LONDON, England -- Neil Entwistle, the Briton whose American wife and baby were found shot dead at their U.S. home, has gone voluntarily to the U.S. embassy in London to talk to officials about their deaths, British police said.

U.S. detectives arrived in England on Thursday to investigate the double murders in suburban Boston.

Entwistle, 27, has been labeled by Massachusetts officials as a "person of interest" in the case.

British police said he was driven from Nottinghamshire, the central English county where he grew up, to the capital on Friday to talk to the officials.

A spokeswoman said was "not being treated as a suspect in the murder of his wife and baby."

She said Entwistle, who is thought to have left the United States before the bodies of his wife Rachel and daughter Lillian were found on Sunday, was regarded as a potential witness to the killings.

Entwistle's car was found at Logan International Airport near Boston and records show he bought an air ticket to London 48 hours before the bodies of his wife and nine-month-old child were found.

Autopsy results showed the mother died of a gunshot wound to the head and the baby died of a gunshot to the stomach. The bodies were found under a pile of blankets in a bed in their home in Hopkinton about 48 kilometers (30 miles) west of Boston.

Entwistle and his family had lived in the United States for four to five months and began renting their home on January 12.

An family Web page that once focused on the couple and their baby -- http://www.rachelandneil.org/external link -- has now been transformed into a page of mourning.
