It's been confirmed on CNN that the body is that of Julian King, the 7 year old nephew of Jennifer Hudson. Let me say the following that I said on another blog... First of all, I also offer my sincere condolences to Jennifer Hudson & her family that such a horrible tragedy happened to them; losing those we love os never easy. But there is a great difference between losing someone to illness or accident & murder or suicide… But I find myself truly shocked at most of the responses I’ve read here & on other blogs… DON’T ANY OF YOU READ/WATCH THE NEWS!? Domestic violence happens far too often in this world every day. It hits ALL walks of life REGARDLESS of race, religion, nationality, gender & sexual preference, age, etc. - The stories I’ve read have been horrible, sickening… All because one person deems the other expendable for daring to be independent & leave their “owner”. In a lot of cases, the perpetrating kills their loved one (wife/lover), & then themselves. In rarer cases, the abuser kills family members in order to have their “target” live the rest of their lives grieving the loss for the rest of their lives. Case in point: a husband, angered that his wife divorced him, took their 3 kids & shot them in front of her before taking his own life. When the bodies were found so was the note: “It’s her fault; SHE made me DO IT!” Again, my sincere condolences to the Hudson family for a tragedy NO ONE should EVER have to go through.

My heart goes out to Jennifer - I mean losing so many of your close family members in one-go and in such a violent way, such tragedy shouldn't befall one person!

The Jennifer Hudson story is just heartbreaking. She seems like such a nice, down to earth girl who is incredibly talented, and what has happened to her is just so sad. I hope justice will be served.

"Do you want fries with that shake?" How much more South side killings can I take? Human life valued less than a Mickey D meal; Witnessing murders at age 8 still gives me chills; Gang violence, drug abuse, my schoolmates gunned down; This little boy's obituary turned my smile into a frown; My broken heart melts, my tears frozen like freeze pops; Human life so devalued and reduced to dirt on a mop; Like J-Hud, born and raised on the South Side of the Chi; Seen so many die beaten and shot to death all I could do is ask why? When will human life become more precious than diamonds and pearls? 'Cause all I see is murder victims-little boys and little girls; Why do the children have to suffer by the hands of a heartless murderer? Seems like life is less valuable than a cheap 99 cent burger. The killing must stop, the children must live and play; Unity is what we need in order to ensure we live to see another day. Life is the reason why we exist in this Universe so wake up; Have faith boys, girls, women and men. In God we must have faith and trust. -Kenyata Truth

That's disgusting that this man would kill 3 people, let alone a 7 year old boy. It's just despicable :cry: Congrats to Dave Grohl and his wife Jordyn! They seem like great parents to their daughter Violet Maye. That's so cool that Bono is doing that for the NYT! And for free too!

:jawdrop: so sad. It gave me chills to hear this today. I feel for Hudson and her sister. I hope they catch the son of a bitch that did this. How can someone even touch a little 7 year old boy? my god... my prayers are with the whole family. :cry:

The worse is that NO ONE in that neighborhood calls the police anymore when they hear shootings, so yeah sadly the community is giving criminals.

I am literally tearing up right now. I'll never understand why there's so much hatred and violence in the world.

Wow. I was really hoping they'd find her nephew alive. I can't believe that this monster did this to their family. That's just awful. TMZ just reported that the body has been confirmed as his. It makes me sick to my stomach. =(

I don't even know what to say. This is awful. I got tears in my eyes earlier when I saw on the news that they found the little boy dead. I was hoping they'd find him alive. Its horrible enough that they killed Jen's mom and brother, but why the fuck would anyone harm a little 7 year old? This is just cruel.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I was praying he would be returned safely. Let's continue to pray for her and her sister. That's a gut wrenching thing to happen.

i saw this on CNN earlier that the body was found and they were waiting to confirm it. that's kind of scary and sooo horrible for the entire family. i hope that jennifer is doing ok. i'm surprised that HSM did so well, but then again, maybe i'm not overly shocked. there's a big following, although i know that my demographic group isn't overly interested. CONGRATS to dave - that's great news! poor Amy - she has been keeping pretty low key lately and now she's ill again. that has to suck! Bono is always getting involved in things like this - i think that it's nice that he's soo well involved in the charity CONGRATS to Amy and her family - i hope that she's resting up!

I don't really think anything about the killer. These things happen so often. But killing little boy is so disturbing. How can someone get that psycho to do that.. =/

Oh lord... Not even a shred of light in this whole story. How could they kill a 7 year-old boy??? It just shows how cruel life can be. Its frightening and devastating.

How can anybody kill anyone, not to mention a seven-year-old little boy? That is just indescribable.

I really hate this word b/c it takes all value away from a humans ability but this dude (presumably the killer) is a real loser...I feel for her and her family....her closest family members are gone so I hope her sister, cousins & friends come together and find a way to get through's so hard and you can't forget and it might get "easier" whatever that means but this is just horrific

so sad that someone could kill a child, i was hoping the nephew was kidnapped for ransom, if anything and returned as soon as the money was turned over

I wish I was friends with her right now, this girl is going to need A LOT of support. The people closest to her are gone. I honestly hope she makes it through this. My thoughts are with her family, in fact they have been all weekend.

Was wishing they'd have good news. It's hard to make sense out of why someone would want to murder any of those people, but especially a little boy. I hope it isn't the brother-in-law, because it seems like it would be tougher to cope with having someone who you loved and let into your home do this. The media should give the family space, because that's a lot to deal with.
