Amber Alert GPS 2G lets parents track their kids

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: GPS, Misc. Tech,

Amber Alert GPS 2GFor those parents that are nervous about their kids, and really want to know where their children are, then they should probably purchase the Amber Alert 2G device.  It works as a GPS beacon, which allows not-so tech savvy parents text to find out the exact location of their kid.  True, I’m not certain whether a longitude and latitude will help, but the “Breadcrumbing” feature allows them to track their steps like Billy from the Family Circus.  The Amber Alert costs about $379.99, with monthly plans being $9.99 and $59.99.

Body of Jennifer Hudson’s Nephew Found

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Music,

Julian KingUPDATE: The FBI has since confirmed that the deceased boy found inside the car was Julian King.

The sad discovery of a young boy’s body may have put an end to an Illinois-area Amber Alert.

Earlier this morning, the Chicago Police Department were asked to check on a possible suspicious car. The white Chevy Surburban, which was parked on the city’s west side, matched the description included in Friday’s missing person report. Although a definitive ID has not yet been released, a body found inside is believed to be that of Julian King, Jennifer Hudson’s 7-year-old relative.

Just this past weekend, the Oscar-winner posted a plea on her MySpace page and offered up a $100,000 reward for the safe return of her nephew. Officers began looking for the boy shortly after the bodies of his grandmother and uncle were located late last week. Although he has not yet been charged with any crimes, Julian’s stepfather, William Balfour, has been in police custody since Friday night.

Relatives fearing the worse about King had reportedly scheduled a church vigil for noon today.

Possible Suspect Arrested for Deaths of Jennifer Hudson’s Relatives


A day after ‘s mother and brother were found murdered, a young boy remains missing while a possible suspect sits in custody.

Late Friday night, William Balfour - the singer’s estranged brother-in-law - was located by the Chicago Police Department hours after the bodies of 57-year-old Darnell Donerson (Jennifer’s mother) and 29-year-old Jason Hudson were found. Although no charges have yet been filed, officers identified Balfour as a person of interest in the murders and in the disappearance of Julian King, his 7-year-old stepson.

The crime scene was discovered yesterday afternoon when Jennifer’s sister, Julia Hudson, returned to the house after work. When police arrived to the South Side home, they found a woman with a gunshot wound to her head in the living room and a man with a gunshot wound to his chest in a bedroom. An Amber Alert was issued shortly thereafter for King. Based on earlier reports of gunshots fired, officers believe the incident may have actually occurred around 9:00 in the morning.
