William Balfour, the only suspect in the horrific slaying of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and 7 year old nephew could walk free on Monday if authorities do not charge him with something other than the parole violation he is currently held on. The Illinois State Parole Review Board has to rule that he has not violated the terms and conditions of his parole. TMZ.com reports that his hearing is scheduled on Monday morning at 9:00 AM.
While Balfour, estranged husband of Jennifer’s sister Julia Hudson remains in police custody and has been deemed â€œa person of interestâ€ in this case, he has not been formally charged with the murders. Also police apparently lack sufficient evidence linking Balfour to the gun that was found to charge him with any crime at this time. A .45 caliber handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, was recovered in an alley last week by police. Ballistic and forensic tests are reportedly still being run.
Julia Hudson, mother of slain 7 year-old Julian King, continues to log on to her Myspace and blog from time to time. Disturbingly, the picture above was posted this week, with the caption you see below it “Now that Jason is gone I’m the prettiest one”. Very bizarre.
There were quite a few more pictures posted, that were taken on the night before the funeral for her family. Click here to see more of these strange pictures Julia posted and captioned from her partying that night. It seems as though she has some sort of inferiority complex. Some of her previous and current statements on her Myspace imply that her brother and sister were somehow loved more than she was. It seems like Julia’s posting a cry for help as well as attention. Very sad and very strange. The Hudson murders may remain a mystery for longer than we initially thought.
William Balfour hopefully will be charged by Monday with the crime, but if the authorities don’t have enough evidence right now, he’ll be back on the streets. Snarkista hopes that the forensic testing currently being done will quickly lead to an arrest in this horrible tragedy.
