He was talking to tower and got a return after takeoff....don't know why yet...sounds like an engine problem, return to land stall/spin...?

Sounds like he lost an engine on takeoff - eyewitness said one of the engines wasn't running when he turned to come back.  Looks like the pilot was from the town that I live in (name is not familiar to me).
