  1. Definitely a murder. Are their hands or mouth tied as in many other cases where police says that it was a suicide and there is no evidence of foul play. They had a fight previous night. The most likely killers are those people with whom they had the fight. Probably the couple was saying something not so respectful to their attackers but they could not kill them due to spectators, but then the attackers got “even” the following night. The Goa culture is macho culture. If you hurt somebody’s honor, you can get killed. The other reason could be robbery. Were their belongings, like cameras, computers and phones in the room, or did they disappear?
