The Hudson murderer’s gun has been linked! The found gun has just been confirmed LINKED to the Hudson murders by police testing. The gun used to kill Hudson Donerson, Jason Hudson, and Julian King has been confirmed as the gun found near the parked SUV where Julian King’s body was found, reports Chicago Sun Times.
On Thursday, AP reported that that a gun was found in a vacant lot around the corner from the SUV’s parked location. The report said the gun was sent to Illinois State Police for testing and could take time. Now today Chicago Sun Times says its confirmed linked to the crimes but that Illinois State Police are trying to confirm if the weapon was fired by William Balfour.
“Police are still investigating whether the gun was linked to William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia Hudson, sources said. The gun had been sent to the Illinois State Police lab for testing.”
Yesterday, AP said police are comparing the gun with the shells recovered in the Hudson home, with no confirmation of any shell recovery from inside or near the SUV. Yet today the Chicago Sun Times says the weapon has been linked also to Julian King’s shooting without any mention of shell recoveries.
As reported yesterday from AP, police believe Julian King was alive at the house after the killing of Darnell and Jason. A taking of Julian from the home to the SUV, coupled with murder, could place a defendant with charges of premeditation for King’s death.
