Breaking from Chicago: Jennifer Hudson's relative believed slain

A relative of Oscar-winning actress/singer Jennifer Hudson is believed to be one of two people found slain in a Chicago home, according to a report on the breaking news blog for the Chicago Tribune. An update, courtesy of MTV.com, reports that Hudson's mother and brother were both killed

The Tribune reports that the home is owned by Darnell Donerson, who is Hudson's mother. According to the story from Jeremy Gorner and James Janega:

One of the victims was a woman in her 50s who was shot in the head and the other was a 29-year-old man who was shot in the chest, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The Chicago Tribune is continually updating its blog, and Pop & Hiss recommends clicking the above link for the latest information.

Hudson is said to have grown up in the Chicago home. The Tribune quotes Chicago Police spokeswoman Monique Bond, who said at least one victim is "believed to be" a relative of Jennifer Hudson.

The shooting was believed to be related to a domestic disturbance, Bond told the Tribune, stressing that this was preliminary information.

Please know that everyone prayers are with you and your entire family. Only God knows why these things will happen. your not by yourself jenny. Like My Mom used to say " The Devil is just mad" Remember JOB and his trials and tribulations read what happened to him you will find it interesting.

Prayer - God.. exactly where was God when this was happening - and what about the missing child..

My prayers and thoughts go out to Jennifer Hudson and her entire family during this most difficult time. Know that God only presents us with challenges and circumstances that He knows we can handle and get through. Your contiued belief and trust in Him will get you and your family through this and also strengthen you. We can never question God's will-just know that He is always there for you and continue to prayer each and everyday-not just when you think He can help you. Much love and continue to keep your head up like all of us African American women have learned to do so well.

Sorry for the lost. We as a church will have her in our prayers, I must ask a question, Where is her sister in the midst of this happening?

Jennifer, PLEASE get your remaining family and yourself OUT of drug and invested crime city of Chicago. Move to secured area of Beverly Hills, CA. When was the last time you have heard a movie star or their family being murdered there? Maybe Sharon Tate 40 years ago. Get into secured areas like other movie stars and get protection and privacy NOW! So sorry to read about your family and loss of life of such decent loving people. On the brighter side I think you are great and deserve a lot of credit for receiving an oscar for your first movie made. I don't think anyone has accomplished that feat but you. GOD BLESS you and your family.

God bless you at this devastating time. Trust in God and have faith that he will see you through. I am praying for you and your family. We your fans stand behind you and are supporting you. We love you Jennifer!

My heart goes out to this family, but know that God will put no more on use than we can bare. Trust and believe that God can and will see you all through.
