    IL - Lt. Charles 'Joe' Gliniewicz, 52, found dead, Fox Lake, 1 Sep 2015 - #6



    Last Updated Oct 1, 2015 1:38 PM EDT
    FOX LAKE, Ill. -- The northern Illinois police officer found dead last month was shot with his own weapon, but detectives were still treating it as a homicide investigation based on evidence that included signs of a struggle, the lead investigator said Thursday.

    After vetting the information and concluding it wouldn't harm the investigation, authorities confirmed for the first time that Fox Lake police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz was shot with his own weapon. He was struck by two rounds, one that hit his ballistic vest with the force of a "sledgehammer" and another that pierced his upper chest, said Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Commander George Filenko.

    [...]
    “In layman’s terms the weapon could have been fired by Lieutenant Gliniewicz, or he could have been in close proximity to the weapon being fired,” Filenko said.

    Something that keeps bugging me about this case is the singularity of thought required for suicide. I would think that one would have to let much of what one held dear just fall away To be able to commit such an act I think I would just want to get it over with. The very idea of staging a fake homicide just wouldn't hold much importance once I decided to do it. Maybe joe was different. I just don't know.

    IF he committed suicide, it was not well though out. IF he committed suicide, he was faced with something so very overwhelming. IF it was suicide, suicide didn't even cross his mind until hours before his death. Or even minutes. IF it was suicide, he had gotten some news, or come to a realization of things to come, within hours or minutes of his death. I think the mayor knows if he was suicidal or not within the last 24 hrs of his life. I think he left his house that morning not knowing that would be his last day on earth. IF it was suicide, something happened that morning to make him think there was no way out. IF it was suicide, he had some sort of meeting with somebody before or after he parked his car at the gate. This person has insight as to why he would be suicidal.

    IF it was a suicide,,,
    IMO, a persons last few hours on earth do not define his or hers lifetime achievements. Fund raise the **** out of this, IMO. Because when it's all said and done, there is still a wife and 4 kids that are left coping with a direction in life that they did not decide. They are the true victims here, regardless of any financial gain they are receiving. No matter the MOD to be determined, there will always be whispers behind their backs.

    Locals are blogging and commenting elsewhere too. Most of them are passionate about the case and Lt. Joe but they don't just have one belief or opinion.

    I will say that:
    1. I DO believe that Joe was murdered.
    2. That IF he committed suicide that he had to have been between a mountain and an extremely super hard place.
    3. That if I were to take a poll of all the people from town, I would venture to guess that 75% of them would agree with that article.
    4. I know that there are many people out there who are posting negative things however from what I can see most of them didn't live in or near town.

    People attending fundraisers for Lt. Gliniewicz's family gave more than just money.By being there for the family they offered many tangible expressions of support... they offered their mercy, compassion and sympathy.

    We're living in a broken world,on any given day any of our lives could change drastically or end completely.

    Lt. Gliniewicz's death no matter what the cause is part of that brokenness, the Gliniewicz family's loss is part of that brokenness. Brokenness is something many of us understand all too well.

    When we help each other through the darkness, we receive more than what we give.

    I'm not sure what you mean about letting what you hold dear fall away? Sometimes people who are suicidal believe they are doing it for their loved ones.

    Consider he might have been thinking of his wife and children, and his own personal feelings. What if he or his family believed suicide and mental illness is something to be ashamed of? He dies a hero in their eyes and not a failure. He stages the scene to protect them the best he knows how - both from what might be a painful truth and the financial hardships they might face after his death.

    There are threads all over about people who have committed suicide and in my experience people are generally more likely to believe it was murder, even after all the facts are in. Sometimes immediately people want someone else to blame.

    If you have any idea, what do the townspeople say about who they think may have murdered Joe? I don't doubt that he was well known and appreciated in town, but I think that whatever caused him to end his own life, which I think happened, was not known by the townspeople and that the heroic, upstanding image that was portrayed to them, which they honored, was something he valued and sought to protect, more than life itself.

    That's who he was,all the way, not a speck of cereal.

    In today's world the focus is less on "role models" and more on micro aggressions, participant trophies and non threatening environments.

    "micro aggressions, participant trophies and non threatening environments"
    Would you be so kind as to translate this for me? I really don't understand what it means. I like to think I am fairly cognizant of 'stuff' but this really eludes me. TIA.
