Witness

Balfour Wanted to Split for Miss.

11/11/2008 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

William Balfour called a Mississippi college student the morning of the Hudson triple murder -- so she says -- and asked if he and his "boys" could stay with her after doing "something real big" in Chicago that day.

Rashia Whitlock told investigators Balfour called her at 4:00 AM on October 24, the day the murders occurred, and, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, told her he and his "boys" were "getting ready for something real big that's going to go down tomorrow." Balfour then asked if they could come visit her, says Whitlock, which she refused.

Whitlock also said Balfour asked her whether she knew Jennifer Hudson and, more ominously, if Whitlock could be "loyal." She said she had met Balfour on MySpace.

looks like if he planned it, he planned it on a day he knew school was out, which means he wanted to kill a 7 year old boy.

I hope they close this case soon

See here's the problem when older desperate or retarded women hook up with young boys. For one...he still knows nothing but young kids in his social circle. The world is going to hell over this nonsense.

I don't understand why she waited so long to give this information. I really think that she is just bullcraping just to get her name out there. What a waste!

Shouldn't this crime have been solved in the First 48? It's obvious Balfour is guilty, It's obvious Hudson'd sister had something to do with it too. We're in fo some more surprises. I'll give the police the benefit of the doubt that, being such a "High Profile Case, the information received from so-called witnesses must be scrutinized.

Have we all forgotten that the Police checked William's cell phone records immediately after they found his car parked 2 blocks away at the high school the day of the murders? When they got the tape from the school's security camera, they couldn't confirm for sure that it was William who was seen getting out of the car and walking away so they checked his cell phone records and that's when they reported that someone else must have been involved because his records showed him making a call from a cell tower on the west side of Chicago at the time the car was left there.

So I'm pretty sure they looked at all his calls immediately before and up to the point when they took him into custody on Friday night (the day of the murders). So I'm sure if the Police saw a call going out at 4am, and especially since neighbors reported seeing William's car at the house at 7am, that the Police had contacted this girl already.

It's just getting leaked out.

So I ask again, where are the official charges of murder against William Balfour???

18 days and counting!!!!

Monitor    

I have been following this case like everyone else, Can someone anwser this question for me because I believe I must have missed something: The neighbors said they heard gun shots around 8am or 9am, the lady next door left at 9am, and didn't hear anything. The neighbors also said they hear gun shots all the time. What time did the police say the time of death was? Also what time was Julian shot? with today technogy wouldn't CPD know the exact time of death. I don't believe they was shot that early in the morning. CPD is not giving the time of death. That's why Belford is not being charged.because CPD know where is was at the exact time of death. By his cell phone.

As someone who knows this young lady... She is not doing this to be famous... She never expected her name to be released...She came forward and was cooperative because that was the right thing to do... There are so many people who say nothing for years if at all... You may not agree with how she handled it but attacking people for speaking up is not the way u encourage others to come forward who are witness or may have knowledge of crimes

AND CPD is bogus fa real for releasing her name and so is the news because her name very well could have been left out
