Whatever happened, you know it must have been truly awful, that it was without a doubt something unspeakable. Literally unspeakable, since it seems no one will even say anything about it. Unless they’re saying vague, cryptic, ominous things.
Things like, “I will say there is an ongoing investigation which includes unfortunately our chief of police, who is under investigation.”
That was Mayor Bob O'Dekirk at the end of a city council meeting and he was talking about Police Chief Al Roechner, whom he claims is under investigation but will not disclose what he is under investigation for.
Joliet’s Inspector General Chris Regis later said he was the one conducting the investigation of the police chief, but would not reveal why.
