William Balfour

Arrested

for Hudson Murders

12/1/2008 7:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110_balfour_bn03-1Chicago cops have arrested William Balfour for the murders of Jennifer Hudson's mom, brother, and nephew.

Balfour was transferred to CPD custody today after they served an arrest warrant. Charges from the Cook County State's Attorney's Office are pending.

UPDATE: We're told the CPD had no new evidence against Balfour -- but they were finally able to scrape all the dirt on him into one pile, which was enough to make the arrest. Also, Balfour is still waiting to be formally charged -- and this could take a day, or up to a week.

I still think that theres more to this than meets the eye...
He had someone help him. The question is WHO?
I also feel strongly that Julia knows more than she is letting on. She may not have committed the acts but she knows something.

Jennifer i guess his arrest will help to bring some closure to all the turmoil you have been going through.
Just look at this guy he looks like the image of a criminal.
i am sure her mother fed him, as we say in the Caribbean the same dog you feed with those hands will turn around and bite you.
I trust the judge will loss his ass in Jail.....
God be you and your family jennifer.

Thank you Lord! That had to be the most sickening feeling, to think of someone getting off for murder. If He did not do it, than God help him to get off, if he did than God help him!

And a black dude raped and killed the Arkansas journalist "Anne Pressly". Didn't see a TMZ article on it.

Where is the reporting on black on white crime? Nowhere.

Why are celebrity mug shots under this guy? He killed a celebrity's family. He's not a celebrity.
