Entwistle notebook professed love for family, sought money for story
WOBURN, Mass. -- Prosecutors have made public a notebook Neil Entwistle was carrying when he was arrested in London three weeks after the murders of his wife and baby daughter in Hopkinton.
On one side of the notebook, Entwistle professes love for his wife, Rachel, and 9-month-old daughter Lillian Rose. He writes of the pain of losing them in what sounds like a suicide note.
On the other side of the notebook, however, are letters he drafted to editors looking to sell the story of their deaths to the highest bidder.
In one of the letters, he describes himself as a "close friend and confidante" of Entwistle, who he says wants to "tell his side of the story."
Entwistle is prohibited from profiting off his story as part of the life sentence imposed on him today by Superior Court Judge Diane Kottmyer.
