Suspect Confession

In Hudson Case?

11/9/2008 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

William Balfour -- the only suspect in the Hudson triple murder case -- allegedly told his current girlfriend he was involved in the murders of Hudson's mother and brother, according to sources at the Chicago Tribune.

Balfour's girlfriend in turn told police what he told her. The Tribune also cites sources saying Balfour "acknowledged being at Hudson's Englewood home" on the morning Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother were shot to death inside, and Jen's nephew was abducted and later killed.

These are incredible statements considering William -- who has not been charged with a crime -- could be released tomorrow morning pending a decision by the Illinois Prisoner Review Board on whether he violated the terms of his parole.

Chicago police refused to comment.

Are they knocking on Julia's door yet, to arrest her? Please people don't dare write on here that she knew nothing about this, if you do you are just kidding yourself. What a shame...

Something is not right here. This guy is due to be released on Monday due to lack of evidence, and then all of a sudden with no additional evidence, he confesses??????? NO-NO-NO-, it appears that this guy had no attorney and either he was beaten into making this confession, or something else is happening here. SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT????

Why have the police not questioned Julia Hudson, for it is 100% apparent that if this guy was mixed up in those killings, you can bet your but, that Julia was the second person and he was protecting her.

Why is the police keeping Julia name on the down low!!!! I hope this is not a case of being paid off to keep quite, and let a guildty preson go free.

People something is wrong here and if Belfour mothers stands by and let this happen........something is wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

Um Hello???    

shocked22 - You're an idiot and really need to REread the article. Balfour told his girlfriend before he was arrested - you obviously have not followed this case very closely. Please stop spewing your ignorance.

Sounds like he said he had 'something' to with it, was at the house.. how come she didnt' say that he told her he killed them then? Still sounds like this wasn't just him. Hope we get more of the story soon.

Confessing to anybody means nothing more than Balfour could be just plain stupid. Brains aren't for everybody.

Ok. This is confusing. If they recovered the gun, whose fingerprints were on the gun. What was the time frame of the Hudson's murders. Was the nephew killed on the same day, or was he killed after Balfour was arrested. Julia, can they validate her whereabouts when the murders occurred. There is something fishy about this whole story. Technology is too far advanced for them not to have a solid lead to who the killer or killers are. So, I question the Chicago police department. What are you not telling the public? As citizens, we have the right to know the truth. Thank you.

they really wanted to have something on him to hold him on monday. i knew it was coming because they couldn't let him go, he's the only suspect, they had to find something before monday and they did, so they'll still have him in jail untill they finish the investigations. william balfour, you'r not going anywhere.lol if u did, u'll pay, if not, u'll get out just confess!!!!

Remember folks, these are CHICAGO police we are talking about! I hear it's very easy to buy them off. It's been like that since the 1920's.

if you are so SURE about this, perhaps you should contact the police yourself, you could probably save them sometime and man power!
