Jennifer Hudson's mother Darnell Donnerson and 29-year-old brother Jason Donnerson were found murdered on October 24, 2008 at 3 p.m. in their Chicago home by a cousin of the family.
Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew Julian King is missing and an Amber alert has been issued in an effort to find him. The reason for the murders is not clear but police took William Balfour into custody. William Balfour already plead guilty in 1999 to attempted murder and behicular hijacking.
Jennifer Hudson rushed to Chicago from Florida as soon as she could. There's no doubt she's devastated to discover that her brother was shot dead in the chest and her mother shot in the head.
Jennifer Hudson lost her father when she was only a teenager and now she lost the rest of her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with her through this incredibly difficult time.
UPDATE: The body of Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew was found in a 1994 white Chevy Suburban. This is really sad news and we were all hoping it wouldn't end this way.
