Hudson Killings

Did Balfour Have Help?

10/29/2008 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's evidence this morning suggesting there may have been another person involved in the murder of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew.

Investigators have honed in on William Balfour's movements after the killings on Chicago's South Side, according to the Chicago Tribune, and "are trying to determine" if someone else drove the prime suspect to the West Side, where the body of 7-year-old Julian King was found.

Witnesses have told cops they saw Balfour drive a teal Chrysler to the Hudsons' block on Friday morning, and that car was eventually found about a mile away. The SUV in which Julian was discovered ended up about 13 miles away from the Hudson house.

Of course he had an accomplice. This is what I've suspected all along. It doesn't make sense for a guy to shoot two people, then take a child away from the scene, and THEN shoot him too. If he planned to shoot the child, he would have done so at the house with the others. He took Julian because he hadn't planned to kill him, but then his accomplice killed him anyway. I feel that the entire thing was unplanned. :(

This is absolutely disgusting. I pray that the police will handle this investigation very carefully considering ALL possible scenarios. Remembering that Jennifer is a high profile star and other motives may be in play. We do not want any perpetrators to get away with this most disgusting crime. If this guy Balfour has done this to someone whom he claimed to have loved....we would hate to see what he is capable of doing to someone he hates. My prayers are with the family, investigators and prosecutors in this case.

I don't know if someone else helped kill the Hudson's and Julian, but I know SOMEONE drove that truck to the location where it was discovered. This fool was already in custody, so someone else drove that truck, with Julian's body in it, to that location. They also had to hide that truck form public view, you can't miss a big white truck, that's been all over the news. Check out his family.

Save the RED HERRING for the political blogs. We are talking about the blood of three innocent people. One in particular who was only 7 years old.

First of all if you want to talk polotics go somewhere else. Just because someones a democrat does not make someone kill someone. There is a special place for people like that

We should be putting these criminals up for death instead of supporting them for life in a jail that is overcrowded in the first place. If we put the killers and child molesters and rapists and all the other criminals that commit some of these crimes to the death penalty, it might just get rid of a few of these ass holes and who knows what you do with your criminals in Chicago but if it sucks so bad to live there because of all these things, well......move! I dont like my state of South Carolina either. We have some of the dumbest kids in the US to, so what are you complaining about? Its bad everywhere. Its the system that's screwed up and it will stay screwed up until people like you stop complaining online and get off your ass and do something. My state is Republican dominated and so I can blame them!

I think they should look into the lifestyle of Jason or Julia. This murder was to send a message to someone in this family (maybe drugs was involved). It's obvious that Julia has poor judgment when it comes to choosing men.

Whether he had help or not the fact remains that he WAS involved! I was watching Nancy Grace last night *sigh* and William's mother was on the phone with Nancy. This woman is as ignorant as they come. She was very argumentative with Nancy and could not keep her stories straight. She stated that William has two girlfriends and that he was seperated from Julia, that when he was stopped by police before, that the police had planted cocaine in his car!!! Always the victim. The family seems to be gutter black trash!

TO #4- Think!
WHAT THE HELL DOES OBAMA HAVE TO DO WITH THIS TOPIC?!!
You Damn Republicans don't know when to shut up. Is Chicago the ONLY city in America that has a high crime rate, debt, terrible school systems, high taxes, or any of that other BS you stated? NO!!! This is going on ALL over the country, dummy. That's why everyone with good sense, is voting for change, A.K.A OBAMA!! Last I checked, Democrats weren't the ones in power, in the White House. Remember BUSH. He's the reason everything is so screwed up now. Take your thoughts, opinions, etc to the poles.

I just watched the clip from Nancy Grace, the mother told her son she thinks Julia planted the drugs after William told her the police did. She was so disrespectful and she isn't doing her son any favors. She also claims that Jason was dealing drugs out of the house and thats why the family was killed. A 7 year old was killed because he knew the attackers, pure and simple.
