Hudson Family Update

William Balfour is set to released on the 23rd of this month, and his new girl is saying he told her he was involved:

William Balfour, the only individual to be identified as a “person of interest” in the shootings of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother, allegedly told his girlfriend he was involved in the murders, sources told the Chicago Tribune. However, Balfour’s girlfriend reportedly told police that he was not involved in the death of Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King. Julian, the son of Jennifer’s sister (and Balfour’s estranged wife) Julia, went missing around the time of the shootings. His body was later discovered in an SUV on the South Side of Chicago. Law enforcement officials reportedly told the Tribune that Balfour allegedly stated that he was at the Hudsons’ home the morning of the murders. Darnell Donerson and Jason Hudson, the mother and brother of Oscar winner Jennifer, were found dead on the afternoon of Oct. 24 in their home on the South Side of Chicago. Balfour had been on parole since his 2006 release from prison after a 1999 conviction for attempted murder until he was reportedly taken into police custody at around 6 PM on the day of the murders. He has not been charged in the case, though he was reportedly returned to prison on a parole violation after being held for 48 hours.The day of the murders, he reportedly missed a meeting with his parole officer and told him that he was “babysitting on the West Side,” according to the Associated Press. The Tribune reported that upon his arrest, he answered officers’ questions until offered a lie-detector test, which he refused to take. Balfour is scheduled to have a hearing before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board at 9 AM on Monday, at which time he could be set free or held for further hearings should the board find probable cause that he has violated his parole or committed a crime.

This story just seems to get more and more bizarre by the day. The Police really need to get on their job here and bring Balfour’s chick in for questioning if it is within the law to do so. As the many different layers to this story continue to unravel, we will be sure to keep you posted.

    Whether its Balfour or someone else, I don’t really care..I just want the person responsible for this to face some serious charges

  • Chi-Town

    Set him free, tha streets are waiting on him.

  • Lady elle

    This investigation doesn’t seem to be going well.

    Black people need to do better & be better.

  • AMELIAG

    if this is true and others were involved she will be dead by weeks end. I still believe it was more than one person so if this is correct then DAMN, the CPD is setting her up by not protecting her.

  • Wife

    at the end of the day, Balfour knows something. and thats a fact!

  • Ms.Officer

    This story reminds me of the one of Tonya Smith and her two boys. now I am reading that Julia came up missing. What’s is up with that? “Where my child is… is where I will be” What about the DNA it was stated in earlier reports that the brother fault his attacker, look very close and make William take the test and Julia too. CPD need to know everybodys where about and do they have an alibi. I watch a lot of television. I pray that this will come to an end soon.

    now why would anyone just flat out tell their girlfriend they had something to do with some murders? that doesn’t even sound right. now i’m not saying he’s innocent at all. i’m just saying i think that girlfriend is pissed off because balfour mother went on nancy grace and said he had another girlfriend besides her. it’s just funny how all of a sudden she seem to know something. and just in time for his hearing today. hmmm.

  • Mississippi Gurl

    They need to bring Julia’s ass in for questioning!!!!!!!!!!! Julia knows more about the motive of this killing than she’s leading on! I dont think that she was directly involved in the murders, but I do think that she knows more about the motive of the murders. Something went down to cause these gruesome murders to occur. I just think that Julia knows more than shes telling!

  • Yea Yea

    Am I retarded? Doesn’t the article say he told his girl he was NOT involved…maybe I’m slow!

  • notimeforfakeones..

    I believe and probably always will, that Julia has something to do with what happened…Jealousy is a powerful part of hate…..

  • s

    @yea yea, you’re fine .. he told ole girl that he was NOT involved .. some people are going to read and think what they wanna … the sad thing is that he STILL has no representation .. can’t understand that ..

  • memchee

    I think ole boyee had sumthin to do with those murders…..set ’em up, pull the trigger, helped orchestrate the set up, carried it out, ……….1,2,3,4,5,or all of the above.

    leave him in jail. Those people who died, knew who they let in and trusted them enough not to worry about getting robbed or killed.

  • Nonya BISHES!

    Julia knows something…her big azz needs to tell the truth.

    I bet she was in on it!

  • CNS

    The police department is just letting everyone involve(maybe Julia) get comfortable so that they can actually mess up and say something(on their Myspace)criminating. Julia will spill the beans soon.

  • Guess what

    @jaime

    i was wondering the same thing

  • just an observation

    Look, again, WILLIAM DID NOT DO IT!!! This was a drug murder! Just watch and see!

