Before a Chicago judge sealed the case against Jussie Smollett, a FOIA request has revealed that Chicago police are in possession of two photos of Jussie Smollett riding in a car with the Osundairo brothers, whom he hired to assault him in a fake attack.
According to the Daily Caller, reports reveal that the Empire actor had the brothers in a car belonging to Smollett in January and that the Osundairo brothers had been questioned by police about the photos. One of the brothers identified the vehicle as Smollet’s:
[One of the Osundairo brothers] was shown 2 large photographs of the vehicle which R/D believed was being driven by Smollett and which [an Osundairo brother] was a passenger in on 25-Jan-2019 and 27-Jan-2019. [An Osundairo brother] identified the photographs as the vehicle belonging to and driven by Smollett.
“[An Osundairo brother] was then shown 2 large photographs of the vehicle which R/D believed was being driven by Smollett and which [an Osundairo brother] was a passenger in on 25-Jan-2019 and 27-Jan-2019. [An Osundairo brother] identified the photographs as the vehicle belonging do and driven by Smollett.”
What’s more, police seem to have proof that Smollett picked up and drove the brothers to the area where the attack was set to take place:
Later on in the file, the records state: “R/D asked [the two Osundairo brothers] the area in which Smollett drove on 27-Jan-2019 after [the two Osundairo brothers] were picked up by Smollett in front of their residence on Ashland Avenue, taking Ashland Avenue to Irving Park Road. Smollett then took Irving Park Road to Lake Shore Drive to the area where the attack would take place.”
For more details on the police reports surrounding Smollett, Bonchie has covered a few more of them.
At this time, police are under court order not to release any further evidence to the public and that all records surrounding the Smollett case be kept confidential.
