Hundreds of mourners gathered in the town of Antioch on Monday for the funeral of a long time police officer, who was killed last week in the line of duty. Fox Lake Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz was gunned down last week while he was following three suspicious men.
The funeral service was held at the high school, which was filled to capacity. Following the service, hundreds lined the streets in a final salute to the veteran officer and father of four. An investigation and search for the suspects continues with evidence still being analyzed including the officer’s weapon and video surveillance. Fox Lake is about 60 miles northwest of Chicago.
