Illinois Cop Staged Death After Committing Suicide

Lawyers for the family of an Illinois officer who authorities say staged his own death to look like others killed him say the family has no comment on that finding and continues to cope with his death.

Attorneys Andrew Kelleher Jr. and Henry Tonigan issued a brief statement Wednesday hours after authorities revealed the findings of their investigation into the Sept. 1 shooting death of Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz.

Their statement doesn’t mention the investigation’s findings but says it “has been another day of deep sorrow for the Gliniewicz family.”
