The Chicago Polic Department has confirmed that the body found in an SUV on Chicago’s West Side Monday morning was indeed the 7-year old nephew of Jennifer Hudson, Julian King.

This came just one day after Jennifer Hudson and her family offered a $100,000 reward for the safe return of the young boy.

This is truly a tragic turn of events.  The boy disappeared after the mother and brother of Hudson were found shot to death on Friday in their home.

Police have announced that an autopsy was going to take place on Tuesday.

There is no word though on the cause of death, or where he was killed.

An Amber Alert was issued last Friday to try and help find the boy, but there was no luck.

Monday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times broke the news that the body of a young black male was found in the SUV they were looking for.

The only person detained by police thus far is 27-year old William Balfour.  Others may also be involved.
