William Balfour, the prime suspect in the Hudson slayings, will remain in prison while police continue their investigation. Not only that, Balfour’s current girlfriend “told police that he told her he had been involved in the killings of Donerson and Hudson.” According to the Chicago Tribune:
Balfour acknowledged being at the Hudson’s Englewood home on the morning that the actress’ mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were gunned down inside the house, law enforcement sources said. Julia Hudson’s son, Julian, was abducted from the home and his body discovered three days later, shot twice in the head and slumped in the back of Jason Hudson’s Chevy Suburban on a West Side street.
The Illinois Prisoner Review Board also found Balfour to be in violation of his parole from a July 19 drug arrest.
In related news, last week Julia Hudson, Balfour’s wife/ex-wife? and Jennifer Hudson’s sister, posted a picture on her MySpace with the caption, “Now that Jason’s gone I’m the prettiest one,” two weeks after Jason’s murder. Looks like it’s Julia – 1, Jason – 0. Watcha gonna do, Jason? Oh. Right.
