Police are investigating a triple murder after finding three women who died of serious injuries.

Herts Police were called to a property in Ashlyn Close just before 7pm yesterday evening (July 9), alongside the East of England Ambulance Service, and found three women with serious injuries on arrival.

The force have confirmed that “despite their best efforts” the women, who are believed to be related, died at the scene.

Officers have since been searching throughout the night for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford from the Enfield area who is wanted in connection with the murders.

Detective Superintendent Rob Hall said: “This is an incredibly difficult incident for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

“Whilst we are still in the early stages of this investigation, we are actively seeking Kyle Clifford who we believe could be in the areas of Hertfordshire or North London.

He added: “Given the serious nature of the incident, I would ask anyone who knows where he is to contact police immediately. If you believe you see him, please do not approach him and dial 999 straight away.

"He may still be in possession of a weapon.

“Our enquires will continue over the coming days to ascertain the full circumstances of what happened but I would also like to take this opportunity appeal to anyone who was in the area around Ashlyn Close from around lunchtime on Tuesday until 7pm, and believes they may have seen anything that could assist the investigation, to contact us.”

Information can be reported online at herts.police.uk/report, or by calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting Op Infauna.

Anonymous information can be shared by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 55 111.

Detective superintendent Hall added: “This incident will of course be of concern to local residents.

"Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be in the area today so please do speak to them if you need to.”
