(Newser) – The body of a boy found in an SUV today is that of Julian King, police tell the Chicago Tribune. Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew was shot multiple times, probably inside the vehicle, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Police are still holding King's stepfather, William Balfour, who is considered the prime suspect in the killing. He has already lied once under questioning, and his girlfriend has contradicted his alibi.
