Endorsement: Cooper for Lake County coroner
Oct 7, 2016 1:00 AM -
It has not been a quiet four years in the Lake County Coroner's Office. The high-profile investigation into the suicide of Fox Lake Police Lt. Joseph "Joe" Gliniewicz and the Melissa Calusinki case have kept the office in the headlines. Lake County voters will decide between Howard Cooper and Michael Donnenwirth. Cooper, a dentist from Bannockburn, is a member of the federal government's Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team, and helped identify victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Hurricane Katrina.
