While being informed about this tragedy Jennifer Hudson was in Miami on business. The murders took place in her mother’s home at the 7000 block of South Yale Avenue in Englewood Chicago IL. Jennifer Hudson was on the 3 Season of American Idol who won viewers and the audience with her amazing voice. She has starred in the movie “Dreamgirls” and won a 2007 Academy Award for her spectacular performance. She’s played a role in “Sex and the City” and just released a new movie out this year “The Secret Life of Bees”. Jennifer grew up in Chicago and attended church on Sundays. She worked at Burger King at 19 to make ends meet. She’s came a long way and has to go an even longer way with this tragedy. Jennifer tried to get her mom to move out of the neighborhood. Her mother Darnell had been living there for 20 years. She refuses to leave because she loved and didn’t want to leave her home, family and neighbors.
Family and friends gather at the home the day after the murders took place to show their support and love. Sadly on October 27 a few days later, the body of Julian King was found 14 blocks from the home in the white suburban. The little boy was shot multiple times and left for dead in the truck. William Balfour’s girlfriend is now a suspect. She said that William didn’t do it. He was with her that morning. With the death of their mother, brother and now her son, I can’t imagine what the parents of Julian are going through. To lose your only child in such a horrible way is devastating. Maybe that’s not even the word for what they are going through. I don’t think there’s anything worse then losing a child. Words just can’t describe the feelings and the pain that’s occurs when losing your only baby. He was only 7 years old. This little sweet boy was innocent and he didn’t deserve this. Keep Julia Hudson, Greg King, and the Family in your prayers. This is an unimaginable tragedy for the Hudson family.
