Chicago police say they've confirmed that a gun they recovered on Wednesday is the weapon that was used in the killings of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and young nephew.The gun was recovered in the bushes of a vacant lot, a block away from where the nephew's body was found Monday morning.

Detectives are trying to tie the evidence to William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson's sister. He remains in custody but hasn't been charged with the murders.

Meanwhile Hudson's family will hold a public memorial service on Sunday for the victims, but neither the actress nor her sister will attend.
