Suspect Who Murdered BBC Journalist’s Wife And Two Daughters Arrested

A man wanted in connection with the brutal murder of a BBC journalist’s wife and two daughters has been found in north London following a massive manhunt.

Kyle Clifford, 26, was discovered in the Enfield area on Wednesday afternoon after police launched an extensive search operation. He is currently receiving treatment for injuries sustained during the search.

Clifford, who was known to the victims, is believed to have used a crossbow in the attack, although police suspect other weapons may have also been involved.

The bodies of the three women – the wife and two daughters of BBC racing commentator John Hunt – were found at a house in Bushey, Hertfordshire, on Tuesday evening. The victims, aged 25, 28, and 61, were all pronounced dead at the scene.

The BBC has described the incident as “utterly devastating” and has pledged to support Hunt and his family during this difficult time.

“John’s family is utterly devastated by this tragedy,” said a statement from the BBC. “Our thoughts are with John and his family at this incredibly difficult time and we will provide him with all the support we can.”

Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has also expressed her condolences and has urged anyone with information about the case to come forward.

“This is truly shocking news. My thoughts are with the family and friends of those who have been killed and with the community,” she wrote on Twitter.

A neighbor of the victims described them as friendly and kind, saying she would often see them passing by and they would exchange good mornings.

“It’s really sad what’s happened, very shocking,” she added.

Clifford left the British army in 2022 after a short period of service. He is currently being treated for his injuries and will be questioned by police once he is well enough.
