Chicago police have released photos of two people wanted as ‘persons of interest’ connected to the alleged hate crime attack on Jussie Smollett.
After combing through hours of surveillance footage from both public and private cameras around the scene, this is what authorities have managed to come up with:
We don’t know HOW these photos are supposed to help identify anybody, but as reported earlier the two individuals are NOT suspects — they’re merely wanted for questioning.
Cops say the two people in the image were walking on New Street near the intersection with E. Illinois Street between 1:30 AM and 1:45 AM. They’re about a block from the Subway restaurant Jussie had gone to Tuesday morning … and roughly halfway between the restaurant and Jussie’s home.
Our law enforcement sources tell us detectives have scoured camera footage in the area and, to this point, haven’t seen any sign of the alleged attack or Jussie’s assailants.
Cops say they want to speak to the persons of interest to determine if they witnessed or were involved in the incident. As you can see from this image … they’ve got their work cut out for them.
