Manhunt for cop killer: Fox Lake Police Shooting

Manhunt for cop killer: Fox Lake Police Shooting, Three suspects remain on the lam, and while authorities continue to look for them in connection with a Fox Lake, Illinois, policeman’s death, the search has been called off in the immediate area where Lt. Joe Gliniewicz was slain, police said Wednesday.

This, after investigators marked off a 2-square-mile area across tricky terrain and brought in helicopters, canine units, federal agents, night-vision equipment and body heat sensors. Police cleared every home in the cordoned-off area, while fielding more than 100 tips, Lake County Major Crime Task Force Commander George Filenko told CNN.

The tips are arriving via phone calls and social media from all over the nation, and from as far away as England and Australia, he said, encouraging the public to continue reporting anything suspicious.

“As always, we’re relying on the public,” he said. “All it takes is one tip or good lead to break a case wide open.”

Local authorities are also in talks with the federal government about a potential reward for information leading to the arrests of Gliniewicz’s killers, Filenko said.

The suspects — two white men and one black man — may have left town, or even the state, Filenko said. Their races were the only description gleaned from the “initial radio traffic” between Gliniewicz and dispatchers, he said. Police have no evidence suggesting the suspects are still in the area or traveling together.

Police are canvassing the area and conducting “saturation patrols” in an effort to continue the search and follow up on new leads, Lake County Sheriff’s Detective Christopher Covelli told reporters.

“We’re going to go hand in hand with the residents of Fox Lake to ensure their safety at this time,” he said.
