April 1987, 16-year-old Schoolgirl Michelle Calvy was strangled while being raped. Michelle was late for her bus and took a shortcut down a canal towpath, Entwistle spotted her and stalked her for a while until he was sure he would not be seen, he then picked her up and threw her in his car, he then drove to a well know 'Lovers Lane', there he raped her, according to his later statement she begged to be let go, but he could not afford for her to report him, so he pulled her tee-shirt up around her neck, and strangled her., He then just dumped the body out of the car and drove off.
