Suspect in murder of BBC commentator’s family located in London

British police said Wednesday (10) they had located a man wanted in connection with the murder of the wife and two daughters of John Hunt, a BBC horse racing commentator.

Officers found the three victims, aged 25, 28 and 61, with serious injuries at a house in Bushey, a leafy town in eastern England, on Tuesday night (9). They died at the scene a short time later.

The BBC reported that the women were Carol Hunt, John Hunt’s wife, and the couple’s two daughters.

A large operation involving armed officers was carried out in search of suspect Kyle Clifford, with officers warning the public not to approach the 26-year-old.

“After extensive investigation, the suspect has been located and no one else is being sought at this time,” said Detective Justine Jenkins of the local Major Crimes Unit.

Police said Clifford was located in north London and was receiving medical treatment after being found injured. The statement added that no shots were fired by police.

The victims have not yet been formally identified, but police believe Clifford was known to all three women.

Earlier on Wednesday (10), Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson called the case “horrific”, telling reporters that they believe a crossbow and possibly other weapons were used.

Hunt’s friends and colleagues expressed shock at the news.

ITV horse racing commentator Matt Chapman posted on X: “Impossible to comprehend the pain. Just know we are all here for you John. We love you mate – racing loves you.”
