Troubling New Details About Disgraced Officer Gliniewicz

Authorities told the public on Wednesday that Joe Gliniewicz took his own life out of fear of being exposed for embezzling money.  

New revelations on Thursday are also troubling. The Associated Press is citing an anonymous police source with saying Gliniewicz tried to find a hit man to kill the village administrator.

According to the AP, police found the information while combing through thousands of text messages in Gliniewicz' personal cell phone.

On Wednesday investigators released a select few of those messages including a conversation where Gliniewicz tells an unnamed person, "if she gets a hold of the old checking account… I'm pretty well f**ked."

The other person suggests the woman could end up being charged with a Dui. Gliniewicz responds, "trust me I've [thought] through many scenarios from planting things to the Volo Bog.

The Volo Bog is a nature preserve about five miles south of Fox Lake.

The AP also reports small packets of cocaine were found in Gliniwicz' office desk and the source suggests they were likely going to be planted on the village administrator.

On Wednesday, Village Manager Anne Marin briefly spoke about the plot, "I want to be very clear on this point, the village fully supports the prosecution of each and every individual who conspired with Gliniewicz and or has engaged in criminal activity that came at the expense of our community, our police department, and those we serve."

Gliniewicz' wife and son are being looked at for helping the once celebrated police officer steal thousands from the Police Explorers program.
