Widow Of Fox Lake Officer Indicted

(Fox Lake, IL) — The widow of Fox Lake officer Charles Joseph Gliniewicz is accused of being an accomplice to the same crimes her late husband is accused of. Melodie Gliniewicz was indicted yesterday on charges of felony money laundering and misuse of charitable funds. The indictment claims she was part of Lieutenant Gliniewicz’s scheme to steal money from the police department’s youth Explorer program. Authorities say the officer died last September in a suicide he staged to look like a murder.
