BREAKING: Jennifer Hudson's Brother-In-Law William Balfour ARRESTED For Murders

It was just reported that William Balfour--the estranged brother-in-law of Jennifer Hudson, was arrested for the murders of Jennifer's mother, brother, and nephew.  It's been over a month since the horrific murders took place in the Hudson family home, and William Balfour had previously been held as a suspect and for violating parole.  He was never charged or officially arrested before. But tonight, Chicago police have just officially charged and arrested William Balfour in the murders of the Hudson family.  Story still breaking....

He shouldn't have killed any

He shouldn't have killed any of them, but why did he also kill that little angel. Bless Jennifer and family

I hope they have the right

I hope they have the right man...this dude must be hella criminal to have murdered the people that he once lived with. Jennifer's mother sounded like one of those caring mothers, how do you you murder a family that once put you up, gave you a home, called you family and the child that looked to you as father...something just don't sound right. I'm sure he's a little midget thug, but to murder his own family. I'm not saying it's not possible, but we know the police dept don't always know how to do their jobs and they have no problem putting innocent Black men in prison. I have no love for this dude, but I just hope they got the right one. But if he hung out with killers and low lives, then perhaps he'll just have to take the fall.

She won't let me in the house - stands at the door blocking me out. My mother just lets sleeping dogs lie and has nothing to do with me anymore. I have a bad feeling about that guy and I just don't go over there anymore. I have a 12 year old son and I am afraid the ball is going to drop.

About time. I'm only

About time. I'm only disappointed that Chicago doesn't have the death penalty anymore. He deserves to die for what he did to them ESPECIALLY THAT LITTLE BOY! I mean, how evil can you be to kill an innocent 7 year old child by shooting him twice in the head? There's a special place in the deepest pits of hell for people like him and I can't wait until he gets there.

I hope they have enough

I hope they have enough evidence against this fool.

The evidence on the crack

The evidence on the crack head was this. My father was a skilled carpenter and cabinet maker. He had a lot of specialized expensive carpentry tools in a workshop in the back of the house. He specifically told me to make sure that after he was gone (he knew he was dying) to have the tools appraised and sold. He didn't have a fortune or anything but it was a small legacy for me and my 3 sisters. He also was a hunter and had a lot of nice rifles. After he died, my sister and her boyfriend kept Daddy's shop locked up from us, claiming to be handling the appraisal. The evidence was a huge amount of documentation of pawn shop transactions (Daddy's tools). There was no way a shade tree mechanic would have had those kind of tools. I fault my mother though because she is an enabler. I can't be there. I don'tknow what Julia Hudson's issues were and the bottom line is Balfour is the real criminal, but people have to draw a line in the sand and ifthe crooks won't leave, then we have to.

I like how they've been

I like how they've been keeping the investigation on the low so that they don't jeopardize the conviction! Its okay if it takes time to officially charge someone, as long as you get it right. Sounds like some due diligence was done!!! Remember, there's no statute of limitations on homicide. Just get it right the first time b/c there is a such thing as double jeopardy!!!

I hope they have some actual evidence on this man or a confession and not just trying to pin him because that's whom they have in custody or that's whom they believe did it. We know how it goes sometimes in this country if they can't find somebody, they'll find somebody. MAY GOD BLESS YOU J HUD.

I'm so glad they caught this fool. What an asshole and her sister need her ass kicked as well. Her self esteem must really be low to even mess with a fool with a criminal record like his. How could you kill a whole family and the kids murder was the worst of all. He needs the death penalty for sure and he needs to be put to death soon no delay. I hope they kick his ass everyday in jail....

My prayers go out to Jennifer

My prayers go out to Jennifer and her family for strength and peace, especially during this time of year. I remember losing my mother around the holidays and that feeling of pain, emptiness and hurt that I felt deep down inside. This family has suffered a devastating loss. The hurt never goes away, but it gets better....you will survive.

You know I remember listening

You know I remember listening to his ignorant mother trying to defend his past carjacking/attempted murder conviction saying that he didn't car jack,he was just stealing the car and the owner jumped on top of the car and started choking "my son". How dumb is that? So this maniac just kept driving trying to make the man fall off the car. He rammed into light poles and just went on a vehicular rampage. He is totally crazy. Has to be a crackhead and full of venom and resentment because he probably felt entitled to some of Jennifer's money. Once he was kicked out of the family, he decided with his dumb behind to get back at them all. I believe he killed that baby in cold blood because he wanted to hurt the mom. Even though Julia is a little odd, I know this hurts. He accomplished his goal. He probably knew he would end up in prison anyway like his dad, but he wante to make the Hudsons suffer because he knew with Jennifer's future they would all live better than he would once he was out of the fold and he couldn't let it go.
