Officials in Illinois announced Wednesday that a police officer whose death sparked national outrage two months ago actually died in an elaborate suicide meant to cover up his criminal activity.
"We have determined this staged suicide was the end result of extensive criminal acts that Gliniewicz had been committing," Lake County Major Crime Task Force Commander George Filenko said.
Investigators say they found evidence of theft and money laundering amounting to thousands of dollars.
