UPDATE: Jennifer Hudson’s nephew’s body reportedly found

October 27th, 2008 // 169 Comments

God, I was hoping it wouldn’t end like this: Authorities have found the body of a 7-year-old African-American child in a White Suburban that was owned by Jennifer Hudson’s late brother. The SUV was believed to have been stolen by William Balfour and was reportedly the center of the domestic dispute that ended in the fatal shooting of Jason Hudson and his mother. TMZ reports:

The body was found inside a 1994 white Chevy Suburban. It is the same SUV owned by Jason Hudson, the murdered brother of Jennifer. Before his arrest, cops were looking for William Balfour, the suspect and estranged husband of Jennifer’s sister. The license plate of the Suburban matches Jason’s SUV.
The SUV was found a few miles from the area where cops arrested Balfour.
The SUV is now being towed from the scene. Unclear if the body is still at the scene. No ID so far.
Neighbors say the vehicle has been parked there since Saturday. Balfour was arrested Friday night.
The SUV has been towed with the body still inside the vehicle. The SUV is now at a police garage in Chicago.

I don’t want to get all talk radio on you guys, but I seriously hope they figure out who did this and throw the book at him. And by book I mean the electric chair. You have to have no fucking soul to kill a child. What the hell did he do to you? Just a terrible ending to a terrible series of events.

The Superficial’s deepest, heartfelt condolences to the family of Jennifer Hudson.

UPDATE: Julian King’s Amber Alert has been called off, according to TMZ. Not good.

    It’s the same hatred that causes these cruel and heartless comments that the killer used to end these 3 people’s life. The same hatred that a man uses to call another man white trash, or a and I quote “neeger” is the same hatred that causes senseless killings all over the world, not just here. IT’S THE SAME HATRED. The way I know this? consider the source. All it would take is a threat from another source to come against this nation, say from another country, and all of this ignorance would cease because WE AND I SAY WE would have a common foe. Well, we have a common foe and he’s just laughing at all of it. You all better wake up, there’s not much time left. I didn’t know that there’s this much hatred in this country. People seem as though they can’t wait to say derogatory things about each other, and use any means to do it. WARNING: Be very careful about what you give out and how you do it, for it will be given back to you the same way without mixture in your day of grief and calamity and you wont be able to escape it.

    I know some people are posting horrible things just to get a reaction, but may God forgive you anyway.

    Too bad. . . Illinois has a moratorium on the death penalty.

    “Usually people like that try to find some sort of power on the Internet, I guess, in order to feel important in some way. I’m not mad at them. Just pity them and glad I don’t have to resort to that to feel significant…. My condolences to the Hudson family.”

    If critics are trying to feel important, what are you doing sending condolences when they don’t know you and you know them only through their relative who was on American Idol? What does the family care about you & your condolences?

  17. I just want to add one question here..is it wrong for a rich woman to have a younger guy?? it’s an absolutely extramarital relationship, but more and more services come out on Internet focusing on this kind of relationship, such as AgelessOnly.COM. how do you think of such a thing?

    Jennifer may the lord be with you through this sad time in your life. Keep your trust and faith in the lord like you have been raised to do and he’ll see you through. That’s why your on top now because he’s real. He has taken you from the mean streets of Chicago living in poverty to a Oscar Winning Star! All these racist pigs are cowards hiding behind a computer screen. I feel sorry for you racist cowards that are looking for attention on the internet because you don’t have the heart to say these things to someone in person. Lord I ask that you touch these sick individuals souls because they are heartless and poor excuses for human beings! Please watch out for what you say about others especially at a time like this. KARMA is a mutha and god has a plan for all of you ignorant, worthless, SOB’S! Crime comes in all races and genders and you ignorant bastards don’t have anything better to do. If somthing tragic happens in your family now or in the near future don’t question it you racist pigs. The Lord has come to pay you a visit!!!! You don’t say things like that to someone no matter their race when they have lost their entire family. Blacks and Whites these kind of ignorant people have no lives and they want attention from their racist remarks so ignore them. Kill them with kindness because that’s what hurts a coward the most. I was raised to love and respect all and I will not judge anyone by the color of their skin. God Bless to all and may god touch the lives of all the sick, racist, bastards making ignorant comments. WE LOVE YOU JENNIFER!!!!
