As previously reported, TMZ said Thursday that Chicago police not only brought Jussie Smollett in for additional questioning, but there are two other men being questioned as “persons of interest.”
One person of interest is another ‘Empire’ actor who flew into Chicago’s O’Hare airport late Wednesday night.
According to TMZ, Chicago police ID’d the two “persons of interest” by tracking their rideshare/taxicab records to track their locations on the night of the alleged MAGA polar vortex attack.
CBS Chicago reporter Charlie De Mar said Thursday that police raided the home of the two persons of interest Wednesday night. Police took bleach, shoes, electronics and more. Both men are of Nigerian descent and appeared on the show ‘Empire.’

Local crime reporters in Chicago claim the Chicago police were slow-playing the case to see if Jussie Smollett was telling the truth.
CWB previously reported that police already had Jussie Smollett’s complete phone records from the a tower data dump given by the phone provider.
When Smollett gave police “limited and redacted” phone records he downloaded on a PDF, all police had to do was look at the phone numbers he deleted — in other words, Jussie Smollett did the detective work for the investigators.
