[UPDATED: Oct. 30, 2008, 12:13 am]

According to CBS2 Chicago, a handgun has been found in a vacant lot near where the body of Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found in a white SUV:

Sources say police arrived at the scene at about 1 p.m. Wednesday after getting a tip that the white SUV was seen driving through the vacant lot over the weekend, and someone saw a gun being thrown from the vehicle.

"When I heard it on the news, I said Kolin -- that's where I saw the truck come and park," said Lawndale resident Amanda Archie.

CBS 2's Vince Gerasole reports that Amanda Archie is one of several Lawndale neighbors who report seeing the SUV drive through the neighborhood throughout the weekend.

"I was sitting right there on the corner, they turned and went toward Roosevelt road and when I looked in my mirror a few minutes later, the truck was coming back," Archie said.

"We was just scared at first cause the first time it drove past, it stopped and looked at us, then went back around the second or third time," said Lawndale resident Destiny Jones.

Area residents told CBS 2's Dorothy Tucker that they saw the SUV in the area three or four days ago, but did not connect it to the case. They also said they saw two men inside the SUV. (Source)

  • kitty4shigady

  • Candi Apple

    I heard they were still slinging drugs from the home even though william was kicked out of the house.

    Well I am glad they are getting closer modern Tech. I tell you. Escaping the law is extremely hard now...

    Jennifer Keep ya head up and watch out for Punk too...

  • kitty4shigady

    I agree Candi Cause that punk thing seems so random I mean I know they could not have been dating that long cause she had that other guy who she had been dating for all that time.

    if this turns out to be true....and this cat did this...tortured that baby...then ditched the weapon in the SAME field close to where he left the truck parked with the body....

    i swear i want to see him on the next episode of world's dumbest criminals.

    i hate william balfour right now. so very much. what a waste of human life and god's time he is. and hate is a strong word. but he was so senseless. again, IF he did this...i'm trying to keep an open mind.

    @Kitty.. Yeah Jen went and got all Hollywood. Punk knew the right things to say at the right time. However Punk was not the first person she cheated on her ex with since winning the oscar. Punk is just a smart dude who resembles Jonathan plummer and we know how that story ended. Punk is in it for the money.

    Jen thinks she has all the answers.. I am glad that now she has some good advisors who are actually extremely intelligent.

  • editorialgirl

    Good. I hope they solve the case soon. Obviously, not a trained killer because they threw the gun in the bushes. Like I said, no such thing as a perfect murder.

    Death penalty!

  • coaretained

    say word? Oh sweet Jesus I hope them bullets in that baby match the gun and the damn gun still has fingerprints and hot sauce on it! Avenge these people PUHLEASE!

    The only people that can escape the law anymore ARE THE LAW MAKERS! Talk about a dumb nigga - DID HE HONESTLY THINK HE WOULD NOT GET CAUGHT?

  • KaraZ

    Personally I'm tired of seeing his ugly mug and those silly beads every time I log onto this website.

  • Lemondrop

    Man, the death penalty is too easy for him.

    I want torture.

    They ought to put his behind in a casket ALIVE.

    Put him down under a day for each death.

    On the third day call it a wrap, and put the headstone up.

  • IamdaQueen

    Why would these women give their real names if they said the killers stopped the SUV and looked at them? Now they are all up in the media telling everything. I'm all for telling what you saw but please people, do it anonymously. Keep yourselves safe. We don't need anymore families suffering like the Hudson's are.

  • prynsexxx

    There goes the saying:

    Blk folks can't do wrong right.

    LOL @15

    Not fingerprints and hotsauce! LOL

    I hope they had this information before and just didn't release it because if people are just now speaking up...that's cause for concern!
