Julian King still missing
An AMBER ALERT was issued for missing 7 year old Julian King, the nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.
UPDATE I: William Balfour in custody,Suspect in the death of Darnell Donerson & Jason Hudson. William Balfour is the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister.
Balfour has been married to another Donerson daughter, Julia Hudson, for about two years. They had lived together in the Yale Avenue home. But the couple has been having problems, were separated and were planning to divorce, family members said.
Julian is Julia Hudson’s son. Balfour is his step-father. The boy was not with Balfour when police arrested him Friday night, leading to the continued search.
Balfour has been named a suspect in the double murder of Darnell Donerson & Jason Hudson; however, he has not admitted guilt. Balfour has a past criminal record and had spent seven years in jail for attempted murder.
So far, William Balfour has not said anything or admitted any guilt, but the police are still looking for any clues. The situation is so serious, even William Balfour’s MySpace page can be analyzed for any clues or hints.
Although he has not been charged, William Balfour has been taken in as a suspect in the killings and abduction. A number of other people are in custody, but Balfour’s connections to the family and past troubles with the law have made him a more noteworthy suspect.
Balfour had spent seven years in jail for attempted murder, and was married to Hudson’s sister Julia. It is not clear what the nature of their relationship was exactly before yesterday, but Balfour promoted his marriage on his MySpace page.
Jennifer Hudson and her family offered a $100,000 reward Sunday for the safe return of her missing nephew, as investigators looked for forensic evidence near the home where her mother and brother were found shot to death.
