FOX LAKE, Ill. — Authorities who have released little information in the weeks since a suburban Chicago police officer was found shot to death are scheduled to hold a news conference.

Lake County officials haven't said what information they will discuss Thursday about the Sept. 1 death of Fox Lake Police Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz. But questions have swirled around the investigation — particularly since the county coroner said he has been unable to rule the 52-year-old Gliniewicz's death a homicide, suicide or an accident.

Gliniewicz's body was found minutes after he radioed that he was pursuing three suspicious men in a remote area of the village just south of the Wisconsin state line. Despite a massive manhunt, police have not made any arrests or identified any suspects.

The news conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. today.
