Police Officer Michael Flisk, 46, was fatally shot in the line of duty on November 26, 2010, while processing the crime scene from a burglary that had occurred sometime earlier.
The burglary victim was also murdered during the attack [Find A Grave Memorial# 62222608].
Officer Flisk was an Evidence Technician assigned to the E.T. Team - South for the past 3 ½ years. He joined the Chicago Police Department in January of 1991 and began his career in the 009th District. He also worked in the 004th District and Mass Transit Unit before his promotion to Evidence Technician in 2007. He was a dedicated law enforcement professional and demonstrated a commitment to serving and protecting the city of Chicago.
Officer Flisk received 67 awards during the course of his 19-year career. He earned 55 Honorable Mentions among many other notable achievements highlighting courageous and distinguished service.
Officer Flisk is survived by his wife and four children. Three siblings are also members of the Chicago Police Department.
Michael was involved in the community, organizing block parties with his wife and fixing cars for his neighbors.
He and his wife, Nora, doted on one another. She bought him a Harley-Davidson motorcycle last Christmas. Michael's sons had parked the motorcycle at a neighbor's house, and on Christmas Day they pushed it in front of their home and woke him up to his delight. He loved to ride his motorcycle.
Michael Flisk is the fifth Chicago Police officer to be killed this year from gunfire.
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation kicked in another $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the deaths. Police say the additional money came from an anonymous donor.
That makes the total reward money offered $20,000.
On Monday, a 19-year-old parolee was charged with first-degree murder of Officer Flisk and Mr. Peters.
