Three Women Killed in Hertfordshire ‘Targeted Incident’; Suspect Urged to Surrender

Three women in Hertfordshire have been killed in what authorities are calling a “targeted incident” involving a crossbow and possibly other weapons. The police are urgently searching for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, wanted in connection with the murders.

Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson has made a public appeal for Clifford to surrender, urging him to contact the police if he is watching or listening to the news.

Emergency responders were dispatched to a residence on Ashlyn Close in Bushey just before 7 pm on Tuesday. Upon arrival, they discovered three women with severe injuries, who died shortly after at the scene. The victims, believed to be related, are identified as Carol Hunt, the wife of BBC racing commentator John Hunt, and two of their daughters, aged 25 and 28. The eldest victim was 61 years old.

Hertfordshire Police have launched a murder investigation and are actively seeking Clifford, who is originally from Enfield, north London. The public is advised not to approach him and to immediately report any sightings to the authorities. Clifford is reported to have previously worked as a private security guard.

Armed officers descended on an address in Rendlesham Road, Enfield, on Wednesday morning, with neighbors observing a significant police presence and helicopters overhead. One neighbor noted the intense activity but did not recognize the suspect.

Detective Superintendent Rob Hall acknowledged the difficulty of the situation for the victims’ family and requested privacy for them as they process the tragedy. Hall also reiterated the seriousness of the incident and the ongoing efforts to locate Clifford, urging anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to contact the police without delay.

A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance Service confirmed that a hazardous area response team and air ambulance crews were dispatched to the scene. Despite their best efforts, all three women were pronounced dead on site.

Neighbors described the chaotic scene as armed police locked down the area. One woman recounted hearing screams before the police arrived, transforming the usually quiet neighborhood into a hub of activity. Another resident, Riaz, expressed shock over the incident, calling it tragic and unimaginable for the family involved. Another neighbor described the victims as a friendly family, often seen greeting passersby.

Local officials and residents have expressed their condolences and called for anyone with information to support the police investigation. Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has been kept informed of the situation, emphasizing the shocking nature of the incident and urging public cooperation with the police. Local councillors also expressed their shock and sadness, extending their condolences to the victims’ families and urging community members to come forward with any relevant information.
