Illinois Police have yet to capture the three men suspected in the murder of 52-year-old Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz, patrol officer. A community youth mentor and father of four, the 30-year police force veteran was just weeks away from retirement.

Lt. Gliniewicz was patrolling Fox Lake, Illinois, a mid-sized suburb around 50 miles north of Chicago. After reporting three suspicious males and calling for backup, Lt. Gliniewicz was fatally shot twice in the head. Seventeen minutes later, Fox Lake police found his body.

The suspects, who fled on foot, have thus far evaded Fox lake police, U.S Marshals, the FBI, and the ATF. Police think the men may have fled to Wisconsin, but as of now, there are no solid leads as to the whereabouts of the suspects.
