Jennifer Hudson's Mother and Brother Found Dead in Chicago Home
« on: 25 October, 2008., 07:18:36 CEST »
The mother and brother of Oscar-winning actress and former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson were found slain in their home on Chicago's South Side Friday, officials said. Police also said Hudson's nephew was missing from the scene.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said the deaths appeared to be the result of domestic abuse.

"We can confirm that there is an ongoing investigation concerning the deaths of Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson," publicist Lisa Kasteler told CNN." Kasteler said she would release no other information about the deaths.

According to the Chigago Tribune, police said a suspect in the double homicide was in custody and was being questioned.

Authorities have also released an Amber alert for Hudson's nephew, 7-year-old Julian King, who was missing from the scene. The boy was believed to be traveling with the suspect but police said the boy was not found with the suspect.

The Cook County medical examiner's office identified the two victims as Hudson's 57-year-old mother and 29-year-old brother. Deputy Police Chief Joseph Patterson said the bodies were found around 3 pm Friday, when a relative found the body of a female shot to death on the living room floor. That relative then called the police, who found the body of a male shot to death in a bedroom.

Hudson rose to fame when she was notably voted off American Idol's third season earlier than expected. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2004 for her role in Dreamgirls, and was most recently seen in the big-screen version of Sex and the City.
