Manhunt Underway: Man Allegedly Uses Crossbow to Kill Wife and Daughters of Sports Commentator

A manhunt was underway in England after a horrific scene unfolded Tuesday evening.

The wife and two daughters of BBC horse racing commentator John Hunt died in their Hertfordshire home after a galling attack that involved a crossbow, the BBC reported Wednesday.

Police identified 26-year-old Kyle Clifford as the primary suspect and were searching for him.

“Detectives investigating a triple murder which occurred in #Bushey yesterday evening (Tuesday 9 July) are actively seeking a man who is wanted in connection with the incident,” North Hertfordshire police said in a Facebook post.

“Police were called to a property in Ashlyn Close just before 7pm. Officers attended alongside colleagues from the East of England Ambulance Service and on arrival, found three women with serious injuries,” the post said. “Sadly, despite their best efforts, the women, who are believed to be related, died a short time later at the scene.

“Police have since been searching throughout the night for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford from the Enfield area who is wanted in connection with the incident.”

In a statement included in the post, Rob Hall, detective superintendent of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said, “This is an incredibly difficult incident for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.
