Neighbor Hears Screams Before Chaos In Ashlyn Close

A person who lives on Ashlyn Close in Bushey, where the police are looking into the killings of three women, said they heard loud cries on Tuesday night during the "extremely distressing" event.

A 46-year-old person, who prefers to remain anonymous but is employed in the media industry, stated: "Around 6.30pm to 7pm last night, I heard what seemed like children or someone screaming. It soon became clear that it was a woman screaming, and within 15 minutes, things became chaotic."

Armed police officers were running around, shouting for people to stay inside their homes. They blocked our area and essentially put us on lockdown.

The person living in the area noted that many ambulances, helicopters, and a large number of police cars arrived swiftly. The armed officers went from one house to another, speaking with residents, asking for any doorbell camera recordings, and advising them to remain inside.

The woman expressed her distress and anxiety upon learning that a man wanted in connection with a triple murder is still on the loose. She mentioned how unsettling it is to realize that such a tragic event occurred nearby without anyone being aware or able to intervene.

"It's truly devastating, I believe, for the family and for everyone else affected."

I believe the most difficult part is that the incident occurred during the busiest time for families, between 6pm and 7pm. This is when most people are preparing dinner for their children and getting them ready for bed. We were all gathered in our close-knit community, unaware of the difficult situations that others were facing at that exact moment.

Councillor Denounces Illegal Flytipping Practice

Lawrence Brass, a nearby resident of Bushey, mentioned that he was canvassing for the general election a few days ago and stopped by the home of the people involved in the incident. Although he didn't know them personally, he expressed his sympathy for the situation.

I am confident that their friends will be supporting the surviving family members. These are all my associates, I am familiar with each one of them.

Yesterday night at 7pm, a helicopter landed on the grassy area near my home in the neighborhood. I heard it was an air ambulance, but soon there were talks about a possible crossbow incident.

The most terrible event that has occurred in this area of Bushey was some illegal dumping, and then out of nowhere we have three murders and we are all feeling very shocked and unsettled.

"We live in a peaceful, old-fashioned suburb with lots of greenery. Events like this don't usually happen here, so I want the residents to know that the council will be sending a team to help and reassure them. We will do our best to comfort them and make sure everything is being taken care of."

"We are concerned that this individual may still be out there somewhere."
