Chicago Police Discover Body of Young Boy in Vehicle; Jennifer Hudson and Family Fear Worst

by at . Comments

According to news reports, Chicago police have found the body of a child and are investigating whether it is that of Jennifer Hudson's nephew, Julian King.

The medical examiner has not yet made an ID, but the body is that of a seven-year-old African-American boy, the same age and race as missing Julian.

The vehicle that was found in Chicago with the body inside could be the key in unlocking the mystery behind the double murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, both of whom were slain Friday.

A neighbor who lives a block away from where the SUV was found says he remembers seeing the car on Saturday. During a police press conference, the man came forward and claimed he called cops that day but no one responded.

Meanwhile, two other neighbors say they're sure that the SUV was not there Saturday - meaning it could have been driven and left there sometime during that day.

If true, it would mean someone other than the suspect, William Balfour, drove it there with the body inside. Balfour was arrested Friday and is in police custody.
