Will, Grundy counties form crimes task force
JOLIET, Ill. – With some of the highest-profile unsolved murder cases in the state, more than 35 suburban law enforcement agencies have formed a major crimes task force. At a news conference Tuesday in Joliet, Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow said unsolved cases such as the 2008 murder of five women at a Lane Bryant store underscore the need for a regional approach. The task force will be made up of 57 officers from 36 agencies in Will and Grundy counties, including the police departments of Bolingbrook and Plainfield. Both suburbs have recent high-profile missing persons cases. Stacy Peterson has been missing from Bolingbrook since 2007, and Lisa Stebic disappeared from Plainfield in April of that year.
