Los Angeles, Oct 27 (DPA) The body of a boy believed to be the missing nephew of singer and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson was discovered Monday three days after Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death in their Chicago home.The boy had not been seen since the discovery of Darnell Hudson Donerson, 57, and Jason Hudson, 29, by a family member Friday.
The body was found in the rear seat of white sports utility vehicle registered to Hudson’s deceased brother Jason, Chicago police said.
