Widow Of Fox Lake Lt. Joe Gliniewicz Files Suit To Have Bank Accounts Unfrozen

(CBS Chicago) — The widow of disgraced Fox Lake Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz is suing Lake County to unfreeze her bank accounts, according to CBS Chicago.

Melodie Gliniewicz is asking that everyone refrain from rushing to judgment about her family, saying through her attorney the truth would come out in time.

But, in the meantime, Gliniewicz says she is unable to pay her mortgage, doctor bills and other family expenses.

She’s asking for a prompt hearing to lift the temporary court order that is freezing her personal checking and savings accounts.

The Lake County state’s attorney’s office says it’s an ongoing investigation and can’t comment.
