The nightmare just keeps getting worse for beloved Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson: Her 7-year-old nephew was found dead in an SUV parked on the west side of Chicago, just days after the singer's mother and brother were found murdered in their Chicago-area home.

The body of Julian King -- the son of Hudson's older sister, Julia -- was found in a white Chevrolet Suburban after a local man reported a suspicious vehicle parked outside his home, reports the Chicago Tribune. Law enforcement officials said King was shot several times in the back of the van.

King was reported missing after Darnell Donerson and Jason Hudson -- Hudson's mother and brother, respectively -- were found shot to death on Friday after a family member visited their home. The Dreamgirls star offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who could help locate King.

Twenty-seven-year-old William Balfour, the estranged husband of Julia Hudson, was brought in for questioning on Friday night. According to law enforcement sources, Balfour's girlfriend contradicted his alibi. Balfour and Julia Hudson had been separated for some time, according to reports, and a family friend told the Tribune that Balfour recently had threatened to take Julian away.

Jennifer Hudson is reportedly in Chicago now and just hours ago was said to be en route to the medical examiner's office to identify the body. (Neal Broverman, The Advocate)
