Balfour To Remain Behind Bars

Balfour To Remain Behind BarsThe prime suspect in the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew, William Balfour, was denied release from prison today by the Chicago authorities:

The man police have called a suspect in the murder of actress Jennifer Hudson’s family will remain in prison while investigators continue to investigate the triple slaying.

The Illinois Prisoner Review Board ruled this morning that there was reason to believe that William Balfour, 27, had violated his parole. The major reason was that his girlfriend had said that she had seen him with a gun that matched the murder weapon, according to Jorge Montes, chairman of the review board.

In addition, the board said he had violated parole by being in places where drugs were sold. That stems from a June 19 drug arrest, but Balfour’s parole was not revoked at that time.

During the hearing, Balfour protested the use of the evidence that authorities presented to hold him, Montes said. Balfour was not represented by a lawyer. {Source}

The whole situation is still beyond sad. I hope this guy gets locked for life.

    Maybe he is innocent!!! I don’t hope they put him away for life. I hope THEY (POLICE) finds the man who is guilty and fries that man, even if that man is Balfour.

    And no, You shouldn’t judge him by his looks, besides I think he looks okay.

    Imagine what he is going through right now if he is innocent of those crimes.
    How would you feel?
