7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning" as you wake up in the west. a stunning turn in the deadly police shooting that terrified an illinois community. cbs news has learned in about an hour officials will announce lieutenant joe gliniewicz took his own life. >> his shooting death in september launched a massive police response. the fox lake community feared cop killers were on the loose. schools were cancelling classes to keep children safe. dean reynolds has more on how the investigation turns. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there were questions from the start of this case. where were the suspects, for example, and why was the local coroner here unable to say publicly whether this was a suicide or a homicide. we're expecting answers this morning. after the initial report that he was killed in the line of duty, after the funeral that drew
7:04 am
thousands of mourners and cops from across the country, after his wife's tear-filled tribute, and after the media reported a story in way that further the narrative of cops under fire. >> when an instance like this happens, it victimizes not just the police department but the whole community. >> reporter: the truth emerged. and it failed to support any of it. sources have now confirmed to cbs news that officer joe gliniewicz's death was a suicide, not a homicide. the story went like this: the 52-year-old lieutenant was on patrol when he was gunned down with his own weapon while pursuing three suspects on foot. >> the investigation into the death of lieutenant gliniewicz has been nothing short of extremely complex. >> reporter: but after a massive manhunt and an investigation which cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, police failed to make any arrests or
7:05 am
identify any suspects. the only clear thing of that the 30-year police veteran was shot twice with his own .40 caliber pistol, once in his protective vest and once in his torso. but who shot him? >> we're considering it a homicide investigation. >> reporter: have you ruled out a suicide? >> nothing is off the table. >> reporter: but what might be off the table for the gliniewicz family are the officer's full pension and benefits. under illinois law, if an officer is killed in the line of duty, a spouse is entitled to 100% of his salary. but if the officer takes his own life, that sum could be greatly reduced. >> dean, a very surprising turn there. thank you very much. a new republican presidential poll this morning shows a virtual tie at the top. donald trump has 24% support in the quinnipiac university survey. ben carson, who led 2 other polls in the past week, is now at 23%. senators marco rubio and ted cruz are next. book buyers lined up to see
7:06 am
trump on tuesday. major garrett is in washington with the latest. tough talk from the billionaire, major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump unveiled his new brook, "crippled america," published by simon and shuster, a division of cbs, then said almost nothing about the book itself. he called on many of the republicans in the presidential race to drop out. he dismissed others running close to him and called the obama economy a bubble waiting to burst. >> our country has no spirit. >> reporter: donald trump began his book tour in a spirit of spite for the gop establishment. >> it's called really the failed establishment because the establishment has let us down. we need a person that has tremendous personal energy. >> reporter: and many of his republican rivals. >> do i think it's time to have some of the other republican candidates drop out? yes. there are too many people. >> reporter: paying special attention to florida senator >> i think that really marco is overrated. all you have to do is look at his credit card.
7:07 am
he is a disaster with his credit cards. >> reporter: and questioning the staying power of ben carson. >> when a man is weak on immigration and wants to get rid of medicare, i don't know how he stays there. >> reporter: trump said carson, a renowned neurosurgeon, lacks experience. carson responded at his own book signing at tampa. >> what would you expect him to say? would you expect him to say, yeah, ben carson has a lot of experience? >> reporter: a new poll shows bush has dropped to sixth. he found himself running from the frontrunner's attacks. >> i actually have good energy every night. >> reporter: trump said federal obama has ordered federal research chair janet yell een t lower interest rates to keep a bubble aloft. >> when those interest rates are raised, a lot of bad things will happen.
7:08 am
>> reporter: that's an economic observation from somebody who has some experience in real estate. >> and somebody who has declared bankruptcy several times too. >> reporter: companies within trump's empire have filed bankruptcy and trump subsequently sued them for damaging his brand. trump says part of his success springs from knowing how to sell himself and manipulate the media. >> thanks, major. ohio voters said no to legalizing recreational medical marijuana. tuesday's vote was 2-1 against the measure. it would have made ohio the most populated state to allow general pot use. adriana diaz is outside the statehouse in columbus with reaction to the vote. adriana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. voters here in ohio overwhelmingly decided against the constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana. the decision came after months of controversy and debate about the group backing the legislation.
