The suspect in the killing of the Colorado prisons chief had bomb making materials and instructions for building explosives in his car, Texas authorities said in court papers released on Tuesday.

Evan Spencer Ebel, a 28-year-old parolee from Denver, was killed in a gun battle with Texas police last Thursday after a high-speed chase through Decatur.
 

Police found miscellaneous bomb making materials in a black duffle bag in the trunk of the Cadillac car Ebel was driving, and they also found a document with "apparent bomb making instructions" in a backpack in the trunk, according to a list of evidence recovered in a search of the car.

The court papers released on Tuesday that detailed the items were contained in an inventory related to a search warrant filed in criminal court in Wise County, Texas.
