Murder weapon confirmed by Chicago police

Police have confirmed through forensic testing that the gun they recovered Wednesday in North Lawndale is the weapon used to kill members of actress and singer Jennifer Hudson's family, a law enforcement source said today.

The .45-caliber Sig-Sauer semiautomatic pistol was recovered in the bushes of a vacant lot a block away from the 1300 block of South Kolin Avenue where the suburban was found Monday morning. Police immediately had suspected the gun was a match because the unfired bullets in the gun matched the make and model of shell casings found at the murder scene, sources said.

The investigation continues as police try to tie their evidence to a suspect. Julia Hudson's estranged husband, William Balfour, remains in custody after being questioned in the case, but he has not been charged in the murders.
