BBC Journalist’s Family Tragedy: Police Call Crossbow Murder a “Targeted” Attack – E! Online

More details are emerging about the tragic murder of John Hunt’s family.

Kyle Clifford, 26—who is suspected of murdering the BBC reporter’s wife Carol Hunt, 61, and daughters Hannah, 28, and Louise, 25, with a crossbow on July 9—is believed to have been connected to the family.

Hertfordshire Constabulary Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson, during a July 10 press conference, noted maintaining public safety was a primary concern as was locating Kyle, who he said “is wanted in connection with murder of the three women, in what we believe is a targeted incident.”

During the same conference, Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit noted police “believe the suspect was known to the victims.”

Following the press conference on July 10, Kyle was detained by British police near Enfield—located less than an hour’s drive from Bushey, where the murders were carried out—following a manhunt, Sky News reported.

Aerial footage showed the police carrying Kyle on a stretcher in a cemetery, and the Hertfordshire Constabulary said in a statement, “He is receiving medical treatment having been found with injuries. No shots were fired by police.”
