Now in the second week of the Jennifer Hudson family murder trial, the frantic 911 call made by Hudson’s sister Julia has been released. The call was placed after she discovered her mother’s body on the floor of their house.
According to TMZ, Julia made the gruesome discovery when she came home from work and noticed her mother’s lifeless form. In a panic, Julia saw her mom on the floor and ran outside to call 911, not realizing her brother Jason was also dead inside.
Julia also didn’t immediately realize her 7-year-old son Julian was missing. His body was found days later in a parked SUV.
The 911 tape was introduced as evidence in the trial of William Balfour, 30, who stands accused of the triple murder.
Cook County Judge Charles Burns ordered the release of the 911 recording. He made the ruling before the trial of Balfour moved into the sixth day of prosecution testimony.
Last week, prosecutors played the chilling 911 tape, on which a panicked, sometimes hard-to-understand Julia Hudson is heard speaking with emergency operators.
“Somebody killed my mother. Please help me,” jurors heard her say on the recording played in court. “My momma. My momma.”
If convicted he faces life in prison.