  • Macho-in-Paris-France

    HUDSON TRAGEDY would be just a result of a DRUG BEEF between TWO drug(cocaine) dealers. The dealer came to punish(to kill) Jennifer’s brother; but after he did that, he killed ALL WITNESSES.POINT BLANK. You can see that scenari in many movies.

    @Macho-in-Paris-France

    I have to disagree. Like you said, a drug hit kills everyone in the house point blank (very clean)… they don’t take a 7 year old little boy hostage and later kill him. If it were a hit, what was the point of taking Julian… a witness to the crime?

    I believe this was either a kidnapping/ransom situation or a straight up robbery gone bad (Jason was known to keep cash in the home). Jennifer always proved money for her mother, but Julia and Jason were on their own.

    Here’s what I believe went down: Balfour, possibly Julia (I pray I’m wrong on that one), and 2 accomplices hatched a plan for a big payday. Julia reported to work (it’s never been said how she got there), Balfour and accomplices arrived at the home and rang the bell. As Jason approached and unlocked the door for William… he noticed the accomplices and shut the door (before he had a chance to lock it) someone fired a shot through the door striking him. As Jason retreated upstairs to safety, Darnell ran in to see what was happening and was instantly gunned down . Jason was shot and killed in the bedroom. William took Julian out of the house and drove off in Jason’s Suburban while 1 accomplice took William’s car and the other jumped into a third vehicle. The accomplice didn’t want to be caught in William’s car, so he dumped it blocks away from the Hudson home. The school’s security camera caught a time-stamped glimpse of the driver leaving the car… it wasn’t William, fore his cell phone tracked him miles away on the Westside at the exact time the car was being abandoned at the school.

    With a botched robbery/kidnapping ending in a double homicide they couldn’t: 1)request ransom for Julian’s safe return and 2)go back to look for money inside the home. I believe William drove around most of the day with Julian in that vehicle before coming to the inevitible conclusion. He handed the vehicle over to the accomplices and went to his girlfriend’s home where he was arrested later that night. The accomplices ended up stuck with a vehicle that was plastered all over the news and Julian (a witness to the murders). They murdered Julian and planted the gun and vehicle near the girlfriend’s home… trying to implicate William. Problem was several neighbors say that vehicle wasn’t there until Saturday (after Balfour was in custody)and 2 witnesses said they saw a couple of men driving that vehicle early Saturday down the alley where the gun was later retrieved.

    The police are desperately trying to get William to talk but he won’t… he’s probably afraid of retaliation against his family. And if Julia was somehow involved in the initial plot, she’s needs to come clean also… or maybe she already has and doesn’t know who the accomplices were, that’s why they have been in protective custody ever since Jennifer arrived (as well as the Police seizing everyone’s cell phone records). Either way, there’s some cold blooded killers running around, and I seriously doubt that they’re still in Chicago.

    @foxxie.. THE GIRLFRIEND WAS QUESTIONED DAY ONE, AND HAS “ALWAYS” IIMPLICATED WILLIAM BALFOUR…PRIOR TO ANY NANCY GRACE SHOW. I SAW THAT SHOW..IT WAS DAYS LATERE.

    IF YOU READ THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE’S EARLIAR REPORTS IT CLEARLY STATED THAT THEY QUESTIONED THE GIRLFRIEND ON DAY ONE , SHORTLY AFTER ARRESTING HIM AT HER HOME. COMMON SENSE. THIS IS WHY THEY DETAINED HIM AS A PERSON OF INTEREST. SHE CONTRADICTED HIS ABLIBI AND IMPLICATED HIM IN THE MURDERS.…SO GET YA FACTS STRAIGHT. THIS IS NOT ABOUT HER BEING JEALOUS AFTER SEEING NANCY GRACE. THAT’S SILLY.HE WAS ARRESTED AT HER HOME AND I DON’T BLAME HER FOR COOPERATING. IF A THUG AZZ WAS ARRESTED IN MY HOME, I’M NOT GOING TO LIE FOR HIM. IF THEY FIND OUT SHE IS LYING ..THAT IMPLICATES HER.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    trick STFU! learn how to spell first. i know what the hell i saw too. and i don’t care if you did see the show two days “LATERE”. you talk like you on the d@mn case yourself. your facts aren’t even straight sweetheart.

  • Truth

    Investigators said from jump that the girlfriend contradicted his story, and that William was caught in a lie.

    The Nancy Grace interview with dudes mom, happened after that. Dont know how many days, but ole girl did say it before the show.

  • Truth
