‘Crossbow murder' suspect receiving medical treatment after being detained by police

‘Crossbow murder' suspect receiving medical treatment after being detained by police

Kyle Clifford is wanted in connection with the killing of three women in Bushey, Hertfordshire

Police have apprehended triple murder suspect Kyle Clifford in North London.

Clifford, who is understood to have left the British Army in 2022 after a brief period of service, was found in the Enfield area this afternoon and has been receiving treatment for injuries. No shots were fired on the scene by police.

Earlier today, authorities could be seen scouring a cemetery in North London for Clifford after three women were allegedly shot dead with a crossbow in Bushey, Hertfordshire.

Clifford, 26, is currently wanted in connection with the killing of Carol Hunt, 61, and her two daughters Hannah, 28, and Louise, 25.

Earlier today, it was reported that armed police officers and ambulance staff had focused their search at a cemetery in the Hilly Fields area of Enfield, North London.

Footage from the location was shared with PA, which appeared to show armed police officers scouring the area today (10 July).

Rae Cresswell, 26, a local resident who filmed it, told the news agency: "I was just in there minding my own business when I saw about 10 officers coming in, it was around 3pm I’d say. I was quite worried because they were armed and there were dogs with them."

They continued: "I asked them if they wanted me to leave but they said it was fine to stay.

"They started checking the area so I left shortly after and came back to see all these vehicles."

Speaking about the update in a statement Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

"This investigation is moving at pace and formal identification of the victims is yet to take place. The premature naming of potential victims has caused great upset to the family when they should’ve been given the space to come to terms with their sudden loss.

"Following extensive inquiries, the suspect has been located and nobody else is being sought in connection with the investigation at this time."

Meanwhile, tributes have been pouring in for BBC racing commentator John Hunt, who is the husband and father of the three victims.

A statement from the British Horseracing Authority chief executive Julie Harrington, read: "The thoughts of everyone at the BHA are with John Hunt, his family and friends at this shocking and tragic time.

"It is impossible to comprehend the horror that has been inflicted upon them by this dreadful event.

"John is a great friend to many in our sport and I am sure that in this time of unimaginable grief for him, the racing family will rally around as we have seen many times before when one of our number is faced with great trauma."
