Lawyer: Mother of dead Goa teen given protection

PANAJI, India (AP) — The mother of a British teenager who was allegedly raped and murdered on a beach in southern India has been provided with an armed escort, police said Monday.

Scarlett Keeling’s bruised and partially clothed body was found February 18 on Anjuna beach in Goa, a tiny state whose coastline is crowded with tourist resorts.

A post-mortem examination last week showed that she tested positive for drugs like cocaine and morphine.

Keeling’s mother Fiona MacKeown has been provided armed security at an undisclosed location within the state since Monday evening,a senior local police officer Bosco George said.

He gave no other details.

MacKeown’s lawyer Vikram Verma told reporters that she had faced considerable security risks and had asked for the protection.
