I think the followings are worthconsidering:

1. Typically, an independent statement following a colon is not capitalized, particularly when it is closely related to the preceding sentence. However, if the independent statement is not closely related or if the writer wiches to emphasize it, a capital letter may be used.

There were fifteen or twenty woman in the room: None of the was his mather. (Legged, at al, 1988.199)

2. Or, if the subsequent statement consists of more than two sentences. (Sorry, I forgot its source since it is additional note I made on the first.)
