Fox Lake Police Officer Staged Suicide To Hide Financial Misdeeds
It turns out that the September 1 manhunt in search of three alleged gunmen responsible for killing a Fox Lake, Illinois police officer was all an elaborate, staged hoax to mislead fellow police officers investigating his death. Lake County, Illinois officials now reveal that Lt. Charles Gliniewicz staged his suicide to look like a murder to cover up tens of thousands of dollars he had stolen to make mortgage payments, pay for personal travel and enjoy adult websites. Lake Co. officials say Glineiwicz knew an audit of the village's funds was underway at the time he staged his own death that would reveal his financial misdeeds investigators now say.
