Post the traumatic family shoot-out, Jennifer Hudson has reportedly gone into hiding
The Oscar-winning actress—who has been left devastated by the fatal shootings of her mother, brother and nephew—is so worried about her own safety she is refusing to leave the undisclosed hotel where she is being protected by bodyguards.
US blogger Liz Crokin alleges, “I can’t disclose where Jennifer is staying—I can just tell you it’s a hotel. She has bodyguards and the hotel she’s staying at has a great security team. She only left to go to the medical examiner’s office on Sunday night.”
Jennifer’s brother-in-law William Balfour, the estranged husband of her sister Julia, has been named by police as the ‘person of interest’ in the case, while other sources admit he is the chief suspect.
The 27-year-old is being held by police on charges of parole violation, and is also being questioned regarding the triple homicide.
Meanwhile, police found a handgun in an abandoned Chicago car park yesterday, which they believe was used in all three shootings.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, officers discovered the weapon less than a block away from where they found the body of Jennifer’s seven-year-old son Julian King in the back of a white SUV.
Jennifer Hudson's sister Julia also recently opened her heart up post the fatal shooting of her seven-year-old son last week.
Julia thanked people for paying tribute to Julian King on her MySpace blog stating, “Thank you for all your loving support. I know some of you have your opinions and you are entitled to that, like why is she logging onto MySpace at a time like this.
Let me tell you why—I was hoping it would be a way to maybe help me get my son, my baby, the son I grew to know and love for just a few months over seven years - that's why. And now for those of you who actually cared, thank you for all your words of encouragement, thank you for your prayers. His little soul is at ease, I take comfort in knowing that Julian is with my mother and my brother and most of all, the Lord.
