ELKHART — An officer whom Police Chief Kris Seymore wanted to be fired but who instead was suspended and demoted has gone from his unpaid suspension to a three-month medical leave of absence. The city may get a second doctor’s opinion.

Cpl. Nathan Lanzen, previously a sergeant, received a 30-day unpaid suspension on July 19 because of his involvement in allegedly gaining “complete financial control” of the assets of an Elkhart resident whom the officer’s wife, Cpl. Taryn Lanzen, first met through official police business.
