‘Bid was made to gang rape Scarlett days before death’February 8th, 2009 - 9:55 pm ICT by IANS
London, Feb 8 (IANS) Scarlett Keeling, the British teenager found murdered on a Goa beach last year, was sexually attacked by up to six men days before she died, a British paper Sunday quoted the police as saying.
The Observer said Keeling sent an email to a Spanish friend two days before her death in February last year, revealing she went to a rave party where she took drugs, including MDMA, LSD and Ecstasy.
She then returned to a bar on Anjum beach closeby, where she was found dead later that week.
In her email, Keeling wrote: “Got a taxi bak to curlies and slept ther but the boys showed me some hardcore porn movis on a phone then they all took it in turns tryin 2 rape me.”
The paper said “curlies boys” refers to a group of six young Indian men who had gained the trust of Scarlett’s mother Fiona MacKeown, named after Curly’s - a beach bar frequented by Scarlett and her siblings.
The police say the youths could be the killers but they have not been arrested because the police are waiting to speak to MacKeown face-to-face, the paper reported.
