May we please have a moment of silence for the family of Grammy award winning artist/actor Jennifer Hudson.
The bodies of her mother and brother were discovered Friday afternoon and an Amber Alert was issued for her nephew, who was missing at the time. But as of 10:00am this morning the Chicago Tribune reported that the missing SUV was found with the body of 7 y/o Julian King inside.
"A child's body was found in the vehicle police were looking for in their search for 7-year-old Julian King, the missing nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.
The 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban with Illinois license plate X584859 was found in the 1300 block of South Kolin Avenue around 8 a.m. Live TV shots showed a white Chevrolet Suburban being towed away.
The Cook County medical examiner's office has sent investigators to the scene and said the body of a black boy was found inside, an office spokesman said. The child had not been identified.
A Chicago police spokesman released no information about the discovery but are planning a news conference near where the vehicle was found.
Julian was reported missing and an Amber Alert was issued Friday after his grandmother and uncle were found shot to death inside the family's home in the 7000 block of South Yale Avenue.
If the boy is identified as Julian King, it will confirm detectives' worst fears because a law enforcement source said bullet casings were found in the boy's room on Friday. But, the source said they had not found other evidence of violence in the room."
