Jennifer Hudson offers $100,000 reward for missing nephew

October 26th, 2008 // 77 Comments

Jennifer Hudson is offering a $100,000 reward for the safe return of her 7-year-old nephew Julian King. He’s been missing since the fatal shooting on Friday of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother. The AP reports:

In a statement Sunday evening from publicist Lisa Kasteler, Jennifer Hudson appealed to the public for its help, offering the reward and asking that any information be given to Chicago police.
“Jennifer and her family appreciate the enormous amount of love, support and prayers they have received while she and her family try to cope with this tragedy and continue the search for Julian,” the statement said.
Chicago police ramped up search efforts for Julian around the Englewood neighborhood, where Hudson grew up, and transferred custody of a “person of interest” in the killings to state authorities.
“Detectives are working 24 hours on this case,” said Chicago police spokeswoman Monique Bond. “There’s a lot of forensic evidence. We have to work the evidence and try and solve this case. Most importantly, we want to find the child.”

Attached are the latest pics of Julian and what he was last seen wearing before he went missing. Authorities believe he’s been taken across state lines, but the murder suspect in custody, William Balfour, is refusing to cooperate with law enforcement. The FBI is now involved with the investigation.

    You know, its so easy to be an a-hole when you’re hiding like a coward behind a keyboard. Why don’t morons go right up to the mother’s face and tell her that?
    Its bad enough that we live in a world where children are killed brutally everyday, bad enough when immature dickwads make fun of it.

    Too late. They’ve found him dead.

    Feeling a tad impotent? Your little tirade is just as empty as the trolls’ comments. Why bother?

    Well, excuse me for voicing my opinion. I didn’t realize i had to go through you first.
    My bad. Next time I’ll do better.

    Negroes always blame everything but themselves for their heinous crimes. They can’t deal with the fact that they cause 80% of the violent crime regardless of income. If it weren’t for humans, the darkies would have a shelf life of 25 years.

    Fuck off, you bastard coward. Go cash your welfare check, you piece white trailer trash.

    #56, the only one who isn’t human here seems to be you.

    This is horribly sad in so many ways.

    Holy fucking shit; ayone that is joking and/or being racist about this is fucking SICK. Seriously, what the hell? The murder of an innocent child is tragic in any context. You guys are the exact reason why our world is so fucked up. Please go check yourself in to a psychiatric ward right now and do society a HUGE favor. Holy shit, some of the comments are fucking disgusting- no wonder such fucking unthinkable and horrible things like this happen every day.

    He would’ve grown up to be a criminal anyway, looks like the taxpayers saved a ton of cash. 95% of coons end up in the correctional system anyway. If only they’d just keep killing each other they’d eventually go extinct. From now on when a darkie kills a Human being, not only they should be executed, but their entire family as well….

  15. Alex

    are you fucking kidding me, people? i was hoping that FOR ONCE i would look on here and see some sort of supportive comments. it’s so strange how everyone on here is apparently better looking and more intelligent then every celebrity in the world, yet they are making fun of them on a BLOG. yeah, we all believe you’re hotter than lindsay lohan and paris hilton. as if that isn’t low enough, a 7 year old boy is killed and you people sit there and type racist jokes and witty little comments about his abduction and death? the fact that you can live with yourself knowing that you’re trying to make light of a child’s death means that, just like the killer, you have absolutely no soul. make fun of spencer and heidi all you want, LEAVE THE KID OUT OF IT.

  16. Queen23

    all of your racist bitches are assholes! So what she’s a celebrity, it’s not about that. The fact of the matter is they were human beings. NO matter who it is what happened was definitely tragic and for Christ’s sake wrong. I hope all of you who have something negative to say burn in HELL which i’m sure you will. You’re definitely a bunch of Stupid, Ignorant, Assholes.

    OBAMA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So Balfour doesn’t want to cooperate with the cops, huh? Give me 15 minutes with him, about 30 ft of nylon cord, a Roto-Tool and some rubbing alcohol and he’ll confess to being on the Grassy Knoll.

  18. The Killer

    When they take me to court I am going to say he had a coronary. Seems like a viable defense right? I mean shit, I almost had one trying to lift his fat ass into the rape van.

  24. Snapple?

    So did the old man at least get half of the reward for finding Julian King in the white SUV or all of it?

    Snapple?

    I wouldn’t say shit to the mothers face. She is a black woman. A ghetto one married to a felon. I could say “Hi how are you today?” and she would go apeshit screaming at me. I’d be better off taunting Tatiana the Tiger. The conversation would be more rational thats for sure.

    “People keep saying things like Jennifer should’ve moved her family out of the hood, but correct me if Im wrong, wasn’t this a FUCKING FAMILY AFFAIR?”

    A nice gated housing community in the burbs would let a thug like Balfour, with a prior count of attempted murder and a fro like this, into it:
