Chicago police looking for source of leaks in Jussie Smollett case

As investigators searched for the truth, they arrested two men in connection with the alleged crime-Obabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo- who were quickly released after police obtained information that claimed Jussie staged the attack.

Chicago P.D. sergeant Rocco Alioto revealed Thursday that the department opened an internal investigation to find out who was behind the leaks to the media in the Empire actor's investigation. A spokesperson stated, "When there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities".

According to CBS Chicago, a nurse, who remains anonymous, said that she was sacked from Northwestern Memorial Hospital last Tuesday for simply scrolling past the actor's chart without actually accessing it.

The workers were terminated for gaining access to the actor's medical chart when he visited the hospital's emergency room.

CBS Chicago reports that one of the nurses says it was a misunderstanding, as she never reviewed Smollett's chart; however she was sacked last week. She's appealing her dismissal and is speaking out because she fears others may have been overzealously fired over the same misunderstanding.

Smollett went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital on January 29 for treatment after what he claimed was an assault perpetrated by two men spewing hateful comments and placing a rope around his neck. The actor said the men yelled racial slurs at him and threatened his life while pouring an unknown substance on him.

Jussie is set to return to. court on March 14th to face felony charges of disorderly conduct for claiming he was attacked on January 29th.

TMZ also reported, "We're told authorities are trying to determine if the pages have the lettering found in the letter".

Jussie Smollett has plead not guilty to filing a false police report, and remains free on bond.

She maintains that she was simply scrolling to look at another patient's name-not Smollett's, and that she may have been fired simply because of the scroll.
