Chicago police have confirmed that the body of a young boy found Monday morning in an SUV is Julian King, the nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.
In a press conference Monday afternoon, police said they had established the child's identity, but did not yet have a cause of death.
Investigators in Chicago had issued an Amber Alert for seven-year-old Julian King and were looking for a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban. On Monday, authorities removed a white SUV from a west Chicago neighbourhood in which the body was found.
At a brief news conference late Monday morning, police confirmed that the vehicle was indeed the subject of the Amber Alert.
