paid tribute to his slain deputy,
promising to find Mr Hasse’s killers and “pull you out of whatever hole
you’re in”.

No arrests have been made following the killing of Mr Hasse, 57, but police
said they believe the murder was carried out by two men who wore black
clothes and bullet-proof vests and escaped the scene in a silver car.

When asked at the time whether he feared for his own safety, Mr McLelland said
he had made some changes to his own routines but “there’s no holes for
me to hide in, and that’s not my style anyway”.

In December, the Texas Department of Public Safety warned that it had “credible
information” that the Aryan Brotherhood was “actively planning
retaliation against law enforcement officials”.

The group’s leaders were said to have ordered “mass casualties or death”
for any law enforcement official who helped bring a string of recent
indictments against its members in Houston.

Neither Mr McLelland nor Mr Hasse are thought to have been involved in the
Houston prosecutions but their office had worked on separate white
supremacist cases in recent years.

The Brotherhood is believed to have formed in California’s San Quentin prison
in the 1960s and now has thousands of members both inside and outside jail.
