According to TMZ on Thursday, Chicago PD's Chief of Detectives has launched an internal investigation regarding authorities who may or may not have leaked stories to the media. The Chicago PD says there's been a ton of "inaccurate" information surfacing in the media surrounding Smollett's case and now, they're trying to crack down on who the culprit is. "When there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened, and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities", an officer told TMZ.

The new development comes just hours after news broke that dozens of hospital workers in Chicago were reportedly fired for improperly handling Smollett's medical records.

One of the nurses said it was a misunderstanding, and claimed she never even accessed Smollett's chart, but she was sacked last week and believes many other nurses and staffers were fired for the same reason.
