Police say Jennifer Hudson‘s mother, Darnell Hudson, 57, and her brother, Jason, 29, were shot and killed in their Chicago home today in an apparent double homicide. Hudson’s seven-year-old nephew Julian King is reportedly missing, and is believed to be with the murder suspect — identified as William Balfour, an African-American male in his late 20′s, who is considered armed and dangerous. According to MTV News:
Balfour had been living at the residence, according to public records, and may have had a romantic relationship with Hudson’s sister Julia, as vehicles are co-registered to both of them. Police said Balfour is believed to be driving either a white Chevrolet Suburban, 1994 model, with the license plate X584859, or a green Chrysler Concord, with the license plate 332K823.
The Oscar-winning actress and singer grew up in Chicago and is engaged to David Otunga, known to VH1 viewers as Punk from I Love New York. Share your condolences …
