Police has started investigating the alleged rape and murder of the Irish tourist, who had arrived at Canacona sub-district, known for its popular beaches like Palolem and Agonda, from Arambol in North Goa.

According to the police, the deceased had come with a friend and had participated in Holi celebrations, before being found dead on Tuesday.

“We are investigating people with whom she was playing Holi during a party here. Her friend has also given us some leads and we are questioning some suspects,” a police officer familiar with the probe said on condition of anonymity.

Police, who are suspecting rape, have sent the body to the Goa Medical College near Panaji for a post mortem.

“The body was lying in a pool of blood without clothes and there were injuries to the head and face,” Deputy Superintendent of Police Sammy Tavares said.
