CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago police released their investigative files and video Monday of the alleged staged attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett in late January.

Police released nearly 70 hours of video, all connected to the Smollett case.

The article goes on to state the following:

Among the video clips released is one of Chicago police arriving at the actor’s apartment in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood, responding to a 911 call from Smollett’s manager reporting the star had been a victim of a racial and homophobic attack on the street. Inside the apartment, the video, which was blurred by Chicago police, shows Smollett has a rope loosely strung around his neck, which he tells police was put there by his attackers.
