I'm very to sorry to say that the body of Jennifer Hudson's nephew has been found dead in the back of a car parked about 10 miles away from his family home.
The oscar winning actress, singer and plus size role model was among family members and close friends who cried and held hands as they identified Julian King from a live televised image at the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
Police said the seven-year-old had been shot like his grandmother, Darnell Donerson, 57, and uncle, Jason Hudson, 29, who had been found dead on Friday.
No one has been charged but the police are holding the boys step father who is being questioned about all three murders.
Despite Jennifer's best efforts, and the offer of a $100k reward for safe return of her nephew, this was not to be and more heart ache has been piled onto Jennifer, her sister, and the rest of the family.
Cook County spokesman Sean Howard said the actress seemed to be coping well, but asked for the public to respect their family's privacy and to keep sending their prayers and support. 'She was just brilliant and strong,' said Howard when describing Hudson's demeanour while she and her family identified her nephew's body.
