Wired PR News – A private funeral service was held on Monday for the slain family of Jennifer Hudson, as reported by the Associated Press. The Oscar winner’s mother, brother, and nephew were killed in a tragic series of events last month.
Twenty-nine year-old Jason Hudson, Darnell Donerson, 57, and seven year-old Julian King were found dead late October from gunshot wounds. Hudson and Donerson were found in the family home, and King was later found in a parked SUV. The estranged husband of Jennifer’s sister, Julia Hudson, has been determined a “person of interest” by authorities investigating the case. William Balfour was arrested on the day of the discovery of the murders on an unrelated charge, and is still in police custody. Balfour has a criminal history, having previously served time for vehicular hijacking and attempted murder. No one has yet been charged with the murders.
Friends and fans of Jennifer Hudson left gifts of condolences around the Hudson family home. A public service was held the day before Monday’s funeral at the Pleasant Gift Memorial Baptist Church in Chicago.
