A week since the tragic loss of her family, Jennifer Hudson has created the Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims which will aim to benefit relatives of murder victims.According to People, the Hudson family will go forward with the project to help provide assistance to people with the most vital needs in addition to emotional guidance.

“The specific purpose of the Foundation is to care for the needs of families who have lost relatives to a violent crime,” she wrote in a statement. “This encompasses their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter as well as grief counseling.”

Based out of New York, the foundation will pay tribute to the memory of Hudson’s slain mother, Darnell Donerson, brother Jason Hudson and seven year-old nephew Julian King.

Announced earlier this week following a prayer gathering on Wednesday night (October 29) in Chicago, Reverend Jesse Jackson expressed the impact last week’s murders have had on the Hudsons.

“[They] are overwhelmed by the suddenness and the unexpectedness of it all,” he told People. “This family knows triumph and they also know tragedy.”

More disturbing news follows the Hudsons, however, as police officials are claiming her nephew was most likely shot in the SUV he was discovered earlier this week.

According to the Associated Press, Chicago authorities predict King was alive upon leaving the family’s home where both Hudson’s mother and brother were shot and killed.

As previously reported by SOHH, the singer’s brother-in-law and main suspect in the murders, William Balfour, has informed police he is not willing to submit to a lie-detector test.

Chicago police has since also discovered a gun on Wednesday near the area that King was found.

Balfour is currently being held under police surveillance after violating his parole in a separate case. He has not been charged in the Hudson family murders.
