Jussie Smollett – Police Open Internal Investigation After “Inaccurate” Info Leaked to The Media
There has been a new twist in the Jussie Smollett case. On Thursday, Chicago PD reportedly opened an internal investigation into the detectives working the Smollett case. As previously reported, Northwestern Memorial Hospital fired staff workers for illegally going through Smollett’s medical records.
As more and more information became aware to the public, Cheif of Detectives opened the investigation out of concern. Allegedly, there have been several loose lip officers who gave “inaccurate” info in the media, according to reports.
A police spokesman says,
“When there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities.”
“My clients have tremendous regret over their involvement in this situation, and they understand how it has impacted people across the nation, particularly minority communities and especially those who have been victims of hate crimes themselves.”
Since his interview with ABC News, Smollett has particularly stayed quiet throughout every update. As some of the actors friends have come to him in support including Terrence Howard and Queen Latifah. He last spoke about the attack with Robin Roberts in mid February.
