Police in Chicago have found the body of a young boy in the SUV that was the subject of a manhunt for the missing 7-year-old nephew of actress Jennifer Hudson. Police have not yet confirmed that the body is that of the missing boy, Julian King, son of Jennifer’s sister, Julia Hudson.

Hudson, who had offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the safe return of her nephew, is already dealing with the double homicide of her mother and brother. The suspect in the case, 27-year-old William Balfour, is on parole and spent almost seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle.
