Jennifer Hudson’s Mother & Brother Shot Dead

Published: Friday 24th Oct 2008 by Sam
Jennifer Hudson's Mother & Brother Shot Dead In saddens us to report that tragedy has struck the household of Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson. According to an increasing number of news outlets, the singer’s mother and brother were killed in Chicago this afternoon. Hudson’s 7 year old nephew is also missing. See the report via Fox News below:

Actress and singer Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death Friday at Hudson’s Chicago home, and police have issued an Amber Alert for Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew.

Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Monique Bond says the deaths appear to be the result of domestic abuse.

Authorities think Julian King was taken from the home by William Balfour, a suspect in the double killing, and they think Balfour fled in a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban.

Sources tell FOXNews.com Hudson is on her way to Chicago.

Deputy Chief Joseph Patterson said a family member entered the home around 3 p.m. Friday, found a woman fatally shot on the living room floor and left to notify authorities. Responding officers found a man fatally shot in the bedroom, Patterson said. There was no sign of forced entry.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office says officials were dispatched Friday afternoon to the house. Sources on the scene tell FOXNews.com police haven’t released to the bodies.

Police tape blocked access to the large, white house, where a crowd had gathered outside.

Hudson grew up in Chicago, and public listings show the address registered to her and her mother, Darnell Donerson. Hudson’s brother is Jason Hudson.

Calls to Hudson’s representative and attorney were not immediately returned.

Our sincerest condolences go out to Jennifer and her entire family. We pray for the safe return of her nephew.

Updates (via TMZ):

UPDATE 1: Police are looking for William Balfour (bottom left), who they claim could be with the missing 7-year-old. According to records, Balfour listed Hudson’s mother’s address as a place of residence within the last year. According to the Illinois Department of Corrections website, Balfour is currently on parole after serving jail time for attempted murder.

UPDATE 2: Lost in all this is Jennifer’s sister Julia, mother of the missing 7-year-old. We’re told she works as a bus driver in Chicago. Her employer told us she worked her shift today. She hasn’t been seen since.

    Other sources say that William Balfour is married to Jennifer’s sister Julia, also the mother of the missing 7 year-old.

    Hearing something like this makes me fearful for my own mother, hell for my own family for that matter.

    Hello there!

    This story is just so very sad.

    I hope that it is also a wake up call to black people to STOP coddling mentally ill relatives and shrugging off their behavior and threats with “he’s trippin” and “she’s trippin”.

    How many black folks will NOT even use the word “mentally ill” to describe the dangerous persons in their own families.

    Let this be a wake up call to stop mimimizing this pathology in our own families.

    I pray for the comfort and healing of this family.

I couldnt believe it I had to jump online and make sure! My prayers are with jennifer and her family and we pray her nephew makes it home safe and unharmed. I have 2 nephews and I couldnt imagine what shes going through. I hope that some form of justice is served even though him getting the death penelty wouldnt even begin to heal any pain the family is going through.

    “Why is her sister working as a bus driver when Jennifer is soooo rich?”

    Don’t assume because someone is famous that they are loaded…. Celebrities are people too and this is a job just like anything else, her being displayed across various magazines is promotion she doesn’t get paid for that. And just because you’re rich doesn’t mean that you’re gonna pay the way for everybody in your family that’s foolishness.

    I don’t think so… That’s your closest relatives. Whom else should you spend your money on? I would never let my mother live in some old house if I had that kind of money. No wonder her mother and brother were shot – that’s entirely her own fault. She had to care about them – now it’s too late.

    I pray her nephew comes back alive. If that was not domestic violence – it is a kidnapping. I wonder if J.Hudson will pay in case it is lol

  57. iam3069 October 26, 2008

    I think its possible that the kid was not kidnapped but rather saved and may have been being abused in some way. Maybe he was rescued and taken somewhere safe and I don’t mean heaven. Maybe it is also a call to Obama to speak on the event if he is truly the most powerful leader in the land. Maybe its also a statement being made the Jennifer Hudson hasn’t been using her money and celebrity wisely. Maybe its not what it seems at all and we are all being made fools of while someone group took matters into their own hands. Maybe tho there was a better way to handle this. I just wish noone had to be murdered ever for the “right” reasons or wrong. I also wanna sya that the African American population and all people should be way more concerned with the financial crisis and way of life in Africa considering thats a real crisis and we are just being dooped into a man made recession here. Its also way deeper than i can express here. I am just sorry i can not make the sacrifice for all man kind that was predicted for thousands of years. If the kid is safer now thats great but the deaths should have been rehabilitations and kidnappings too?

I also hope that they will find the b****** and put him in jail!

    Unless you are her accountant or her business manager I doubt you know any more about her finances than she does. You keep saying with that kind of money but it takes a lot of money to buy a house and I don’t even think Jennifer has her own house.

The Hudson family refused to let Jennifers fame change their way of life! I feel sorry for the SAD individuals who come to this website posting such ignorant comments! If you are gonna post this stuff atleast KNOW WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT!! Regardless of how you think these people live, they didn’t deserve to be murdered this way! Also, LAYOFF the Older sister, her ESTRANGED husband has yet to be charged with a crime. According to reports she put him out months ago, so layoff of her until more facts are revealed!
