Chicago police looking for source of leaks in Jussie Smollett case

Article Image Investigation Sparked at Chicago PD Over Leaked Info in Jussie Smollet Case

Smollett, 36, was accused of orchestrating his own attack, which was initially being deemed a potential hate crime by the Chicago Police Department.

One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked, claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart. Smollett has since been charged with "staging" the attack.

Guglielmi said it would be hard to identify the sources based on the number of people outside the department who may have had access to case details throughout the investigation: evidence technicians from the State Police; prosecutors; the federal law enforcement agencies; even staff in the court clerk's office who processed warrants.

Smollett had claimed that, as he was walking home from a Subway, the popular chain located at E. Lower North Water Street in Chicago, two people yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him, and proceeded to beat him up. Apparently, last Tuesday, she was called in at the end of her shift, was sacked on the spot, and was escorted out of the hospital. She said she never accessed the actor's chart, but simply scrolled past it when looking for another patient's name.

She said she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation. As they fled the scene, Smollett told police they said, "This is MAGA country".

North Carolina's Roy Williams collapses on sideline due to vertigo
The game portion of the night ended on a good note for North Carolina, which was led by Coby White's 28 points and six 3-pointers. The Tar Heels have won 10 of 11 and 20 of 22 against Clemson, though the Tigers claimed the teams' meeting last season 82-78.

He said the attack "was staged, the brothers had on gloves during the (air quotes) "staged attack" where they punched him a little, but as far as we can tell, the scratching and bruising that you saw on [Smollett's] face was most likely self-inflicted". The Nigerian brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, denied sending the letter.

When Smollett wrote the alleged check for $3500 days before the "attack", the memo line allegedly read, "5 weeks training nutrition plan".

Jussie Smollett stirred up controversy when he was listed as a suspect in his own apparent attack and arrested as a result.

While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.
