Crossbow Attack: Man Wanted in Connection with Triple Killing Found by British Police

Bushey, Hertfordshire – British police have successfully located a man sought in connection with a tragic crossbow attack that claimed the lives of three women in a home located in Bushey, Hertfordshire, just northwest of London. Kyle Clifford, age 26, was discovered by police in the Enfield area of north London and has since been receiving medical treatment for injuries sustained.

Authorities had identified Clifford as a suspect in the triple murder the night before. Police were called to the scene on Tuesday evening and found the women critically injured, with all three tragically passing away at the scene. The victims were named as Carol Hunt, age 61, Hannah Hunt, age 28, and Louise Hunt, age 25, the wife and daughters of John Hunt, a BBC 5 Live radio station horse racing commentator.

Details emerged that the suspect was acquainted with the victims, according to a statement released by Hertfordshire police. The tragic incident has sparked conversation regarding crossbow laws in the UK, with Home Secretary Yvette Cooper considering stricter regulations in light of recent events.

The previous government had explored the possibility of tightening laws surrounding crossbows after a failed assassination attempt by Jaswant Singh Chail on Queen Elizabeth II in 2021. Currently, there are no registration requirements for crossbows in Britain, although it is illegal for individuals under 18 to possess one.

In response, the Conservative government’s Home Office initiated a review earlier this year to potentially implement a licensing system and more stringent restrictions on crossbow sales and purchases. Despite the completion of the review in April, action was delayed due to the recent elections.

In the wake of the tragic event, condolences have poured in from John Hunt’s colleagues in the sports journalism and racing communities. Various individuals have taken to social media to express their support for the Hunt family during this difficult time. The heartbreaking incident has highlighted the need for further examination of existing crossbow laws in the UK to prevent such senseless tragedies in the future.
