Police hunt suspect after wife and two daughters of BBC commentator killed

Carol Hunt, who was married to racing commentator John Hunt, and two of their daughters Louise and Hannah died at their home in Bushey, Hertfordshire, on Tuesday evening

A manhunt is under way for a triple murder suspect after the wife and two daughters of a Sky and BBC racing commentator were killed in a crossbow attack.

Carol Hunt, who was married to racing commentator John Hunt, and two of their daughters Louise and Hannah died at their home in Bushey, Hertfordshire, on Tuesday evening.

Police have said they were murdered in a “targeted incident” as they urged the suspect, 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, to turn himself in.

“Kyle, if you’re seeing or hearing this, please make contact with the police,” Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson said.

Mr Simpson said the “horrific incident” is believed to have involved a crossbow “but other weapons may also have been used”.

Emergency crews were sent to a property in Ashlyn Close, Bushey, just before 7pm on Tuesday.

They found the three women – aged 25, 28, and 61 – with serious injuries and they died a short time later at the scene.

Mr Hunt works for Sky Sports Racing and BBC 5 Live.

In a statement Sky Sports Racing said: “Everyone at Sky Sports Racing is deeply saddened by the tragic deaths in Hertfordshire and our thoughts are with our colleague John Hunt, his family and friends at this awful time.”

A note sent to BBC 5 Live staff described the news as “utterly devastating”. It read: “Our thoughts are with John and his family at this incredibly difficult time and we will provide him with all the support we can.”

The public has been urged not to approach him and to report any sightings to the police immediately.

It is understood he used to work as a private security guard.
