FOX LAKE, Ill. — The manhunt for three suspects wanted in the killing of an Illinois police officer looks like it's going extend into the Labor Day weekend in one of the state's most popular recreational areas.

The boating and fishing playground known as the Chain O' Lakes normally draws tens of thousands of visitors for end-of-summer fun, but concerns are mounting that tourists might decide to go elsewhere because of the heavy police presence and fear that the fugitives could be hiding somewhere in the lush landscape.

On Thursday, Lake County Major Crime Task Force said it had recovered video from a homeowner's security system that could provide clues in the search for the three men suspected in the slaying of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz.

The homeowner told investigators the video shows three people near the scene of the shooting. The Department of Homeland Security is analyzing the recording.

Search teams have been hampered by the lack of a description of the suspects beyond the vague one that came from the slain officer. He told dispatchers only that he was pursuing three suspicious men — two white, one black — moments before he was shot.
