London, Apr 1: The body of Scarlett Keeling, British teenager who was raped and murdered in Goa, was brought back home by her mother last night. Mrs Fiona MacKeown arrived at Heathrow airport here on a flight from Mumbai with her daughter's coffin. ''It is really good to be back. I just want now to bury my daughter. Then I will return to Goa. I am worried it will all die down there now I have left,'' the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

The half-naked body of the 15-year-old was found on Anjuna Beach, Goa on February 19.Goa police initially said the death was an accidental drowning, after which Mrs MacKeown called for a second post-mortem examination which showed that Scarlett was attacked. The teenager, from north Devon, was on holiday with her family which was travelling elsewhere in the region when she was killed.

After the second post-mortem examination, it was revealed that Scarlett was given ecstasy, cocaine and LSD on the night she died. The police arrested two men-- Samson D'Souza, who was remanded in custody on suspicion of rape, and Placido Carvalho, who appeared in court on suspicion of drugging Scarlett.
