Fox Lake Illinois police officer Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz shot dead: Authorities leaving no stone unturned to nab killers
The killers of a respected police officer are yet to be apprehended. Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, 52, was gunned down yesterday and since then a huge manhunt has been launched involving helicopters and sniffer dogs.
Nonetheless the three suspected killers are still to be arrested. Local authorities in North Illinois area say that they are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to apprehend the killers who are sought in the killing of the respected police officer.
Latest reports from the area suggest that several helicopters are working to help at least 100 police officers to arrest the killers. Reports indicate that manhunt continues without any pause around the village of Fox Lake. Authorities have said that they will not rest till they actually take out the killers.
It is not merely local officials who are taking part in the manhunt. Latest reports suggest that special police officials have been brought from across the state following the shooting Tuesday morning. Many police officials have been seen in possession of sophisticated arms not usually found in police hands.
The intensity of the search can be gauged by the fact that the government has deployed SWAT teams and as many as fifty police dogs to help the authorities in the search for the suspects. Gliniewicz was found dead as reports emerge that he was actually chasing on foot three male suspects engaged in suspicious activity shortly before 8 a.m. Later his dead body was recovered from a nearby area, though his weapon besides pepper spray were missing.
While talking to reporters at a news conference Fox Lake Mayor Donny Schmit said, â€œToday, not only did Fox Lake lose a family member â€” I lost a really dear friendâ€¦Residents in here knew him as G.I. Joe, and remember him as someone deeply committed to Fox Lakeâ€.
