from a neighbor about a suspicious vehicle. The man noticed the vehicle while walking his dog. According to the Chicago Tribune, the boy had been shot multiple times in the back seat of the vehicle. The SUV, registered to Hudson’s murdered brother, was towed with the boy’s body inside and is being processed by evidence technicians and workers. The body was later removed and taken to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. Hudson and other family members arrived at the Medical Examiner’s office mid-afternoon to identify the body. Given the choice between looking directly at the body or viewing it on a wall-mounted
video screen, the family chose the latter. According to the Tribune, Hudson said, “Yes, that’s him.”

posted fliers bearing his photograph around the city. On Sunday, Jennifer Hudson asked for the public’s help in finding her nephew. In her MySpace blog, she thanked fans and supporters for their prayers and offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who returned the boy alive. Since the investigation, Hudson – who gained stardom after appearing on “American Idol,” and then won an Academy Award for her role in the movie Dreamgirls – has stayed out of the public eye. The Chicago Tribune reported that a parade of cars moved slowly past her family’s home Monday morning, past the news vans, reporters and curious onlookers. Neighbors stood quietly and reflected on the violence. In front of the Hudson’s home, men in heavy jackets and hooded sweatshirts came to kiss the twin white crosses baring the names of Donerson and Jason. “Everybody is sick of going through stuff like this,” Artisha West, a former resident of the area told the Tribune. “We all have to stick together. All these young children are dying, and for what?”
“remained strong for her family” and was clearly its leader. “She held hands with her family,” the spokesman said. “It was obviously a very emotional moment.” The boy – the son of Julia Hudson, Jennifer’s sister – had been missing since Friday, when a relative found Julian’s grandmother, Darnell Donerson, 57, and his uncle, Jason Hudson, 29, shot to death in his grandmother’s home in the 7000 block of South Yale Avenue. An Amber Alert – a designation for high-risk missing children – was issued Friday after Julian was discovered missing after the murders. Police arrested William Balfour, the missing boy’s stepfather and estranged husband of Julia, at his girlfriend’s Southside apartment several hours after the murders. Balfour’s mother, Michele, has told reporters that her son had nothing to do with the slayings. Balfour remains a suspect in
being convicted of attempted murder and vehicular hijacking. Cook County records show that he pleaded guilty to both charges in 1999. He was also convicted in 1998 for possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He was released from prison in 2006 after serving seven years for the attempted murder and car hijacking charges. The boy remained missing through a long weekend in which police and volunteers

On May 12, over 1,500 Baltimore area Boy Scouts attended the Orioles game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles honored the top sellers in the Boy Scoutâ€™s popcorn selling fundraiser from last summer with several incentives, including a personal tour of the ballpark, a chance to be on the field to watch batting practice, a presentation of the lineup card, an Orioles Heavy Hitter award, and the ceremonial first pitch. All participants received a special Oriole Park at Camden Yards Scout badge. The Baltimore Orioles provided each participating Scout who achieves 30 popcorn sales with a ticket to the game and other top seller on-field recognition opportunities. Michael Tritsch, a 13-yearold Boy Scout from Troop 944 in Ellicott City, Howard County, was the Central Maryland top fundraising Scout with $10,300 in sales. Tritsch threw the first pitch. The Baltimore Orioles and the BAC, BSA have a unique partnership to promote the Orioles and Scouting in Central Maryland on behalf of boys, young adults and their families. Scouts who sell popcorn, the official product sale fundraiser of the BSA, are offered incentives for a Baltimore Orioles game. In addition, a portion of each ticket to the game sold by BAC, BSA will be returned to Scouting as a donation.

Itâ€™s year two of what was the biggest free agency coup in Star Dwyane Wade isnâ€™t playing up to par, and LeBron James is struggling to both piece the team together and put them on his back. Should the Heat and their Big Three falter again in their second trip together to the postseason, heads may roll in South Beach. But considering Bosh is injured, should the Heat be dismantled if they fail to secure a championship again this season? AFRO sports writers Riley: The Heat made it to the Finals last year before bowing out and will probably falter early this year with Bosh sidelined, but the team needs to stick together. Their inaugural campaign in my opinion was a success as they fell only two games shy of the 2011 trophy, and this year itâ€™s hard to blast them with Bosh injured. The Big
