He Comes From a Line of Murderers

- By Bossip Staff

More details of this heinous tragedy come to the surface:

William Balfour — the “person of interest” in the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew — isn’t the first Balfour to run afoul of the law. Balfour’s father is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence for murder. His brother served time for drug dealing. Balfour himself has served time for attempted murder and carjacking. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Balfour was a member of the Gangster Disciple Street Gang. Also according to court docs, Balfour told the judge back in 1999 he had a good relationship with his mother until “she gets an attitude.”

People aren’t randomly murdered execution style. Since William was involved with some unscrupulous low lives, he probably owed them money or drugs and when he didn’t pay up, they went after his son who happened to be with his grandmother and uncle. When the truth of the matter finally comes out, the story will likely be something to that effect.

    Jullian was not William Balfour’s son. He’s his stepson.

    Still still still. If that woman had picked a better mate three people would most likely still be breathing.

    Yeah he wasn’t out that long before they got married but apparently they knew one another from before he went to jail. I really don’t think she has anything to dso with it though I think she is just a lost sould dealing with her piss poor decision of letting him in her life. It is a sad situation.

    “Balfour’s father is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence for murder”

    This is clearly a major factor which lead to this young mans life of crime…IT ALL STARTS IN THE HOME

  • BossLady

    Pray for him either way.

  • Isaidit

    What a low life idiot! I’m so sick of these deviants in society! We need to be like other countries and cut hands and shet off when these idiots act out!


    and the stupid mother gets on tv talking about she didn’t raise any murderers. She probably babied him growing up cause he has “good hair” ignoring all the warning signs from teachers and anybody sane in her family. Black women baby their sons toooo much. Its a major issue.

  • Special K

    @ Redd you said a mouth full they are in a paradigm what else do you know? THat is what he was taught all the men in his life in jail or have been to jail and he 27 working on his second go around for a long prison stint.

    Yeah I believe your theory. I’m like why did he steal and sell her car??? Obviously he needed the money.


    My heart still hurts for the hudson family, i just wished she wouldn’t have gave this fool the time of day, you just don’t let anybody around your kids, now 3 people lost their lives because she got low self esteem and settled with anybody just so she can say “I got a man” smdh


    Lil’ Julian was not his son….His step-son…. And yeah when it comes out he will be involved……so flippin’ sad!!!!!!!!!


    My heart still hurts for the Hudson family i just wish she wouldn’t have gave this fool the time of day, you just don’t bring anybody around your kids, now 3 people lost their lives because she got low self esteem and settled with any man that gave her attention just to say “I got a man” smdh

    Figures that he would be following in the footsteps of his father. Black men, please do a better job of raising your children, particularly your sons. If you are a black father who is handling his business in that area, then hats off to you because you are certainly in the minority.


    Why did JHud have to identify her nephew, mother and brother? Where the hell was Julia Hudson? She couldn’t identify her son?! It wasn’t like she was out the state.. I don’t get it. I have this crazy feeling Julia Hudson had something to do w/ this.


    @ REDD

    He man.. you seem really intelligent.. Any thoughts on why JHud and NOT Julia Hudson had to identify Julian.. I mean isnt Julia the mother? Why couldnt she identify her own damn child? any thoughts?


    @ voice of reason

    Hell yeah!! I was thinking the same thing.

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    I can’t wait for this dude to break and confess with his bad ass. I hope that his hard gang bangin’ Disciple ass mans up to his actions. I pray that this dude has a conscious.

  • Miss Take

    …yeah. something is amiss here. I just read cnn’s story on this and apparently, Julia has written on her myspace page regarding this horror. I’m sorry, but logging into my myspace page 3 days after my family’s execution doesn’t strike me as therapeutic.

    I know everybody has their own ways of grieving but… damn! I have a feeling that coward threatened her family in the past. She knew this was coming. From what she wrote on her page, I think she knew this MFer was capable of this.

    @ Incredible

    Well I think it would have been really hard for her to go and see her babies body with a hole in his head and maybe Jennifer felt like she would carry the load I was reading something that stated Jennifer has been remarkably strong and not very eratic with her emotions perhaps she is just taking it all in now and will truly breakdown when it is over. Either way if I commend her for doing it and not sending her sister.
