Veteran Officer’s Death Ruled a Suicide




Police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz was weeks away from retirement — actually, he was past his planned last day at the department’s request — when he was apparently killed in the line of duty.

There was outrage over his death, shortly followed by puzzlement. The Fox Lake, Illinois, police officer was killed by a gunshot to his torso, the coroner reported, but as far as manner of death, nothing could be ruled out — homicide, suicide or accident.

On Wednesday, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office says it will reveal the “conclusive results” of its investigation.

Gliniewicz’s death is expected to be ruled a suicide, a law enforcement official told CNN.

If Gliniewicz took his own life, it will open up new questions about why a veteran officer who by all accounts loved his job would shoot himself.
