Short Case Synopsis - from Wikipedia
The bodies of 27-year-old Rachel and 9-month-old Lillian were found on 22 January 2006 in the master bedroom of the family's rented home where they had been living for ten days. Autopsy esults showed that Rachel died of a gunshot wound to the head and Lillian of a gunshot wound to the torso.

Hours after the deaths of his wife and daughter, Entwistle purchased a one-way ticket to London at about 5 am EST on 21 January and boarded a British Airways flight that departed Boston at 8:15 am.
On 23 January, Trooper Robert Manning of the Massachusetts State Police contacted Entwistle, by phone, at the home of his parents in Worksop. Entwistle told them that he had left his Hopkinton home at around 9 am EST three days previously to run an errand, and that his wife and daughter had both been alive and well, in the bed in the couple's master bedroom. He claimed that when he returned, at around 11 am, he found both had been shot dead. He covered their bodies with a blanket, and did not alert authorities.

Entwistle told the police that he was so distraught upon seeing the corpses of his wife and daughter that he decided to kill himself. However, because he was unable to bring himself to end his life with a knife, he drove the family car to his father-in-law Joseph Materazzo's house to get a .22LR caliber revolver. Finding the Materazzos' house locked, he told police that he then decided to fly home to England to see his parents.
