Default Jennifer Hudson Tragedy just gets worse

First her mom, then her brother now this:
CHICAGO, Ill. -- The body of a 7-year-old boy found in an SUV on the South Side of Chicago Monday morning has been identified as Julian King - the nephew of Jennifer Hudson and son of her sister, Julia, Chicago police officials announced on Monday afternoon.

Access Hollywood's Tony Potts, who is on the scene in Chicago, reported it was Jennifer who identified the boy's body

How horrible to go through this. Who would kill a 7 old year? Some people are just evil.

So sad for such a talented young lady. I hope she has family and friends to help her out in this horrible time of her life!

Such a horrible thing for anyone, much less a young person to go through.

I thought about Patrick Duffy (Dallas) who also lost his parents to murder. I know that he use to help those who had suffered in the same way. I wonder if he will offer his support.

My thoughts and prayers to her, and her sister.

I was in Chicago over the weekend when all this happened. It's safe to say the city is in mourning. The face of evil is all around us. Let us also remember similar tragedies that befall good people (but not famous ones) every day.

Michaela Joy Garecht
Garecht and a friend rode their scooters to the Rainbow Market on Mission Boulevard in Hayward, California on November 19, 1988. The store was two blocks from Garecht's home. Garecht noticed that her friend's scooter had been moved in the parking lot when the girls exited the store; when she went to retrieve it, an unidentified Caucasian male grabbed her and forced her into his vehicle. Garecht's friend went inside the Rainbow Market for assistance, but the abductor was able to escape with Garecht. Neither has been seen again.
