New explosive details are emerging out of the investigation into the claims from Empire star Jussie Smollett that he was the subject of a racial and homophobic attack by assailants yelling Trump campaign slogans.
The wheels of justice began to grind much more quickly after Chicago police discovered the two “persons of interest” that were caught by surveillance cameras on the night of the alleged attacks.
On Thursday police indicated that the two persons had been apprehended at the O’Hare airport and were being questioned.
They were subsequently identified as an extra on the Empire show, and his close friend.
Rob Elgas of ABC 7 Chicago reported that police believe Smollett and the two accomplices staged the attack for a very mundane reason.
“Multiple soucres tell @ABC7Chicago Eyewitness News Jussie Smollet and the 2 men who are being questioned by police staged the attack,” he tweeted, “allegedly because his character was being written out of the show Empire.”

Elgas also reported in a second tweet that Smollett failed to appear at a scheduled interview with police.
The two men are reportedly of Nigerian descent, and their homes were raided by police on Wednesday evening, according to Charles De Mar of CBS Chicago, who spoke to the families of the men.
The police list of items recovered from the scene include bleach and a red hat.
Smollett had vehemently denied the speculationfrom many that the attack was a hoax. It appears he will have to answer to law enforcement about those claims.
Earlier in the investigation a Chicago police representative said that he would face the consequences if they suspected that he had filed a false police report.
