FOX LAKE, Ill. – Fox Lake Lt. Joe Gliniewicz’s wife Melodie and son D.J. are under investigation for spending village funds on personal items, sources tell WGN News.
According to investigators, Gliniewicz and his wife vacationed in Hawaii where up to $9,000 of money from the police explorer’s fund was spent.
Gliniewicz’s shooting this summer led to a large manhunt, but today the authorities say he carefully staged his own death after committing criminal acts.
Authorities say Gliniewicz was stealing and laundering money from the Fox Lake Police Explorer Post for the past seven years.