7:09 am
>> this is a bump in the road. >> reporter: supporters of issue 3, an initiative to legalize recreational and medical marijuana in ohio, are regrouping after voters strongly shut down the measure on a tuesday. >> never have we seen a proposed amendment this detailed for a small handful of people. >> reporter: state representative mike curtin and other lawmakers opposed the bill, saying it would create a marijuana monopoly in the state, giving control of production to a small handful of wealthy people. the financial backers of a pro legalization campaign called responsible ohio. the law would have allowed them to grow marijuana exclusively at 10 privately-owned locations. >> my issue is not using the state constitution to carve yourself a business exclusive. >> reporter: even some supporters of issue 3 were concerned about its economic model. >> i was really unusually excited about the amendment until i researched it and
7:10 am
realized i'm not a fan of the monopoly situation. >> reporter: responsible ohio is made up of 24 known investors including a former pop star. the group outspent opponents 20-1. >> we have to assess what this means and see if there's a will on the part of folks to go forward. >> reporter: ohio governor john kasich applauded the decision, saying in a statement, at a time when too many families are being torn apart by drug abuse, ohioans said no to easy access to drugs. responsible ohio says the only reason they went the route of investors push to it this on the ballot is because marijuana bills here at the statehouse have stalled for the last 19 years. they said they might try again next year. >> adriana, thank you so much. kentucky voters have elected a republican voter for the second time in 44 years. matt bevin has never held

7:12 am
clean up financial corruption in the vatican. the author of "merchants in the temple." was there 1 thing in particular that shocked you more than anything else you discovered? >> translator: the shock was ongoing. >> reporter: this pope is trying to make sweeping changes and it's going to take a long time. that's because the mess is a big 1. according to the book, it includes a real estate portfolio that's worth seven times as much as the vatican shows on its books. and donations intended for the poor, which actually went into a slush fund to pay vatican running costs. the revelations are based on in part on secret recordings of meetings the pope held with senior cardinals, recordings which were then leaked. in a statement, the vatican said such actions are a serious betrayal of trust granted by the
7:13 am
pope. but in fact, pope francis's request for transparency and accountability may have been given a huge boost by all this publicity. and we have heard from the pope indirectly on this through a tweet from his chief of staff. his words simply, onward with determination and serenity. >> thanks, elizabeth. this morning the wreckage of the russian jet liner in egypt is yielding new clues. the debris points to a catastrophic event bringing down the plane. all 224 people on board died. investigators are expanding the search area. allen pizzey is in couldairo wi the investigation's new focus. >> reporter: good morning. officials involved say the final result will take some time and they're urging patience. the search area has been widened
7:14 am
again to 15 square miles. russian officials said the effort will continue for at least two more days and can be extended if necessary. yesterday's search yielded some small parts of the plane, passengers' personal belongings, and fragments of human remains. 35 bodies have been identified. russian media are reporting that bodies of passengers from the rear section of the plane have different injuries than those sitting in the forward section. the tail section was found three miles from the main fuselage, reinforcing the theory that it broke off in what's known as a tail strike, the tail hitting the ground before the wheels on landing. a bomb could have the same effect. but with no firm evidence of an explosion, other than 2 flashes picked up by a u.s. satellite, russian officials are warning against speculation.
7:15 am
an isis affiliate in sinai continues to claim responsibility. they tweeted, we took it down so die in your rage. final judgment on what happened must include experts from russia, egypt, france, germany, ireland and airbus, all of whom have vested interests of 1 kind or another, norah. >> allen pizzey in cairo, thank you so much. breaking news from east africa where a russian-built cargo plane crashed along the nile river. the plane had just taken off from the airport in south su sudan's capital. honda says it will no longer buy takata-made airbags, after the u.s. find takata $70 million. that fine could grow if takata doesn't abide by a safety

7:18 am
was an uncooked product like lettuce or cilantro or tomatoes or onions. >> reporter: this is at least the fourth food safety issue for the chain since july, when five people became ill after eating at a seattle chipotle. another incident occurred in minnesota, and another in simi valley, california, with some at the beginning of the day positive for norovirus. when asked about the multiple incidents involving chipotle, washington health officials said a broader investigation would have to be done at the federal level. >> i think that in a broader scope, perhaps cdc would be a better agency to look at those kinds of things and determine if there's a pattern associated with that. >> reporter: chipotle said it is bringing in two safety
