Scarlett murder: Suspect No2 held.

A SECOND man was arrested yesterday over the murder of teenager Scarlett Keeling in Goa.

The lawyer acting for the 15-year-old's mum said the suspect's name was Placido Carvalho.

Vikram Varma added: "I expect he will be taken to the magistrates tomorrow so there can be a police remand for 14 days, so they can question him."

Some news reports in India last night claimed that Carvalho had already been charged with murder.

Barman Samson D'Souza, 28, is already in custody after being charged with raping Scarlett.

The latest arrest came as Indian police yesterday announced that Scarlett's mum Fiona MacKeown, 43, will not be investigated for negligence.

It had appeared likely she would be grilled about leaving her daughter

in the care of strangers in Goa while the family travelled to another state.

But police performed an abrupt U-turn after Fiona, of Bideford, Devon, wrote to Indian PM Manmohan Singh asking him to order a fresh investigation into Scarlett's death.

Her body was found on Anjuna beach on February 18.
