The death of Fox Lake, Illinois, police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz was “a carefully planned suicide,” Lake County Major Crimes Task Force commander George Filenko said Wednesday. “This staged suicide was the end result of extensive criminal acts that Gliniewicz had been committing.”

Of course if it is proved that Gliniewicz took his own life, it will open up new questions about why a veteran officer would shoot himself.

Facts about the shooting:

  • On the morning of September 1, the lieutenant sent word over his radio at 7:52 a.m. he was pursuing a trio on foot; three minutes later, he requested backup
  • The backups arrived and found Gliniewicz body about 50 yards from his cruiser, police said
  • Gliniewicz was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time he was shot, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation
