Three days after the mother and brother of singing sensation and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson were found shot to death, the body of 7 year old nephew Julian King was found abandoned in a white SUV. Approximately 7am yesterday morning the body of a young black child was found in an abandoned white SUV but wasn’t yet confirmed to be that of Julian King. Hudson had offered $100,000 Sunday in hopes of information leading to Julian’s safe return. Confirmation of the boy’s i.d was given when Hudson, 27 confirmed that it was in fact her nephew.
Police have been holding William Balfour – Julia Hudson’s estranged husband – in custody as a person of interest since Friday after the bodies were discovered. Balfour has denied involvement in the killings or the disappearance of the boy, law-enforcement sources said. They are currently reviewing the case and surveillance videos of the surrounding neighborhood where the white SUV was found.
I cannot begin to imagine the nightmare the Hudson family is going through right now, especially Julia Hudson (Julian’s mother). A mother should never have to lose her child that way. How can anyone live with themselves after comitting such a crime. Three family members dead in a single weekend by the hands of another is too much to bare for anyone.
