Scarlett Eden Keeling (17 June 1992 – 17 February 2008) was a British teenager who was found raped and murdered at Anjuna Beach, Goa, India while spending her holidays. The incident brought international attention to Goa for safety of tourists.[1] Her body was brought to Devon and was buried on 15 June 2012, four years after her death.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Life

She was born to British-Irish mother Fiona MacKeown and Libyan-born concrete contractor Richard Keeling who split up at time of her birth.[9] [10] She wrote in her dairy that she experimented with drugs and sex.[11]

Murder

Fiona MacKeown returned to UK to identify her daughter's body and was criticized by police for neglecting her children.[12][13]

Michael Mannion told the press that he saw his friend Samson D'Souza raping Scarlet before her death,[14][15] D'Souza was working as barman in the club where Scarlet and her boyfriend used to drink. After identifying them Fiona MacKeown also accused the Goan police for covering-up the crimes. Samson D'Souza and Placido Carvalho were charged with rape and murder of Scarlet Keeling in 2010.[16][17][18][19]

In Film

2011 film Anjunaa Beach is based on the case.[20][21]
