Amazing Grace: Funeral here in MA today!

As I went outside today to test the field to see if it was too wet from the rain I heard the sound of Amazing Grace carried out over the harbor to my ears. It is a song that always seems to make me cry, especially since it was jsut a month ago that we burried my grandmother. Today was no different.

[Q]PLYMOUTH, Mass. -- Friends and family gathered at a Catholic church in Plymouth to pay their last respects to a young mother and child Wednesday.

NewsCenter 5's Gail Huff reported that Rachel Entwistle, 27, and her 9-month-old daughter, Lillian, were found shot to death in their Hopkinton home on Jan. 22.

A funeral Mass was held at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Plymouth. Police escorted the funeral procession to the church from Shepherd Funeral Home in Kingston.

Mother and baby will be buried together in a single casket in Kingston. Just months ago, Lillian was baptized in the same church.


Rachel's family did not invite her husband Neil Entwistle, 27, to the funeral. He has been at his family's home in Worksop, England since Jan. 21 and did not attend the wake. The calling hours were extended at Kingston's Shepherd Funeral Home because so many people came to pay their respects.

Entwistle is still being called a "person of interest." In order to bring him back to the U.S., authorities would have to seek a warrant for his extradition from Great Britain.

Investigators towed Entwistle's BMW from the Logan International Airport garage so it can be examined at the police department. Several boxes of evidence taken from the Entwistles' rented home have been impounded at Framingham District Court.

Detectives continue to look for the small-caliber handgun used to shoot Rachel and Lillian Entwistle.[/Q]

A very sad story down there. I know the husband isn't "officially" a suspect, but you have to wonder. How could he not attend that funeral if he wasn't involved somehow?

"Rachel's family did not invite her husband Neil Entwistle, 27, to the funeral."

American criminal justice tends to make the surviving spouse the prime suspect, by default. I hope nobody here has a murdered spouse someday, because you'll be the prime suspect if no one else confesses up front.

I don't think he would have shown up even if he was invited, that's just my personal opinion.

Alleged facts -

No signs of forced entry (of course someone could have come to her door and she let them in)

He didn't return home upon hearing of the deaths

Conflicting reports, but some say he refused to speak to MA investigators

He bought one way ticket to England

He allegedly spoke to someone on the phone and said something like "I have no idea how I got to England ( ), is it true Rachel and Lillian are dead?"

He had Ebay scam and other internet porn scams in which he was allegedly (by customers) committing some sort of fraud. Maybe his wife was unaware of all that and she found out, or maybe his world was closing in on him

Bodies covered w/ numerous blankets-logic and experience might say that a non-family member would not do that. An FBI profiler I saw on CNN stated that.

I don't assume he is guilty but things just don't add up, not so far. If he didn't do it himself he could have hired someone to do it.

The fact remains that most murders of wives and babies are at the hands of boyfriends/spouses, so police would certainly be remiss if they didn't check him out. They shouldn't assume it was him-and they are still calling him a person of interest. Unfortunately the bodies went unnoticed by police twice (I think it was twice, not sure about that) on a well being check, and once by family members the same day. So some evidence might be too degraded.

I would assume they are trying to talk to fellow passengers from his flight

Sadly, statistics support the notion that the spouse is a prime suspect. Violence by people we know is far higher that violence by strangers.

True, but in this case (as Mrs. S has outlined), there are just way too many disturbing facts in all of this.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here and say Neil Entwistle may not have come home for his wife and daughter's funerals because he knew the media circus it would create if he did attend.

Honestly, I'm not sure I believe that. But maybe.

There are rumors around this small little town...

that would lead one to believe it is not so obvious...

"As authorities continue to actively investigate the deaths of Rachel and Lillian Entwistle, no one has been ruled in and no one has been ruled out as the perpetrator," said Middlesex District Attorney Martha Coakley. "Neil Entwistle is still considered a person of interest in this investigation, however reports that we have indicated that he is the only person of interest are not accurate. A person of interest is a person who we believe may have relevant information about the case that we are investigating. There have been a number of individuals-friends, family, former colleagues, and other acquaintances-in both the United States and the United Kingdom, who may have information that could be helpful to police as the investigation proceeds."


"There continues to be an extraordinary level of media attention to this case, and as a result, there are rumors, speculation, and false anonymous information circulating. For instance, information that activities relating to this investigation are taking place at a hotel in Rhode Island are completely inaccurate," District Attorney Coakley said. "This office has and will continue to provide accurate and up-to-date information as it is available and appropriate for release."
