Neil Entwistle has been arrested in England according to reports. Entwistle has been considered a “person of interest” in the murder of his wife Rachel Entwistle, 27, and 9-month-old Lillian.
British authorities arrested a man Thursday in the shooting deaths of his wife and infant daughter, whose bodies were found in their Massachusetts home last month, officials said.
London’s Metropolitan Police said Entwistle was arrested at a subway station on a provisional extradition warrant issued Wednesday evening. His first court appearance is to be Friday at Bow Street Magistrates Court, the customary venue for extradition cases.
Neil Entwistle had purchased a one way ticket to London and left on the morning of Saturday, January 21 from Boston’s Logan Airport where his vehicle was found. Interestingly enough the Entwistle’s only owned one vehicle and that would have meant that Neil would have left to London with a one way ticket and stranded with wife an 9 month old baby at home without transportation. Also, Entwistle did not return for his wife and daughter’s funeral on February 1. The true sign of a caring father distraught by the loss of his wife and child. Investigators now believe that Neil Entwistle borrowed a gun from his father in law to commit the crime.
