Hudson sister pleads for son’s safe return

The sister of Jennifer Hudson, Julia Hudson is pleading for the safe return of her son after the murder of her mother and brother. Sun-Times:
“I don’t care who you are, just let my baby go,” said Hudson, speaking at the Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church on the South Side. “Please, I just want my son.”

Though her son, Julian King, has been missing since his relatives were found shot to death in their home Friday morning, his mother still believes her only child is alive.

“I have to believe that he’s OK,” said Hudson, 31. “I have that hope that he’s OK, I have that faith that he’s OK.”

Her sister, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson, flew to Chicago from Florida on Friday night to identify the bodies of her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, at the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Donerson, 57, and Hudson, 29, suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and at least one of them also had defensive wounds, police said.
It should be noted that there is a suspect in these murders:
William Balfour, a man suspected in the deaths, was arrested Friday but had not been charged, law enforcement sources revealed.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond, who declined to comment Saturday on a suspect, said no one has been charged.

Bond said investigators were talking to a number of people in custody, but she declined to elaborate. An Amber Alert issued statewide Friday, which remained in effect Saturday, said Balfour was a suspect in the double homicide.

Records from the Illinois Department of Corrections show Balfour, 27, is on parole and spent nearly seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle. Public records show one of Balfour's addresses as the home where Donerson and Jason Hudson were shot.

Balfour's mother, Michele Balfour, said that her son had been married to Hudson's sister, Julia Hudson, for several years, but that they were separated. She also said Donerson had ordered him to move out of the family's home last winter.

Family friends said King is Julia Hudson's son, but authorities would not confirm that.
I hope that boy is found!
