Jennifer Hudson's nephew, Julian KingThe unfolding tragedy enveloping Jennifer Hudson’s family took another grim turn when Chicago Police Department Superintendent Jody Weis confirmed that the body found in an SUV on Chicago’s West Side on Monday morning (October 27) was that of Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King.

An autopsy for the boy was scheduled to take place Tuesday, and Weis would not comment on whether the child was killed inside the vehicle or at the home in which Hudson’s mother and older brother were found shot to death on Friday.
