"In the early hours of Tuesday morning, our beloved son and brother, Jussie, was the victim of a violent and unprovoked attack", the statement begins. He returned to his apartment afterward and his manager called police from there about 40 minutes later, Guglielmi said. "We are so grateful that God saw him through this cowardly attack alive".
"While video [footage] does not capture an encounter, detectives are taking this development seriously and wish to question individuals as more cameras are being reviewed", he added.
Guglielmi said there are still many more videos for investigators to collect and go through as they try to get a complete picture of Smollett's walk home. We, as a family, will continue to work for love, equity and justice until it reigns supreme in our nation and all over the world.
