Hudson

ID's Bodies

10/26/2008 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer HudsonThe Cook County Medical Examiner told us Jennifer Hudson showed up to identify the bodies of her mother, Darnell, and brother Jason.

It's "standard operating procedure" for a family member to do this, but that doesn't mean it's easy.

UPDATE: William Balfour is now under the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections. Cops told us the IDOC have taken Balfour for breaking the terms of his parole.

The nature of the violations are unclear, but we're told that although Balfour is in the custody of the IDOC, the "homicide investigation is still active and ongoing."

Solay, you know how who get down? What does internet have to do with this story, all i'm saying is have a little compassion and stop with the dumb sh#t. I can't imagine going through anything worse than losing two in your immediate family, but i'm sure you'll tell me

that's all    

57. First to Carl who said that Julian would have "grown up to be a criminal like his dad" the suspect in custody was Julia's ESTRANGED husband and was NOT Julian's father.

Police work will solve this crisis. There are two theories floating around: William owed drug dealers money and they came in shooting thinking he was in the house; or 2) he killed the family for revenge. And then there's a 3rd: Jason was involved in something that caused his home invasion last year.

Either one, sounds dirty and bad. The have a lot of surveillance cams in Chicago, you better believe the police are looking at car movements and they also have cell phone call records. This will be solved in a few days.

Its a shame, she worked her #*ss off to get herself out of the hood, and her sister, brought it all back home for her. Her sisters "myspace" page is pathetic, no class, nor self respect...

My prayers are with Ms Hudson, and her nephew... her sister, well, she is getting her 15 minutes of fame, sad.....

Her Mom wanted to stay in her home, I can understand that....its her sister that brought all this on, marrying a con with a violent history.....horrific. I pray Miss Hudson can overcome all this and continue with her career, she has talent!
