BBC Star John Hunt’s wife and two children were killed in a tragic triple murder.

Carol Hunt, 61, Hannah Hunt, 28, and Louise Hunt, 25, were all killed inside their home on Tuesday.

The suspect currently on the run is Louise Hunt’s ex-boyfriend.

According to reports, Carol, Hannah, and Louise were tied up by Kyle Clifford and killed with a crossbow.

Clifford is now on the run.

Here’s what The Mirror reported:

Broadcaster John Hunt harrowingly lost his wife and two daughters in a tragic triple killing at their home – and their suspected murderer is still on the run.

The three fatally injured women in Hertfordshire have today been identified as Carol Hunt, 61, Hannah Hunt, 28, and Louise Hunt, 25 – the partner and two children of the BBC sports commentator. Mr Hunt, 58, is said to have been working for the BBC at Lingfield Park race course on Tuesday when he returned home around 7pm to discover the three of them seriously injured.

Emergency services, including two air ambulances, were sent to the property, and despite their best efforts to save the women, they all died at the scene. The mother and daughters were “targeted” and attacked with a crossbow and other weapons in Ashlyn Close, Bushey, Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson of Hertfordshire Police has said.

Police are looking for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, from Enfield, north London, in connection with the deaths, and have warned he is believed to be armed. It is believed that victim Louise was his ex-girlfriend. Directly appealing to the main suspect, Chief Sup Simpson said: “Kyle if you are seeing or hearing this please make contact.” Investigators believe he could also be in Hertfordshire or around his home in north London.

A heartbreaking tribute to Louise on social media reads, according to MyLondon: “No words can describe the loss I feel after today’s horrific news. You were so loved and Scooby adored you…you built up an amazing business and were always so kind and gentle. May you RIP with your sister and mum xxx.”

The youngest of the sisters, Louise, reportedly launched a dog grooming service during Covid lockdown named Groom and Glow – which was run out of the family home – while her sister Hannah owned a beauty business called Hannah Grace Aesthetics. One comment on Louise’s business Instagram account was written by her supportive sister Hannah, who said: “The best dog groomer ever.”

Per The Daily Mail:

BBC Five Live racing commentator John Hunt’s wife and two daughters have been revealed as the victims of a deadly crossbow attack at their home.

Mother Carol, 61, and daughters Louise, 25, and Hannah, 28, were found fatally injured at their £800,000 detached home in Bushey, Hertfordshire, last night.

Police sources said the three women were tied up before being shot in a ‘targeted attack’ that may have also included ‘other weapons’.

A huge manhunt is underway to find suspect Kyle Clifford, 26, who is the ex-boyfriend of John’s daughter Louise.

Helicopters were seen circling the Hilly Fields area of Enfield, north London, on Wednesday afternoon before police raided an empty property in the area.

They then turned their sights on a nearby primary school which has gone into lockdown after locating the suspect’s car.
