Manhunt Intensifies for Suspect Kyle Clifford After Shocking Crossbow Triple Homicide in Bushey

Bushey, England — A nationwide manhunt is underway for Kyle Clifford, 26, a murder suspect implicated in the deaths of three women following a horrifying crossbow attack in Hertfordshire. The victims, identified as Carol Hunt, 61, and her daughters, Hannah, 28, and Louise, 25, were found seriously injured at a residential property in Ashlyn Close, Bushey, and succumbed to their injuries shortly after.

Authorities have released CCTV footage showing a person, believed to be Clifford, clad entirely in black and concealing an object under a sheet that is suspected to be a large crossbow. The footage captured the suspect exiting an alleyway leading to the crime scene before driving away in a nearby car.

Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson described the tragic event as a “targeted incident” and emphasized the urgency of Clifford’s capture to ensure public safety. Extensive police resources, including armed units and specialist teams, have been deployed across North London and Bushey areas in response.

The relationship of the suspect to the deceased remains unclear, but the urgency of the manhunt reflects the gravity of the threat he is perceived to pose. Clifford, originally from the Enfield area, was last seen fleeing the scene, and authorities believe he may be hiding anywhere within Hertfordshire or North London.

The impact of the incident has extended to public figures, touching the family of BBC Five Live racing commentator John Hunt, who has been confirmed as the husband and father of the victims. This personal connection to a public persona has heightened the profile of the case and increased the pressure on law enforcement to swiftly resolve the manhunt.

Residents of the usually quiet Bushey community have expressed shock and fear over the violent events that have unfolded. Local community leaders have urged the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity, emphasizing that the suspect may still be armed and is considered extremely dangerous.

Police have reached out directly to Clifford through public appeals, urging him to surrender himself to the authorities to facilitate a peaceful resolution to the situation. The police’s plea underscores the desperate situation and their commitment to resolving it without further harm.

As the community reels from this violent incident, tributes have begun to pour in for the victims, remembered as beloved members of the Bushey community. The local authorities have also set up support systems for residents traumatized by the event, reinforcing the fabric of the community in the wake of the tragedy.

The investigation continues as every lead is being followed up to track down Clifford, with law enforcement keen on a swift capture to prevent any further violence and to bring justice for the tragic loss of the Hunt family members.
