Hudson Murder Suspect's Alibi

Doesn't Add Up

10/28/2008 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

picture-152The case is building quickly against William Balfour, the man police sources have pinpointed as the primary suspect in the murder of Jennifer Hudson's family.

More details are emerging: The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting Balfour's girlfriend -- whose house he was arrested at -- has contradicted Balfour's alibi and cops have caught him in at least one other lie. Police have been tracking him through cell phone records.

A neighbor says a man he believes to be Balfour was seen pulling up to his GF's house around noon on Friday, got out of the car "carrying what appeared to be a bottle of liquor," and was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt.

Balfour is in custody, and we're told he's considered the primary suspect.

Kaites M -- just curious because you bring up valid points...but where did you hear that William and Julia were fighting around 4/5? Do you mean am? I know the bodies were found between 2 and 3 in the afternoon. I don't know how Julia got to or from work that day if Jason was her ride, but he supervisor says she was there -- and that is also in response to why was she working if there was no school. Maybe bus drivers have other responsibilites -- I truly have no idea. But her supervisor said she was there, and there is no reason not to believe that. I am not saying she hasn't made mistakes, but I don't think she can be held responsible for this in any way. Since he had a girlfriend and he and Julia were estranged, it seems like she was taking the necessary steps to get him out of her life. William no longer even lived there with them. He hasn't been convicted so I really don't know, but it sure seems like he is guilty.

Diva that's why i'm struggling with this man supposedly killing them. If you look at her myspace it says "whether i wanted him, i got him" about her son. Now, i know people that talk like that about their kids. They would never kill them. But, with your things you said and that, it's just too much!

This is so bazaar, I hope this is the person, because he’s caught and in their possession. But if he is not, have they been out there still looking and not let it get cold because they have someone they think is the one? Have they determined the time of death of the boy? This is something that can be figured out asap, JH’s mother and brother were found Friday afternoon dead and Balfour has been in custody since Friday evening. The boy had to be dead for over 2 days in order for it to be Balfour, have they determined that???? Why hasn’t this been mentioned??? I don’t know too many unanswered questions.

Does anyone notice that Julia Hudson still have that SON OF A BITCH on her MySpace page. If a person was suspected of harming my child or even a friend, I would not want to see him anywhere. She constantly updates her page but she leaves him on it. There should be a law to prohibit stupid girls from having children. In that case you should be the one laying in the morgue not your Mother or your Son.

# 12, Julia Hudson should be held responsible for this on the level that she should have never allowed this thug the opportunity to penetrate her family fold. He spent 7 years in jail for two charges one of which was "attempted murder" .... Apparently upon his release he was able to secure a position back into their family fold. I would have never let him within 3 feet of my family let alone my precious baby boy. It will most likely be found out later that he was upset with her about something and went on a killing spree that involved 3 innocent people.

For the rest of her life, she will have to live with knowing that her sorry choice in a man is the reason her beloved Mother, Brother and Baby boy are dead. She should have never dealt with that bum ...... !!!!!
