Hudson Devastated After Body Is Found

LATEST: JENNIFER HUDSON is "distraught" after police investigating the disappearance of her nephew found the body of a child.
Seven-year-old Julian King went missing on Friday (24Oct08) following the murder of Hudson's mother Darnell Donerson and her brother Jason Hudson at their home in Chicago, Illinois.
The child, son of Hudson's sister Julia, was staying with his grandmother when the shooting took place, and he has not been seen since.
The Dreamgirls star offered a $100,000 (GBP64,100) cash reward for the youngster's safe return and authorities issued an Amber Alert in the search for the missing boy, launching a statewide campaign to find him.

The car was found on Monday (27Oct08) and has now been removed from the scene in Chicago by authorities. The body had not been identified as WENN went to press.
The vehicle is said to have been reported missing on Friday (24Oct08) and neighbours in the area where it was found reportedly told police it had been parked there since Saturday.
The gruesome find was just a few miles from where Julia's estranged husband, William Balfour, was arrested by police, according to He is currently being quizzed by cops over the slayings, and authorities have described him as "a person of interest".
