YouThinkWhat has sad news on the tragic double murder in Illinois of Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother.
On Friday afternoon, October 24, 2008 Darnell Donerson, age 57, (pictured at right with Hudson) mother of Jennifer Hudson, was found shot to death in her Chicago home. Jennifer's brother, Jason Hudson, 29, was also found in the home fatally wounded. The deceased relatives of the former American Idol contestant were discovered by a cousin who lives nearby. There are reports that seven year-old Julian King, Donerson's grandson may also have been abducted by the perpetrator of this terrible crime. Hudson, an Academy Award winner for her best supporting actress role in the blockbuster musical film "Dream Girl", has recently released her debut album and is one of the featured stars in the new film "The Secret Life of Bees" On behalf of all of us at YouThinkWhat, we extend our sincere and deepest sympathy to Jennifer Hudson and her family.

UPDATE: Julia Hudson, sister of Jennifer Hudson, made a plea on Saturday, October 25, 2008 for the return of her seven year-old son Julian King. Julia Hudson spoke from the podium at Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church alongside the boy's father, Greg King. She says her son "doesn't deserve this." We will have further updates as this story develops.
