(Newser) – Jennifer Hudson again found herself tasked with the unthinkable in Chicago's morgue yesterday, looking up at a video screen depicting the body of her 7-year-old nephew Julian King in the next room, the Chicago Tribune reports. "Yes, that's him," the actress said of the missing boy cops found slumped in the backseat of an SUV, with a gunshot to the head. Police are questioning Julian's mother's estranged husband, but he's not been charged.
