    The Suburban's plates match the one they were looking for. This is horrible. I hope they hang this idiot up.

    This is so sad. My heart is breaking too. I hope the boy didn't suffer too much, and that the guilty party is found soon and justice comes down on him hard.

    From CNN.com:

    CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) -- The Cook County medical examiner's office is investigating reports on Monday of a child's body found in an SUV in Chicago, a spokesperson for the office told CNN.

    The Chicago Tribune -- citing the medical examiner's office -- reported that the body of a boy was found Monday morning in a white SUV connected with Julian King, the missing nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.

    Police issued an Amber Alert for Julian, 7, who has been missing since Hudson's mother and brother were found dead in their home Friday

    They also asked people to look out for a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban with Illinois license plate X584859.

    Julian is described as being 4-feet-11 and 130 pounds. He was wearing a striped brown polo shirt and khaki pants when last seen, authorities said in the Amber Alert. Watch the police news conference

    Over the weekend, Oscar-winning actress Hudson offered a $100,000 reward for the safe return of her nephew.

    A spokeswoman for Hudson confirmed the reward, the latest development in the investigation of the shooting deaths of Hudson's relatives and abduction of her nephew, Julian.

    Julian King, 7, is Jennifer Hudson's nephew and Julia Balfour's son

    Julia Balfour is Jennifer Hudson's sister and Julian's mother

    Julia Balfour's estranged husband is William Balfour, who is in police custody

    Michele Davis-Balfour is William Balfour's mother

    Jennifer Hudson's mother Darnell Donerson and brother Jason Hudson were found shot to death Friday in Chicago "Please keep praying for our family and that we get Julian King back home safely," Hudson said in a posting on her MySpace page Sunday. "If anyone has any information about his whereabouts please contact the authorities immediately."

    Hudson also posted two pictures of her nephew wearing the brown-and-orange striped polo shirt he was wearing when he was last seen.

    Earlier, Hudson viewed the bodies of her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, the Cook County medical examiner's office told CNN Sunday. They were found shot to death Friday in their South Side Chicago home.

    Police confirm they have taken a person into custody but are not saying who it is.

    News reports, however, say that person is Hudson's brother-in-law, William Balfour. Balfour's mother has also acknowledged her son has been questioned about the shootings.

    Chicago news station WLS reported Saturday that Julian was not with Balfour when he was detained.

    Police say they have transferred the person in custody to the Illinois Department of Corrections for a parole violation.

    According to the Department of Corrections, Balfour, 27, is on parole. He spent nearly seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle.

    William Balfour's MySpace page states that he is married to Hudson's sister Julia and has a stepson. It also says he lives on Chicago's South Side.

    Hudson's sister, Julia Balfour, made an emotional appeal Saturday for the safe return of her son.

    "My greatest fear has already happened, my greatest hope is for having my child. I just want my son," Julia Balfour said. "That's all I have to say. Just let my baby go."

    William Balfour's mother, Michele Davis-Balfour, also urged the public to focus on finding Julian and said her son had nothing to do with the slayings.

    "Out of no means did my son do this. This heinous crime to this family is unbelievable. It's unbearable," Davis-Balfour told WLS.

    Deputy Police Chief Joseph Patterson said the bodies were found about 3 p.m. Friday, when a relative arrived and found the body of a woman on the living room floor. The relative backed out of the house and called police, Patterson said. Authorities found a man shot to death in a bedroom.

    The FBI is working with Chicago police to find Julian, Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis said.

    The FBI was brought in as a precaution because it would be possible to cross state lines in the amount of time the boy has been missing, which would make any abduction a federal crime, he said.

    Neighbors reported hearing gunshots earlier Friday, Patterson said. Authorities found no signs of forced entry to the home and were not sure whether other items were missing. Watch the scene outside the house


    "You've got two people who were killed inside a home. That alone will produce a great deal of evidence," Weis said of forensic evidence at the crime scene.

    Hudson won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Effie in the film version of the Broadway musical "Dreamgirls." She competed on the third season of "American Idol" in 2004, making it to the top seven contestants before being eliminated from the contest.

    This just makes me feel awful! I really hope they find enough evidence to charge Balfour, or if in the slim chance that it wasn't him that they are able to catch who did it.

    CNN is reporting a gun near Julian's body has been found.

    CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) — Chicago police have found a handgun near the area where the body of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew was found.

    Police said they recovered a weapon in an alley within a block of where Julian King’s body was found in an SUV on Monday morning. Aerial footage by WLS of the scene showed an investigator boxing a pistol, but a police spokesman said testing was needed to confirm whether the weapon was connected to the Hudson case.

    Who shoots a kid. Of course all murder is absurd, but why harm the innocent.

    Kids are usually killed when they are old enough to testify. I watch The First 48 on cable and there are a few episodes where kids got killed for being witnesses. In one instance, the police knew this because one young boy lived. One epidsode, which was them most horrific, kids were killed because they could identify their uncle who murdered his brother and a few other adults. It's all very tragic, indeed.
