Balfour may walk

Posted by gnn1 on Saturday, 8 November 2008

Jennifer Hudson and Julia King must be nervous.

William Balfour, the only suspect in the Hudson/King slayings may be out of jail Monday.  He’s currently held on paraole violations (still unnamed as far as I can tell) and has a hearing Monday to determine if he did violate terms of parole.  If he didn’t, he could walk a free man from the hearing.

Police would have to formally charge him in the triple homicide at that point to keep him behind bars.  Assuming they have evidence to make such a charge legal.

Of course, if Balfour is found to have violated his parole, he returns to prison.

Hudson IDs her family, Balfour in Custody, nephew still missing

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 26 October 2008

Jennifer Hudson has ID’d her family’s bodies, according to Cook County (Ill) Medical Examiner’s office.  Her mother Darnell and brother Jason were shot and killed for unknown reasons a couple days ago, and her 7 year old nephew Julian King is missing and has been presumed kidnapped.  An Amber Alert was issued, and the FBI are involved (the link goes to Julian’s Amber Alert page and contains a photo and vital information.  If you’re in the Illinois area, PLEASE look).

The prime suspect in the killings, William Balfour, has been taken into custody for undisclosed parole violations, but the investigation is ongoing.
