How does this happen? They walked out the door and all were shot with arrows? Someone broke in their house and shot them with arrows?

“Horrific” describes the coverage currently broadcast here in London. Shrill, concerned voices saying the same things over and over and over again.

I get this kind of violence is rare and significant here in the UK, but how many times do people need to be told “do not approach the suspect with a crossbow”?!?

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

DailyMail making sure to get the price of their house in there.

R5 I think they do it to take the piss now considering even their own readers repeatedly criticise them for doing it.

by Anonymousreply 7July 10, 2024 5:24 PM

He has three daughters, so one is still alive. Small consolation, I know.

by Anonymousreply 8July 10, 2024 5:24 PM

An ex of one of the women?

You mean a whiny, entitled loser who is too weak to deal with rejection or real life.

Police searching for Kyle Clifford following the triple killing in Bushey say they have located a man in Enfield in north London. 18:25

I Iike the way that town/village isn’t perfectly manicured. In the US the lawns and shrubbery would be perfectly mowed and pruned within an inch of their lives. I like the natural, slightly raggedy look. Better for pollinators and for homeowners

R12 Presumably he tried to kill himself and failed at that.

Roll on the inevitable whole life order.

by Anonymousreply 14July 10, 2024 5:33 PM

Big pussy boy tried to off himself, of course. Too weak to take the consequences of his actions. Typical of murdering trash.

I've always been creeped out by crossbows, this story is like a nightmare.

What's a racing commentator?

by Anonymousreply 17July 10, 2024 5:36 PM

Someone who provides commentary on horse racing.

by Anonymousreply 18July 10, 2024 5:39 PM

Lowest rate of gun deaths in Europe. But determined psychos will find a way.

R17 He commentates on horse racing for the BBC.

I feel so bad for him. How does anyone get over their wife and two of their daughters being murdered in cold blood?

by Anonymousreply 20July 10, 2024 5:41 PM

You just know it'll come out that he was stalking / otherwise harassing his ex.

by Anonymousreply 21July 10, 2024 5:42 PM

Thanks, R20.

What a terrible nightmare. I'm glad they caught the suspect.

The same applies here in Canada r19. [sigh]

Omg. They have video of him leaving the house with a crossbow. Yikes.

He’s from a murderous family

Looks like R9 was correct:

"Clifford is believed to be an ex-boyfriend of Mr Hunt's daughter, Louise. Clifford, who has worked as a private security guard, spent several years as a soldier in the 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards"

by Anonymousreply 28July 11, 2024 5:23 AM

R14 and what would you prefer to a whole life order, a 10 year sentence and released after 5 years?

by Anonymousreply 29July 11, 2024 6:35 AM

This is like the end of We Need to Talk About Kevin.

R30 I was thinking that too. Very sadistic.

R29 I wasn't suggesting that it was an unsuitable punishment, just that it's (rightly) inevitable. Someone who murders three people doesn't deserve to be released.

by Anonymousreply 33July 11, 2024 8:19 AM

A little lacking in the niceties there to call him a killer before he's even charged, Daily Mail.

by Anonymousreply 34July 11, 2024 8:21 AM

Those daughters do not look like their parents.

It appears that the Clifford family has anger issues.

by Anonymousreply 43July 11, 2024 9:31 PM

Ironic that his name was Hunter and he was killed with a crossbow.

Thats like if Sean Penn is killed by a pencil.
