An ellipsis is the omission of a word, phrase, line, paragraph, or more from a quoted passage. . . . Chicago style is to indicate such omissions by the use of three spaced periods . . . rather than by another device such as asterisks.

The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., 13.48.

A period is added before an ellipsis to indicate the omission of the end of a sentence, unless the sentence is deliberately incomplete.
