The investigation of a photo leak that depicted Rihanna as battered and bruised after a scuffle with Chris Brown is nearly complete.

This week, two Los Angeles police officers were suspended on suspicion of illicitly releasing the photo.

The officers–one based at a Wilshire area station, the other at a Hollenbeck area station–are said to have been subjected to internal affairs searches of their homes, offices, and lockers in recent days.

If convicted of releasing the photo, the officers will face disciplinary action and a possible charge of identifying a victim of domestic violence.
