Jennifer Hudson Family Shooting

24Oct08

The mother and brother of actress and singer Jennifer Hudson were found shot to death in their home on the South Side of Chicago on October 24, 2008. The shooting was believed to have resulted from some kind of domestic dispute. An APB has also been put out for Hudson’s 7-year-old cousin, who is missing and may have been forcibly taken from the scene.

UPDATE:

Suspect William Balfour was arrested in connection to the shooting of Jennifer Hudson’s family. Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death in their home on the South Side of Chicago on October 24, 2008. An Amber Alert was issued for 7-year-old Julian King who is believed to have been taken from the scene.

Balfour is being questioned by police but has not been charged. Balfour was married to Hudson’s sister for several years and was ordered out of the home in the winter of 2007 when they were separated. Balfour was on parole at the time of the shootings.

2nd UPDATE:

– Police on Monday found the body of a young boy following a search for Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, who has been missing since Hudson’s mother and brother were slain last week.

Police did not immediately release the boy’s identity but local media reports said a vehicle in which the body was found belonged to Hudson’s slain brother, Jason, 29. Police had issued an alert on Friday saying the boy may have been abducted in that vehicle.

The boy, Julian King, has been missing since Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, 57, and Jason Hudson were found shot dead in Donerson’s South Side Chicago home.
