26-year-old kills three women with crossbow, flees: English police launch manhunt

On Tuesday, July 9, 2024, a man is suspected of killing three women in Bushey, England. The country’s police have begun a real manhunt.

They fear a very dangerous fugitive. According to the BBCa 26-year-old man is actively wanted in England. He is alleged to have killed three women aged between 25, 28 and 61 years old.

“Targeted attack”

According to the prosecutor who spoke at noon, it would be a “targeted attack”. The man, Kyle Clifford, allegedly killed his victims with a crossbow.. “Significant police resources” have been deployed in north London and the Bushey area. The fugitive may still be carrying a weapon.

The prosecutor addressed the fugitive directly: “Kyle, if you see or hear this, please contact the police.” He asks the public not to approach him and to simply signal his presence.

The three victims were injured last night in the same house. Authorities said they were “linked”without specifying to what extent. They died shortly after the attack, on the spot.

Neighbors testify

“Armed police came running, shouting ‘stay home’… they cut us off from the world and practically locked us in”says a neighbor. “It sounded like children screaming, someone screaming, and then it got louder and I thought, ‘That’s definitely a woman screaming!’ And within 15 minutes it was absolute chaos.”explains another. The Interior Ministry has been informed.
