Fiona Mackeown, mother of slain British teenager, has said she would not bury Scarlett's body without the vital organs which are with the Goan authorities.

“I will wait till I get them (the organs). Without organs I am not going to bury the body,” Fiona said. Scarlett's body is currently with the UK authorities who are conducting the inquest autopsy on it. According to Fiona, the autopsy will take a few more days as it is a detailed one.

The 43-year-old mother is in Goa to follow up the case regarding the missing organs which were removed during two autopsies conducted in the Goa medical college and hospital here.

Scarlett had died on Goa's popular Anjuna beach on February 1. Investigations had revealed that she was drugged, raped and left to die in the shallow waters. Fiona said the Goan authorities were busy passing the bucks.
