Veteran suspected of killing BBC star’s wife, 2 daughters with crossbow caught in cemetery after extensive manhunt

A UK man suspected of murdering his ex-girlfriend and two members of her family with a crossbow has been caught following an extensive manhunt, according to reports.

Kyle Clifford, 26, was arrested at a cemetery in north London Wednesday where heavily armed police found him injured and transported him to a local hospital, according to the Daily Mail.

Clifford, a military veteran, is suspected of murdering his 25-year-old ex-girlfriend Louise Hunt, along with her sister Hannah, 28, and her 61-year-old mother Carol.

The women — who are the wife and daughters of well-known BBC radio host John Hunt — were found dead in their home Tuesday night with crossbow bolts in their chests.

Police suspect they had been tied up for hours before being executed in a “targeted attack.”

One of the victims had managed to send a text to a friend asking them to call cops before the slaying, according to The Guardian.

Their killing sparked a massive manhunt and school lockdowns as officers sought the armed and dangerous suspect, until he was finally located at the cemetery not far from his home.

The extent of Clifford’s injuries or how they came about remains unclear.

Police say he was injured when they found him and that he was captured without shots being fired.

“Following extensive inquiries, the suspect has been located and nobody else is being sought in connection with the investigation at this time,” said Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins.

“This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened,” she added.

“This investigation is moving at pace and formal identification of the victims is yet to take place.”

Hunt has another daughter, Amy, who lives in another part of England.

The BBC sent out a letter to staff describing the incident as “utterly devastating”.
