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.

Who took Julia to work if her brother Jason was her "ride" to work? Jason was home...or did he drop her off, and go back home? Why was she working, and there was no school that day?

Did anyone notice that little Julian was throwing up gang signs in some of his photos that have been posted? I've noticed them, and believe that the heinous crime committed was gang, and drug related.

gemcity that is the same thing I said. All of the here say is for the birds. His conviction was when he was like 18/19yrs old William and a couple of other teenagers tried to steal a car the owner of the car jumped on the hood and caused them to run into a tree. Since William was the driver he caught the attempted murder charge. That is why he only did 7years instead of the Illinois normal 30year sentence. Who was Julia driving on her bus that day? Why has she been on MySpace everyday starting the night of the murders accepting friend request and and pictures (of another man not Julian or Jason). Why did she state "If you have beef with me take it up with me. Let my boy go" WTF? Who was she talking to. She was too hurt to go ID her son's body but guess what she wasn't hurt enough not to log on to MySpace and try to justify why the hell she was on everyday. No plea for her child's return either. Instead of hitting the streets she was playing on MySpace. She already knew he was dead. That is why she had not one tear came down her face during that press conference she was doing a lot of fake sniffling. She is soooooooo SUSPECT!

I am suspicious of her too. Maybe this was a plot between her and that monster to get money out of her sister and that loser loss his temper when the victims fought back. I don’t trust her one bit.

Julia is VERY suspicious...I totally agree with believing that she may be involved, and it hurts. I sitll just can't get over the child having to lose his life for greed. But, this has always happened to family members going back to ancient times.

Do you think this shameful event will have any effect on the thug image put out by rap? I'm not blaming rap, but do you think this will have an effect on rap so that it won't be cool to look like a cloned thug anymore? Thoughts?

I am sorry for the loss of life, but the more I see, (Thanks Zen) the more the whole group looks like gangster ghetto trash. What a role model for that young child! They're all complicit in letting him live in that filth and being a party to it! If Hudson's mother didn't want to move out of the "hood", she could've moved for the sake of the child. Obviously, it wasn't a good environment for him to be raised in. And Julia, looks like a fat retard slob, and I too wonder if she was involved. Looking for attention, Julia? Stranger things have happened.

#83 The Whole Group is Trash...you're welcome. I just want people to see how these people really are, and how they live! Julia was right when she made the comment on her myspace page that this whole tragedy was because of her.

#81 Kristin...IGNORANCE WILL NEVER DIE! It doesn't matter!!

It seems like it was a hit on the family...GANG RELATED! It wasn't just fighting over a car...these people are gang members. All you have to do is look at the myspace pages on Julia & "Flex", and the content...photos too!! Oh, and you know which one they are affiliated with by the color RED!

this guy has already been to jail for several years for trying to kill someone among other things he has done, jail will not rehabilitate him, only Jesus can transform someones heart not man and Jesus is exactly who he needs right now and so does everyone else who is living an unrepented life no matter what it is, whether its murder or whatever the case, we all need christ in our lives, and may God be with this man if he killed those people because it is obvious no one else will be.
