Almost two weeks after "Empire" star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects - and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical.

Police turned it over to an Federal Bureau of Investigation technical assistance team. "Jussie has voluntarily provided his phone records from within an hour of the attack and given multiple statements to police".

Just yesterday, we reported an unidentified person who was a patron at an Irish bar a block from the scene of the alleged attack, said: "It's a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around".

Cops have said they found plenty of surveillance video, but none that captured the incident.

U.S. jury convicts El Chapo on all counts
Guzman, 61, previously broke out of two Mexican prisons before he was captured and was extradited to the United States. Jurors at the USA trial of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin " El Chapo " Guzman are in their sixth day of deliberations.

Still, Guglielmi said the records Smollett provided are indicative of his willingness to cooperate and the department will be following up with Smollett's team for additional data. A source close to the actor told TMZ that that was never the case, however, and that Smollett said that he felt "uncomfortable" surrendering his phone when police "informally asked", but that they never brought up phone records.

Smollett, who is black and openly gay, told police that his attackers doused him with an unknown chemical substance, shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him before looping what police said was a thin rope tied like a noose around his neck.

According to a police report, responding officers found the 36-year-old with a white rope hanging from his neck.

"I've been in this neighborhood five years". That call log will be analyzed and detectives may be in contact with Smollett again should they have more questions. "Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe that justice will be served".

"[Chicago Police Superintendent] Eddie Johnson says [Jussie Smollett] is still being treated as the victim in this case but if the investigation does reveal he made a false report he will be held accountable", he tweeted.

In New York, reporters for the New York Post have spoken to the actor's neighbors, who doubt the attack actually took place. "They have cameras everywhere". They have yet to locate footage of the actual attack.

Last week, The Post traced Smollett's likely route to the underpass from a 24-hour Subway sandwich shop where he bought a tuna sandwich and a salad.
