FOX LAKE, IL – Each day seems to bring more dirty details about Fox Lake, Illinois police officer Joe Gliniewicz and the latest info is almost enough to make you want to take a shower.

Investigators discovered Gliniewicz had been ripping off the police explorer youth group for years, taking thousands of dollars for personal expenses, travel, and porn sites.

Investigators say he feared a village audit was about to expose him. And that may have led to him ask about hiring a motorcycle gang to kill the village administrator Anne Marrin.

"It's very unsettling,” she told reporters. “Again, my concern is my family.  It's quite unbelievable and almost surreal, I would say."

Now, news reports say investigators are looking at whether Gliniewicz arrange for his mistress, who was recently divorced, to marry his son, who was in the Army, so she could get money and healthcare benefits for her kids and herself.

“But his conduct should not reflect on the men and women who wear the same uniform daily, faithfully, and with integrity,” said village administrator Marrin, showing calm and class amid the dirt and disappointment surrounding this kill seeking cop.
