Jennifer Hudson Family Triple Murder Investigation Continues in Chicago

Chicago police investigation of the murder of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew continues.Yesterday the body of Hudson's seven year-old nephew was found along with the vehicle described in the Amber Alert issued last Friday. The child had been shot to death.

William Balfour, estranged husband of Hudson's sister Julia remains in custody for parole violations and as yet has not been charged in connection with the crimes.

Police investigators have not discovered a motive for the crimes although it has been reported a domestic dispute between Balfour, and the Hudson family was ongoing.

There are now two crime scenes in the Englewood section of the city. One is the location where the Hudson matriarch and her son, Darnell Donerson and her son Jason Hudson, were found mortally wounded last Friday at the family's Chicago South Side home. The other crime scene being investigated is the location not far from the family home where the white Chevy SUV and the young boy's body were found. It is also the area where police apprehended Balfour to bring him in for questioning.

On Monday, Jennifer Hudson accompanied by family members, traveled to the Medical Examiner's Office to identify the child's body as that of Julian King age seven years old. An autopsy is expected to be performed today on the youngest of those slain.

More details as they become available in this sorrowful event.
