A growing memorial for slain officer as manhunt changes direction

Purple and black bunting hung outside the Fox Lake police station Wednesday morning as the village woke up to no word of developments in the search for three suspects wanted for the fatal shooting of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz.

Tuesday's vast police presence was no longer in evidence near the scene of the shooting along U.S. Highway 12. Helicopters were no longer in the air above the community. Roads that had been blocked off were back open.

Lake County sheriff's Detective Christopher Covelli said the search was no longer being conducted in an organized grid, an approach that used 400 officers Tuesday.

The search was now proceeding with officers checking out specific reports or appearances "of suspicious behavior," he said.

Asked if he could provide more of a physical description of the suspects from what was reported Tuesday — two white males and one black male — Covelli said that was all the information he had.
