Jennifer Hudson's Sister

Frantic 911 Call

Somebody Killed My Mother!

breaking news

Jennifer Hudson's sister made a frantic call to 911, after discovering her mother's body laying on the floor of their home.

Julia Hudson made the gruesome discovery when she came home from work and noticed a bullet hole in the door.  She saw her mom on the floor and ran outside to call 911, not realizing her brother Jason was also dead inside.

Julia also didn't immediately realize her 7-year-old son Julian was missing.  His body was found days later in a parked SUV.

The 911 tape was introduced as evidence in the trial of William Balfour, who stands accused of the triple murder.

TMZ is turning into a run of the mill, icky, nasty, smut reporting site. What happened to the entertainment news and gossip, it's all criminal reporting...why?

Those are some of the worst 911 operators i've ever heard. It sounded like she called a pizza place for the love of mike.

It's too bad she waited until AFTER he killed her whole family to call the police. When you have a husband who is out on parole after serving a 7 year sentence for attempted murder and he makes multiple threats against the lives of you, your child and the rest of your family... you CALL THE AUTHORITIES and have his parole revoked to protect them. You don't keep sleeping with him and hope that he was just kidding.

why the heck the first 911 operators asked her what's the address than they transfer her to a next operators that is asking her the same question? Jeniffer Hudson should have taken her mother out of the ghetto but yet she left her there. "SMH" greed!

That poor woman. Those operators were terrible. No empathy, no listening skills. She might as well have been ordering pizza. Seriously, She tells them someone killed my mother, he repeats it back to her and then says "Does she need an ambulance"?
