Hudson Family Update

Posted by Bossip Staff

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.

Balfour May Be Released Monday

Posted by Bossip Staff

The one and only murder suspect for the JHud case, William Balfour, may be released on Monday:

Balfour, who’s only being held on a parole violation in a case unrelated to the murders, could “conceivably” skate if there’s not enough evidence to prove he did violate his parole. He’s scheduled to face the Illinois State Parole Review Board Monday at 9:00 AM. The only way authorities could keep Balfour in custody is if they officially charge him for the Hudson killings between now and Monday, or if they find that he did violate his parole. Thus far, no other suspect has been named in the triple murder of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother, and nephew.

Looks like this was a well planned execution. We do not know what to believe in this case anymore. If he walks, what does that mean for the case? We all know how inept police work is after the first 72 hours of the crime.
