British 'husband' questioned on Murder and eBay Scam

Allegations of an eBay scam and involvement in a get-rich-quick Internet porn scheme are swirling around a Massachusetts murder case. The case involves the murder of Rachel Entwistle, 27, and her nine-month-old daughter Lillian. The two were found dead, shot on Sunday 22nd January in their home in Hopkinton, Mass. Massachusetts detectives have traveled to England to question Rachel Entwistle's husband, Neil Entwistle. He is being described by police as a "person of interest" in the case, though he is not a suspect at this time, The Boston Globe reported on Friday. The computer connection comes via Neil Entwistle's alleged activities, which are being investigated by police. According to The Times of London, Entwistle may have been involved with a now-shuttered website,, which promised to help users get into the Internet porn business if they paid an $89 initial fee and about $25 per month thereafter. The Times said that information on the site also pointed toward an eBay seller who used the ID "SRPublications." On eBay, that seller has an unusually large number of negative feedback postings. One reads: "Seems to be a scam -- nothing received." Another feedback said: "Rachel Entwistle is a thieving Liar do not buy here!" The Entwistles' eBay account had been frozen by the online auction company about a week before the murders because of trading irregularities, according to the Boston Herald. (The eBay scheme is not connected to a similarly named, legitimate .com website in the United States.) On Friday morning, Neil Entwistle was headed to the U.S. Embassy in London to talk with Massachusetts detectives, according to a British report.
