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.

How mean-spirited. It's not worth criticizing those in such extreme grief just for the sake of theory and gossip. Especially without the investigation being over and all the facts being confirmed! People just can’t wait to point the finger. I hope the person who shared their irrelevant theories is never a victim of public scrutiny because people have no sympathy no matter what the case may be.

Here's a Theory: Julia and Jennifer Hudson have lost three MAJOR family members. There is a hole in their hearts. They are numb and in pain beyond any of us can imagine. It is very unlikely that Julia was behind some plot!

Here's Another Theory: A bad choice in men is a shallow way to explain what happened. Everyone has made a bad choice for a significant other and no one could have predicted what happened!

Another One: It's a SHAME that soooo many people have no education on domestic violence.

Julia, Julia, Julia. Why on God's green earth would you have a convicted felon ( 7 years in prison attempted murder charges), ugly- nappy headed, maniac living in or even near you and your family? I am sure he made promises that he never kept and anything else that would allow him to manipulate you to fulfill his needs. If he did murder your family members - may God save his soul. He is going to jail for life or worse; he will not survive in jail - he is a coward. I pray that he gives his life to Jesus because he is a dead man either way it goes. If he gives his life to Jesus, at least he will die in jail and go go heaven; if he doesn't, (as all who are not saved) according to God's word- he will die and burn in HELL for all eternity. Eternity is forEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEver. Amen

I posted my response on the site where that blog was posted:

Here's Another Theory: A bad choice in men is a self-righteous way to explain what happened. Everyone has made a bad choice for a significant other and no one could have predicted what happened. Have we forgotten that this type of thing happens all the time in so-called middle and upper class families?

Another One: It's a SHAME that soooo many people have no education on domestic violence. It is obvious the ones who are calling the family “suspect” and “trash” have their own ignorance to address.

Does anyone find it strange that the SUV showed up the day after Jen offered the $100,000.00 reward. This car was the object of a search from Friday afternoon and it shows up Monday morning after the reward was offered. It's almost like they were saying no need to offer a reward because he is dead. The only good thing about that car being found was that it put the family out of their misery about wondering where the child was. Someone probably drove that car to that spot sometime in the middle of the night Sunday. If it was only a few blocks from where Balfours girlfriend lived and he was arrested at her house, why did the police not search in that area for the car.It would seem to me that if he was a "person of interest" they would have looked for the car all over that area. I believe someone else drove that car there and then threw the gun in the nearby field. The license of that car was all over the tv, even here in Ohio. I would have been looking at the license of every white Chevy Suburan I saw. We are supposed to believe that the car sat there from Friday morning til Mon morning?

Mothers are not what they use to be Fathers are truly starting to step up in World ... I see a lot of Black men taking the roll of the mothers today .. because mothers want to hang out ..it use to be taboo to think that a mother especially a black mother would do harm to her children..now the so called mothers are just females having babies trying to hold on to a man..that just want a one night stand..please men of the world you are better off with a prostitute than the females that called themselves women... PLEASE MEN PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN FEMALES ARE NOT THE MOTHERS THAT THEY CLAIM THEY ARE MOTHERS OF TODAY WANT NOTHING BUT TO PARTY AND FIND A WORKING MAN THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF THEIR LAZY ASS

Is he now officially a suspect or is he still a person of interest? Which girlfriend is this? His mother said he was seeing two women in addition to still being with Julia. I was hoping someone would have officially been charged by now.

I feel so bad for what happen to the Hudson's family. Jennifer must be going throgh hard times, and I could feel her pain. Who would want to kill a baby. That just shows he has no heart. I'm going to keep them in my thoughts and prayers. The guy who did it deservers life so he could just suffer, and burn in hell.
